The Festival™ presented by Magners

Please note: applications of coach parking and purchasing car parking must be complete a week before The Festival. You are able to purchase car parking on the day for £25. We do not offer coach drivers a complimentary entry ticket. 

Due to recent wet weather our car parks are wet  – please be aware that racegoers who have not pre-purchased car parking will be parked in the best possible position but may be some distance from the race course, please allow extra time to walk from the car parks to the racecourse entrances, and we are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
