Kemble Airfield has been renamed Cotswold Airport and some of the signposts pointing to the site have changed or been removed. The matter is further confused in that there are two entrances to the site.

Directions by Road

The only entrance leading to the Festival site is the one situated on the A429, Cirencester to Malmesbury road. This is still signposted Kemble Airfield from the south.

If travelling from London, the South, or South West along the M4, exit at junction 17 and take the A429 north towards Malmesbury and Cirencester following signs to Kemble Airfield. The Main Gate is at about 13 miles on the left. You can’t miss it!

If travelling from the north down the A429 from Cirencester: about 1 mile out of the town, there is a junction where the A429 branches off to the left towards Malmesbury and Chippenham. Turn left and continue on the A429 ignoring the signs to Cotswold Airport – there is no sign to Kemble airfield. Continue through the village of Kemble and you will soon see the airfield perimeter fence on your right. The Main Gate will come up on your right.

The postcode for those using Sat Nav systems is GL7 6BQ or if you prefer the coordinates, they are: Eastings 396473 – Northings 195978.
