Splendour Festival

Nottingham’s favourite family festival returns to the beautiful setting of Wollaton Park on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th July 2022.

We're providing a frequent service between the City Centre and Wollaton Park and back, making it the easiest way to get to and from the Splendour festival

Buses to and from Wollaton Park:

Festival goers can either use Pink 30 for the Wollaton Road entrance or Orange 35, 36 for the Derby Road entrance, which are both easily accessible to the Festival entrance. The recommended City Centre bus stop is on Milton Street, alongside Victoria Centre.

At the end of Splendour, from approx. 21:00 until after the end of the event, Pink 30 will operate from inside Wollaton Park from a dedicated event bus stop near the Wollaton Road entrance providing a high frequency service direct to the City Centre, dropping off on Talbot Street, South Sherwood Street and Victoria Centre.
