  • Festival traffic from Mid and North Wales as well as the M53 Liverpool will approach from both directions on the A41 from Chester and A534 from Wrexham.
  • The traffic will then be directed to one of the car parks around the estate.

Whilst the organisers will make every effort to work with this plan, changing conditions may require changes to be made when prior notice cannot be given.

We wish Bolesworth Estate success in this premier event on The Sandstone Ridge.
