Getting to Deva Fest couldn’t be easier!

Deva Fest takes place at Chester Lakes, Dodleston which is around three miles south of the famous City of Chester.

Chester Lakes is just moments away from Junction 38 of the A55 expressway. You are just 45 minutes by car from Manchester and Liverpool with Motorway and dual carriageway almost to our door and there is plenty of free parking on site

If you are arriving by train Chester station is connected to Liverpool, Manchester, North Wales, London, the Midlands and the North West with regular fast and direct services and you can catch our shuttle bus from there to the festival. Outside of shuttle bus operation times there is a taxi rank at the station, and the fare should be around £10.

Shuttle Buses

For 2022 we will be operating a shuttle bus to a timetable from Ellesmere Port, Chester Railway Station, Chester City Centre,  Wrexham and stops on the way to the festival.

Buses will run each day we are open on two routes. Our buses run just before we are open with pick ups between 11am and midday and return after the last act has finished, which should mean return departures around 11pm.

Route 1

Ellesmere Port Bus Station (stand subject to confirmation) – Stanney Lane – Backford (A41) – Long Lane Chester (A41) – Hoole Road – Hoole Lane –  Chester Railway Station – Chester City Centre  (City Road, Grosvenor Park Road, Lower Bridge Street) – Handbridge – Overleigh Road – Lache Lane, Westminster Park – Festival (and return)

Mersey Forest

In 2022 we are supporting local environmental group Mersey Forest who work to plant trees in the North West to combat climate change. We will charge a nominal £1 fee for each return shuttle bus ticket bought. All proceeds from the shuttle bus will be donated to the Mersey Forest.

If you have bought tickets for the 2020 or 2021 event which are now valid for the 2022 event you do not need to buy new shuttle bus tickets.

How the Bus System will work

Lakeside of Ellesmere will provide our shuttle buses for 2022.

Deva Fest 2022 will have more than treble the guests that we had in 2019 which brings challenges as it looks like up to one thousand people per day will be using one of the two routes to bring you to Deva Fest.

What we don’t want to happen is that you all turn up at the same time and we don’t have room for you, or that you have to wait an age.

So we will be contacting all tickets holders who have asked to use the shuttle service during June 2022 or so to give you the exact routes. We will ask you to nominate a bus stop where you are getting on. That will allow us to understand specific numbers using each stop and send out the right number of vehicles.

We will then allocate a bus to you with a specific time for you to get on.

It is a fairly big operation, so we won’t be able to accommodate requests like being able to sit together (of course you can if there is space and you are on the same bus!!!) or meeting a friend getting on elsewhere on the route, but we will get you there and hopefully with the minimum of fuss.

Understanding who is going where will also help us have the right number of buses ready to get you home at the end of the night.

The buses will only run right at the start of the day – pick ups will be between 1115 and 1230. Outside of those times you need to make your own way to the event. Going home the services will be after the last act finishes.

Our shuttle buses are operated by a third party & their conditions of carriage apply.

Outside of operating times it is your responsibility to travel to or from the festival site.
