Thaxted Festival takes place in the medieval Parish Church of the beautiful Essex town of Thaxted, easily accessible from the M11 & Stansted Airport. The town’s main free car park is in Margaret Street, CM6 2QN.

There is an additional free car park in Park Street CM6 2ND and overflow parking is at the Recreation Ground, Newbiggen Street CM6 2QT (about five minutes’ walk).


All concerts are accessible for wheelchair and mobility users. Ramps are provided for access, and spaces are available to book for all concerts. The ticket price for a space includes one companion seat. Please call the office to discuss any specific requirements, particularly in the context of this historic church building.

Limited disabled parking for blue badge holders may be available at the Church by prior reservation, which must be made by telephone at the time of booking. (Please leave a telephone message on 01371 831421 when booking, and we will return your call as soon as possible.) Availability of parking was restricted in 2021 due to distancing requirements.
