Bunkfest Trains : Travel to Bunkfest on our famous singing trains

One of the largest free festivals in the UK.  On the banks of the Thames in South Oxfordshire, Wallingford BunkFest is a free-access community festival providing a unique, family friendly celebration with something for everyone.

Following last years popularity, we are running trains on all 3 days, with trains starting at 2pm on Friday.  Walk up tickets are available to buy at Wallingford, or on the train if boarding at Cholsey.

Let the train take the strain and enjoy Bunkfest without the hassle of finding somewhere to park or working out how you are getting home.  Artists are on most trains in the day and evening.  As always we will have ales on the train and this year a bar at Wallingford station too.

Save money this year with our all weekend tickets, or buy our all day tickets to travel as much as you want on a single day.

Evening trains - single tickets home - are available to buy on the day.
