Visiting Chipping Norton

The festival is based in the centre of Chipping Norton. All the venues are within a 10 minute walk of each other, which makes getting to consecutive events at different venues possible and practical.


The train line between London Paddington and Kingham (the nearest station to Chipping Norton) has been closed between Paddington and Oxford until the end of May.

This means that unless you are coming from Oxford or the west of the country, that line is unavailable.

If you are travelling from London by train, you should go via London Marylebone to Banbury. The 488 bus goes from Banbury town centre, five minutes walk from the station. It takes approx 50 minutes to get to Chipping Norton.


We aim to ensure that our Festival venues are accessible to all. Chipping Norton is very hilly and can be sometimes be awkward to negotiate. For more details please get in touch,

We offer disabled ticket holders a free ticket, subject to availability, for a personal assistant. Visitors with limited mobility will be allocated the most accessible seats. Please advise the Box Office of any access requirements when booking.
