Bus Service Laid On For Festival

The organisers of the Godiva Festival are to lay on a special bus service for festival-goers during the event this weekend.

Coventry and Warwickshire Promotions will be funding a pick-up service around the city centre and up to the event at the Memorial Park on Saturday.

There will be a 12-minute service between 12.30pm (first service from city centre) and 10pm (last service from park).

Fares will be 55p adult return and 27p child return. OAPs travel free.

Pick-up points in the city centre are the Park and Ride South bus stops in Warwick Road, The Quadrant, Little Park Street, Broadgate, Corporation Street, Queen Victoria Road and Greyfriars Road.

The two West Midlands Travel buses will be marked Godiva Festival Special.

The service is being provided to compensate for the closure of the Park and Ride South bus service in the Memorial Park during festival week.

The Park and Ride will be closed all day on Thursday for All Schools Day and all day on Friday and Saturday for the Godiva Festival.

The Park and Ride North service at Austin Drive, Courthouse Green is unaffected. 

Mick Emerson, operations manager for the Godiva Festival, said:

"Because of the events in the park the public will not be able to use the Park and Ride South service on those days.

“We apologise for that but we hope that our bus service on Saturday, June 10 will make it easy for people to get to the festival from the city centre".

For festival information ring Freephone 0500 777200.

Don’t forget that you can see CWN in the Lives and Times History tent in the park on both Saturday and Sunday.
