COVID 19 AWARE – Seating in the marquees will be spaced out in accordance with government regulations. The sides of the venues will be removed where possible so it should be possible to experience concerts from outside of the venue. We will do our utmost to provide safe and rule abiding entertainment and activities throughout the weekend. We will take every possible action to ensure the safety of all festival attendees.

How do I get to the festival?
The festival entrance is Warwick Castle Drive, less than two miles from junction 15 of the M40. Follow the signs for Warwick Castle as we will be using the castle entrance for all visitors.
Our address is: Castle Park, Warwick CV34 6AH Turn into the Warwick Castle car park entrance on Stratford Road Warwick,
Note. It is not advisable to travel through Warwick town centre as it is very congested at busy times it is best to plan your rote to junction 15 of the M40 and come in on the Stratford Road this will miss the town centre traffic.
The festival site will open at 13.00 on Thursday 21st July please do not arrive before that because the castle day visitors will be using that entrance before that time.
Day Visitors please use the Car Park next to the Box Office on the festival site.
If you’re getting the train to Warwick folk Festival from the south, there are direct trains to Warwick station from London Marylebone, taking around 1 hour 45 minutes. For most visitors in the west and the north, the best option is to change at Birmingham Snow Hill for direct trains to Warwick. The festival site is about a mile and a half from the station, so well within walking distance. There are also taxis available from the station forecourt.
Get a bus to the bus station on Bowling Green Street, Warwick. Then you can get the free festival bus to the festival site from 16.00 on the Thursday.
You can enter from the castle/town gate off Castle Street Warwick, then follow the foot path down the festival site adjacent to the castle overflow carpark.
