Castle Howard, Thursday 15th – Sunday 18th August
This event is expected to be very popular. Along with the opportunity to meet the presenters on the main stage, there will be a number of dedicated areas offering a wide range of countryside-related activities.
Please note that traffic diversions are in place. It is expected that the Castle Howard road will not be passable from Slingsby as the two arches will be one-way only (for vehicles approaching from the A64). Exit diversions encourage traffic to use other than the obvious routes to York and Scarborough, so be prepared for longer journey times generally.
Carparks open at 7am and, since visitors are being advised to arrive early, locals going to work (e.g via the A64) will wish to plan an alternative route. Similarly, those visiting Slingsby (e.g. for a meal at the Grapes Inn) will need to allow extra time.
