Clean & Green

Chalfest aspires to be a sustainable event, following the same ‘Leave no Trace’ principles of bigger festivals and in certain comparisons doing better!
Transport is already minimal as most attendees live locally, a shuttle bus will bring in others from further afield. Catering suppliers are local too, with many food and drink products made locally.
To minimise our waste impact, please reuse your Chalfest cups from last year if you still have them, or buy a new one at the start of the

event. Water bowsers will be on site to wash your mug if needed. By all means bring a refillable coffee mug or crockery of your own.
Where that isn’t practical, we are building on last year’s hugely successful compostable food and drink containers, ALL vendors will be using these to ensure no plastic ends up where it shouldn’t.
Numerous on site multi bin recycling points will be well sign posted, Please take time to familiarise yourself with what goes where.

Travel Information

Here are all the essential details for getting to us

Shuttle Bus from Stroud
There are four shuttle buses and they start leaving Stroud at 10.15am. The times they leave are therefore 10.15, 10.25, 10.35 and 10.45. They leave from Bus Stop N, outside the Vue cinema, Merrywalks GL5 1RY. They will not stop until they reach the festival site via Toadsmoor.
You must bring your bus ticket that you purchased from Ticketfairy and have it scanned by the Chalfest team before you get on the bus. There are no bus tickets left. The return buses will leave the site at 9.40pm and head back to bus stop N.
If you wish you can take the regular 64 bus to Chalford Hill which stops by the festival site.

Local shuttle bus in Chalford/Eastcombe
A bus will run from the festival site to the bus stop on the road next to Thomas Keble school where it will pick up passengers and around to Bussage where it will pick up passengers on Tanglewood Way outside Tescos. Please note that you are not allowed to leave your car at Thomas Keble school, it is not a park and ride. It will then head on to the site and repeat this journey from 11am until 1pm.
The cost is £1 per person per journey (under 16s are free). Please have the correct change ready.

Car Park
The car park is situated on the Chalford Hill School Sports field on Highfield Way GL6 8LZ. You can only park here if you have purchased a parking permit via Ticketfairy. Please make sure you bring your car park ticket with you. The car park is open from 10am and manned throughout the day. We accept no responsibility for cars left overnight and ask that all cars vacate the car park on the same day.

There is no other parking within half a mile of the site. Gloucestershire Highways will enforce any parking restrictions/cones on all surrounding roads and anyone found to have parked illegally will have their car removed. Local residents will have leaflets in the next few days explaining how they can get parking permits if they need to park on the road.

Blue Badge Car Park
This is in the car park of the Chalford Sports and Social Club which is 50 metres beyond the Main Car Park. Please email if you wish to use this car park stating make, model and registration of the vehicle.

There is no taxi rank at Chalfest. We suggest pick/drop off is best in the car park of the Old Neighbourhood pub on Midway GL6 8EN.

From Cheltenham head in via Bisley and you will see signs for Chalford Hill and then Chalfest.
From Stroud and Cirencester. Leave the London Road (A419) and take the turning to Toadsmoor Road. Stay on that road which will take you past Thomas Keble School on your right. Take the next right down Middle Hill. Head straight over the next junction and keep going until you turn left onto Burcombe Road. You will see the festival in front of you. You will be asked to turn left and you will find the car park on your left.

Arriving by boat
You’re very lost. Turn around.
