Road Closures during folk festival
25 May 2016 by James
Due to the size and nature of the event, it is important that we close roads at certain times of the weekend for the safety of our performers and attendees. You can find the road closure times and information below.
Roads closed 6pm Friday 10 June to 5pm Sunday 12 June: East Borough, The Square, High Street, Church Street, West Row, Corn Market, Cook Row.
Roads closed 1:30pm to 3:30pm Saturday 11 June: Park Lane, East Street for the procession.
The alternative route for diverted traffic will be via Rowlands Hill and Hanham Road (and via Park Lane and East Street except during the procession on Saturday 11 June).
Stewards will be stationed at strategic points to ensure only those taking part in the festival and emergency vehicles have access. However, access for commercial vehicles only to the Town Centre up to 10am on Saturday & Sunday will be permitted.
If any of our road closures affect access to your property, we are sorry for any inconvenience caused. If you have any concerns during the festival weekend, please speak to one of the festival stewards, who will be clearly identifiable.
