Find your way to Wildfest:

Nelson's Wharf is off the A426 near Southam and 6 miles south of Rugby. It's almost opposite The Boat Inn. It is a very long drive from the A426 so do not worry if you think you have taken a wrong turn! The entrance gate is just off the A426 and there are blue Nelson’s Wharf signs, we will also put some of our own banners up so you can’t miss it. Map below shows where the entrance is. 

Parking:There is plenty of parking at Nelson’s Wharf.  There is a car park within the event area which will be for disabled only. There is a large car park less than 100m from the entrance and once that is full we will be parking people along the drive.
