The service will coincide with the arrival of trains from London Waterloo and Reading into Bracknell Railway Station.

Festival co-organiser Michael Keen said: “I’m flattered to think we now have companies approaching us wanting to run services like this. It really shows how our festival has grown from an attendance of 80 in 2011 to over 1,000 in 2015 that the towns main bus company is keen to get involved with us!”


The first service will depart from Bracknell Bus Station (Stand 4) at from 11:50 in the morning and at 20 and 50 minutes past each hour until 22:50.

Return services from Bracknell Rugby Club to Bracknell Bus Station will run from midday and then on the hour and half past every hour until 23:00.

Bus fare

Courtney Buses are very kindly running this service at no extra cost to the festival – meaning we can raise more money for the Rugby Club.

There will be a charge to passengers however which will be £2.20 single, and £3.50 return.

Whichever way you look at it, we think you will agree this is much cheaper than a return taxi on a bank holiday weekend!
