eFestivals is fund-raising

eFestivals has been here 20 years supporting festivals and festival goers. Without your support it will not continue as it has been.
Advertising used to pay the bills but advertising revenues are much less than they were.

Festivals: if you'd like us to continue to promote your event to our 650,000 monthly readers you'll need to give a helping hand.
Festival-Goers: if every visitor in just one day donated just £2, that would provide funding for a whole year.

You can donate or sign up for 'gold' (ad-free) membership, or you can contact the editor.

Train's booked to arrive at Castle Cary abt 10:20am on the Wednesday, I was wondering does anyone know what it's like there and how quick it is to get to the festival from there? I imagine it's going to be pretty chaotic with so many people.

If I'm heading to Worthy View, what would be my best course of action - free shuttle to site and shuttle to worthy view or taxi straight there?

Many thanks!

You'll probably get to the coach station at Gate A between 11 and 12:00 - can't imagine it being too bad at that time of day though it depends a bit on the specific trains that have just arrived - one minute the station might be empty, the next overflowing.

Best course of action will depend on whether / how long the queue for the WV shuttle is and how much you're carrying - if you've got nothing with you then I'd say any wait longer than about 45 minutes means you'd be better off going through the site. If you're lugging kit with you then waiting becomes a lot more desirable. Hopefully if you ask the stewards in the coach station they should be able to give you an idea of how long it's going to be.

Ah ok thank you!

Might just be easier getting a taxi directly there from the train station if I have to wait 45 mins for the 2nd shuttle.

I've never done it but you might find taxis hard to come by. Are they even allowed to drop off at Worthy View?

I think there's a direct shuttle from Castle Cary to Worthy View (it's my first time in WV this year so I haven't tried this, but I'm sure I saw it on the website).
