Getting to and from Lytham Festival

11 months ago Wed 3rd Jul 2019

Heading to Lytham Festival this year?

With a star-studded line up including the Human League, Kylie, Rod Stewart, The Stereophonics, Sheridan Smith and Michael Ball (just to name a few) this year's festival promises to be a special event and we, want to help you get there and back as easy as possible!

Getting to Lytham Festival

If you are traveling by train and arriving at Blackpool North there are regular buses which depart from Market Street, just a 5-minute walk from the train station. On leaving the train station, catch the Service 11 or 17 from signposted bus stops on Market Street.

Service 11 & 17 run frequently throughout the day and every 30 minutes in the evening. On Sunday, both services operate a 30-minute frequency all day.

Service 11 timetable can be found here:

Service 17 timetable can be found here:

Leaving Lytham Festival

For travel to Blackpool after the festival, our services 11 & 17 run every 30 minutes at 04, 07, 34 & 37 minutes past each hour.

Not only that but we'll be adding some extra journeys on the evenings to make sure that you get home safely. This means that you will be able to catch a bus from Lytham Festival to Blackpool town centre at approximately;

Service 11 Service 17
23:04 23:07
23:09 23:12
23:29 23:37
23:34 23:42
23:59 00:07
00:04 00:12

We've also extended the last two service 7 journeys in the evenings during the festival so that they will travel all the way to Cleveleys via Bispham rather than just stopping in Blackpool Town Centre.

You'll be able to connect with the service 7 from St Annes Square or Blackpool Town Centre. Check the Service 7 timetable to plan your journey.

Travelling to Preston from Lytham Festival?

If you've travelled into or from Preston for the festival we've got you covered! We'll be running two special services each night picking you up and taking you all the way to Preston Train Station for just £6.50. These special services will also travel through Freckleton and Warton on their way and you'll be able to get off at any bus stops along the route. Prices for the bus to Preston are;

Warton / Freckleton - £3.00

Lea - £6.00

Preston Train Station - £6.50 

The two services from Lytham Festival to Preston Train Station will leave from Lytham Square at 22:45 and at 23:15. We'll have members of the team on hand to help you get to where you need to be. 

Where to catch the bus

On leaving the festival area all buses can be caught from Lytham Square. Follow the signs for buses from the festival exit. Buses to Blackpool can only be caught from the stop outside Pizza Express.

How to travel

The cheapest way to travel with Blackpool Transport is by using a saver ticket. If you are making a return journey, the best ticket for you is a 24-hour ticket and this will help the driver to get you on board as quickly as possible.

Download the Blackpool Transport app to ensure you have access to all timetables, real-time bus arrivals and to purchase your ticket on your phone. Just search ‘Blackpool Transport’ on Apple or Android.

The buses are extremely busy when departing Lytham and we advise you not to wait until the very last bus to get home. We can’t guarantee that there will be space for everybody, so please ensure that you arrive at the stop with plenty of time to spare.

If you need any help with journey planning prior to the event, just get in touch with a member of the team.

As one of Lancashire's best and most loved music festival's, and with an incredible line-up, Lytham Festival promises to be a fun event for all the family and any music lovers to enjoy!
