GETTING TO THE FESTIVAL
The Festival brochure published by Medway Council is the source of all the information you need. The brochure will be available as a download from Medway Council, and also in print from the Medway Visitor Information Centre and other outlets in the Rochester area, as well as at the Festival itself.
The Festival events almost all take place in the old town on the High Street between the bottom of Star Hill and the Medway road bridge, and around the Castle and the Cathedral (centred on postcode ME1 1LX).
The town centre is well served by local car parks - most of the year! During festivals the demand increases enormously, and some car parks become unavailable because they have become part of the venue. If you are arriving independantly you are strongly advised to use the efficient 'park and ride' service, but be sure to check the time of the last bus. Park and ride information is on the map page of the programme.
If you prefer public transport, the train station is within easy reach, there is a good bus service, and many day trips by coach are available.
If you are making a weekend of it and don't live locally it may be worth finding a hotel near the town centre. If you are looking for a campsite in the area you might like to try pitchup.com . They seem to have a lot of useful information, but we haven't used them so let us know how you get on.
There is no need to worry about finding refreshments, although things can get very busy at peak times.
