From M25 and A1
Turn off M25 at J23, take A1 southbound (Barnet Bypass) to Stirling Corner. Take turn off to Arkley/Barnet. After ½ mile  (0.8 kms) drive straight across at traffic lights (The Gate Public House) then after approx 50 yards (45 metres) turn right into Barnet Gate Lane. This road fairly winding and the entrance to the festival is approximately ¾ mile (1.2 kms) on your left hand side.

From A1000 (Great North Road)
Heading northbound (out of London) towards High Barnet, after passing Barnet Everyman Cinema on your left and under railway bridge – take second left at traffic lights into Mays Lane. Follow road for 1 ¾ miles (2.8 kms) – please be aware there is a 6’6″ width restriction on this stretch of road, vehicles wider than this should plan alternate route – the entrance to the festival site at Old Elizabethans will be on your right hand side.

We encourage car share when travelling to our festival, due to the limited car parking area at the site and is also friendlier to the environment.

Although the site is set in a semi-rural location, please remember when departing that the Old Elizabethans Memorial Playing Fields is close to a residential area and we politely ask that you leave quietly and be respectful of our neighbours. The main road can also be very busy and is not well lit after sunset, so please be very vigilant if leaving the site on foot.
