Stallholders will be issued with a field lay out prior to accessing the field to reduce traffic queues on the High Street. This will ensure a quicker access onto the field.

Stallholders will be issued with a pass to park on the QEII Playing field.

There will be NO public parking in the village hall car park.

The Paxfest Committee would like to encourage residents to leave their cars at home and walk/cycle or scoot to the event.

If you are visiting Little Paxton for Paxfest, please park on streets near the High Street (not on street corners)
