Festival  venue


The Royal Grammar School Worcester (RGSW)

Upper Tything





The prestigious Royal Grammar School (RGS) Worcester is once again the chosen venue for the festival. Its city centre location means access by public transport is convenient, but naturally, an ancient city like Worcester will have parking challenges for car drivers. Please see the location map for parking and railway station. There is no onsite parking.


The nearest train station is Foregate Street, approx 8 mins walk, and several bus routes pass by the school. There are a number of public car parks within easy walking distance. Click here for public transport options.


RGS Worcester is a large school and therefore classrooms are spread out across the campus. Allow sufficient time to move from one area to another in order to get to your class on time. Click here for the site map to find out how to locate your WCAF class. This will also be available in Festival reception. The programme of class times is usually available one month before the festival.
