Getting to Barefoot Festival
Please Note: Upon your arrival please do not use the Prestwold Hall main entrance, instead follow the temporary signs for the Barefoot Festival parking area.
We'd prefer you to travel by public transport, but if you do bring a vehicle, please remember to buy a parking pass, and if possible minimise fossil fuel use (and your costs) by filling your vehicle with other festival folk. You could try finding like-minded people to travel with via the super simple goCarShare service (click the widget below) or liftshare.com.
Prestwold Hall is incredible easy to find and is well signposted. Leave junction 23 of the M1 and follow the A512 into Loughborough. When driving through the town follow signs for the A60 and then signs for Prestwold Hall itself. Prestwold is located on the B675, also called Prestwold Lane, around half a mile outside the village of Hoton on the left hand side as you drive towards Barrow Upon Soar.
