Directions for Cars: Travelling by public transport reduces pollution and allows you to beat the queues. Please seriously consider leaving your car at home. If you don’t fancy the train or coach you can always contact others travelling to the festival on the car-sharing website www.liftshare.com or on our website message boards at http://forum.globalgathering.co.uk Global Gathering has put in place a tried and tested traffic routing for people arriving by car to avoid the traffic in Stratford-Upon-Avon town centre. Congestion can be very bad on Friday evenings and during Saturday from midday to late evening. Please follow the Global Gathering route signage at all times! There are now three entrances to the site and if one entrance is congested, traffic will be diverted to alternative entrances. The traffic team may vary routes in order to help you avoid the worst congestion - so you must follow the signs. They will get you to the event site quicker. From the North Friday & Saturday PM At Junction 3a on the M42 take the M40 south to junction 15 where you then take the A429 onto the Wellesbourne bypass, and then onto the A3400. Take the A3400 towards Stratford and then the B4623 and follow signs to the event site. You need to look for the sign posts on junction 15 and follow the signed route at the time you arrive. From the North Saturday AM Leave the M40 at Junction 15 and follow the route signs to the Global Gathering. You will be directed along the A46 to Stratford town centre on either the A 439 or the A 3400. Follow the route signs through Stratford to pick up the A 3400 south of Stratford. Route signage will direct you off the A 3400 onto the B4632 and then to the site. From the South Friday & Saturday Leave the M40 at Junction 12 and follow the route signage. Take a left onto the B4451 and then right on to the B4100. Continue up to the island where you take a left on to the B4455 towards Tredington.
