If you do want to join us all enjoying the beer, food, music, and hopefully the good weather… you’ll need to know where to find it if you’re not a local.  You’re in luck!

The Festival is held in massive marquees on the river embankment in Peterborough. The site is only a few minutes walk from Peterborough railway station and the bus and coach stations.

The address is: The Embankment (Behind Key Theatre), Embankment Road, Peterborough, PE1 1EF

Taxis are available at the railway station and bus station and we provide a taxi rank near the Key Theatre at the entrance to the Embankment. We do not allow taxis on to the Embankment (excepting those used by wheelchair users) for the safety of our pedestrian customers.

If you are travelling by public transport then you can plan your rail journey on the National Rail site or your bus/coach journey on the Traveline site.
