EMF Bus Service
Each day of the Festival, the EMF operates a bus service between Didcot Parkway railway station and Dorchester-on-Thames; and a shuttle bus service from Dorchester to those concerts that take place at Radley College or at All Saints’ Church, Sutton Courtenay. The full timetable is published on the dedicated EMF Bus Service page and may also be downloaded from the same page as a PDF (which can, of course, be printed for ease of reference during the Festival itself!). Spaces will, however, be extremely limited and we cannot guarantee that tickets will be available to purchase on board: advance booking is therefore strongly recommended. To book tickets, please visit Box Office Bus Service.
Our POI (Points of Interest) files contain the positions of each of the Festival venues (Dorchester Abbey, Radley College and All Saints’ Church, Sutton Courtenay) for installation on a SatNav device. The two files provided should be compatible with most types of device currently on the market: however, if your SatNav uses a different file format, or if you experience any difficulty downloading or installing the files, please contact us.

There is limited on-street parking throughout the town. The Festival car park will be located at the Recreation Ground, at the north end of Dorchester-on-Thames.
Three parking bays are provided at Bridge End, opposite Dorchester Abbey.
From Monday to Saturday, bus no.106 goes from Oxford Rail Station (stop R4) and St Algate’s (stop G2) to Dorchester-on-Thames Memorial (and vice versa), in some cases changing at Berinsfield. Please note that there is no Sunday service and there is no service back to Oxford after the evening concert. The no.138 bus also runs from Wallingford to Dorchester-on-Thames and the no.140 from Abingdon to Dorchester-on-Thames, Monday to Friday.
