Important arrival info – please read!
The usual football club entrance off ‘The Triangle’ will be restricted to disabled badge holders, participants and organisers. The main pedestrian/foot access will be via the footpath that runs alongside the Community Hall (and the old library), which is accessed off Bridge Street, opposite The Elachai Indian restaurant. Please use this footpath to access the festival site.

Bus
There are bus stops on the main road near to the site entrance and Belper Bus Station is on Chapel Street – about a 10 minute walk.

Train
Belper Station is off King Street – about a 5 minute walk. There are regular trains on the Derwent Valley Line running from Nottingham and Derby to Matlock.

Car
There is no general parking on site.
On site parking is for disabled blue badge holders only. Nearby paying car parks can be found at Belper Mills (2 mins walk, a few spaces) and Field Lane (about 5 mins walk) and also at Green Lane and the Coop in town. Free car parking will be available at Babington Hospital (15 mins walk) but please be aware this is not managed by BGG festival, and Coppice Car Park is also free (near the Market Place, 10 mins walk).

EV charging
Charging points are available at Morrison’s, Field Lane and Coppice Car Park.

Belper Goes Green is proud to say that all of our stages, as well as our PA system, will now be powered by two solar trailers. The larger one, ‘Solar Gennie’, was developed by our Energy Group during 2021 thanks to a grant we received from the Lottery Community Fund via Transition Network.

In 2019 we had huge success with recycling at the festival. A high percentage of waste was recycled with a small quantity of waste processed to energy. We also sold reusable plastic beer cups to cut down on waste. For 2022 we have banned all single-use plastic cups and cutlery and have continued our ban on polystyrene food containers.

Please DO NOT bring your own alcohol onto the festival site. Anyone found doing so will have their drinks confiscated and be asked to leave immediately.

The festival risks losing its licence if the public do not follow this rule. Thank you.
