Cycling and Walking:
Kirkleatham is on a cycle route with plenty of cycle parking onsite. For more information on routes visit
The main approach road to Kirkleatham Village is the A174 ‘Parkway’. The principle access routes to the A174 are the A19 which runs north from York and the south from Newcastle.
The A171 runs North West from Scarborough to Guisborough linking to the A174 via the B1269.
Follow the Brown signs.
Parking around the site is controlled and all Festival goers should park in the Festival car park – there is no on street parking nearby
The parking charge is £5 – if you can get 5 in your car this is £1 per person – very thrifty indeed! (Which other national festival could you do this at?)We are a free Festival and want to keep it that way – the car parking charge helps us put money back into the festival.
Several taxi companies operate in the area, JP Taxis 01642 474849, Frontline 01642 494949
The site is very accessible for buggies, pushchairs and wheelchairs although some of the activities are on grass. The woodland areas have pathways mostly laid with gravel and edged for clearly marked routes. Most pathways will be wide enough for access.
There are two accessible car parks for those with Blue Badges (please follow the signs) there is a shuttle service for those with access requirements from the main car park into the centre of the site.
Please note that the site does get busy!
There are a host of things to do and places to stay in and around Redcar & Cleveland. Here’s a handy guide.
