After 1.5 miles take the B4101 Left signed BEOLEY / HOCKLEY HEATH / TANWORTH IN ARDEN. From here please follow the Lunar Festival signs which will guide you towards Umberslade Farm Park.
  • Is there a charge to park my car?

This year we will be asking for £10 per car on arrival. This charge will go towards the maintenance of the car parking field during, and after, the event. It will also cover the cost of stewarding the car park.

Please note the car park is a 10-15 minute walk to the festival site.

There will be wheelbarrows at the box office to help carrier items to the camping field (subject to availability/deposit required).

We politely ask festival goers to minimise trips to/from Lunar festival to reduce congestion in the village and festival site, wear and tear of parking fields and our carbon footprint.
