Lydiard Park, Lydiard Tregoze, Swindon, SN5 3PA (for SAT NAV please follow SN5 3NY as this takes you to the Hook Street entrance which is where the event is being held) .
For the easiest access, please leave the M4 at Junction 16, onto the A3102 and then turn left onto the B4534 and then at the roundabout, turn left onto Hook Street where you will find the entrance on the right hand side. Temporary signage will be visible as well as the standard brown signage directing guests to Lydiard Park.

Please note, the council operates a pay and display car parking scheme at the park, £2 for 2 hours and £4 for the whole day.  At the time of amending this page (27th June), the pay and display machines were faulty and not charging at all, hopefully this remains the same during the event.
