Please Note there is NO street parking on all roads close to the festival site. A residents only parking scheme will be in place for the duration of the festival.
The main car park is at Irlam Primary School, Elsinore Avenue, Irlam, M44 6NA. Parking is by pre-paid ticket only available from the TICKETS page. All profits from the car park go to the school. The entrance to Elsinor Avenue is via Liverpool Road, (B5320) close to the junction with Broadway and stewards will be on hand to offer assistance if required.

The main car park on Elsinore Avenue is 0.5km / 0.3 miles away from the festival entrance. The whole journey is on hard-standing pathways with some crossing of roads using pelican crossings.
