Festival 2021 coach schedule

Our coach service to and from Lewes station will operate again this year but for a cost – unfortunately social distancing requirements make it prohibitively expensive to offer this for free. For £10 you can secure a return journey, bookable online or by calling the Box Office on +44 (0)1273 815 000. You can find the timetable for the coaches by clicking the button below.

It is essential to pre-book the coach service – booking closes 48 hours before each performance.
