Parents are responsible for the safety and wellbeing of their children at all times.
We aim to be a family-friendly event. We are all volunteers, so we need your consideration and collaboration to make it a safe and fun day out. Please hold hands with children during the procession, and please keep them near you at the Quadrangle – the River Darent is at the bottom of the field. And please stay with your children during the workshops and activities.
By train: come to Shoreham station in Kent (not Sussex!) The line runs to Sevenoaks/Otford in one direction, with fast connections to Charing Cross and Victoria respectively, and to Swanley/Bromley South/ Blackfriars/St Pancras in the other.
The last train from Shoreham station to Blackfriars via Swanley, Bromley etc on Saturday night is 22.41 [TBC]
The last train travelling to Otford and Sevenoaks and thus later connections to London if needed is 23.04 [TBC]
Please use Public Transport if you can, it’s only ten minutes walk from the station, and the same from Shoreham Village. Temporary festival parking: follow the signs into the field which is just inside the entrance to Shoreham Place on Station Road – space for about 25 cars. Please park carefully and at your own risk. There is also a free car park on Filston Lane and street parking near Shoreham station.
There is some parking in a field at the Quadrangle, which is on a private road off the A225, opposite the junction with Fackenden Lane – it will be signposted, but it’s fairly narrow and bumpy! You can walk back via the footpath over the golf course to Shoreham village, where your car will be ready to take you home.
Remember to bring a torch if you think you might need to walk in the dark.
Quadrangle. Wheelchair accessible toilets.
Equal access facilities at venues
At the Quadrangle, most areas can be accessed from ground level, but some have one or two steps to access. Some activities and workshops take place in the field, so the quality of the surface will rather depend on weather conditions.
If you have any special access needs please contact us at email Sarah Newman. or on the phone number in the contact details.
