TRANSPORT

Inclusivity and access are things we’re passionate about to enable everyone to come who’d like to.  Check here for updates but do email us if this is a concern for you at primadonnafestival@gmail.com

 

Public Transport

The nearest railway stations are Ipswich or Stowmarket.  Stowmarket is slightly closer to us but Ipswich has better onward transport.   Prebooked train tickets are available quite cheaply if bought in advance and if travelling off peak.  They can be bought online from Trainline and other sites. We expect to be offering a free or nominally charged festival bus link between Ipswich and the festival site over the course of the weekend.  Check here for updates. This will run from Pentahotel (where you can stay for a special Primadonna discount) which is just a short walk from Ipswich station. Alternatively you can pick up a taxi from outside of the station, but please make sure you book your return journey at the same time.  A taxi fare between Pettaugh and Ipswich is around £25 each way.  If you have accessibility issues requiring someone to meet you at the station please let us know.

 

By Car

From London  – take the north circular or M25 to A12 and then continue past Colchester to Ipswich. Then at the roundabout just as you come into Ipswich take the first exit onto the A14 towards Bury St Edmunds.

Between Ipswich and Stowmarket on the A14 take the junction signposted A140 to Norwich. When you come into a village called The Stonhams, turn right onto the A1120 at the bottom of the hill. Follow the A1120 for a couple of miles until you reach a T junction in the village of Pettaugh. Turn right and follow the road sharp left and out of the village, with the church on your left. As soon as you pass a 40mph sign you will see our gates on the right.

 

Car Pools

We’d really encourage car pooling from different locations.  If you have space, or need a lift please use social media to share the message via our Twitter or Facebook pages, or please let us know.

 

By Coach

We are looking at operating a coach service from London to the festival site on the Friday late morning (to Suffolk) and Sunday late pm (to London). This would provide a cheaper alternative to rail travel so please let us know if you are interested in using this via primadonnafestival@gmail.com so that we can assess demand.
