Information for Travellers
The festival is located in the St. James' Church Hall, in Tower Road, Clacton-on-Sea CO15 1LE. It is between St. James' Church and the Westcliff Theatre which is well signposted. It is about 15 minutes walk from Clacton-on-Sea railway station.
The bus stop opposite the hall is called "Westcliffe Theatre (o/s), on Tower Rd, Clacton [esxjataw]" in the Traveline Journey Planner. Because so many otherwise useful routes start and finish at Pier Avenue (at the time of updating this page) there are very few buses each day that can get you directly from the station to the hall quicker than walking, but there are a few so it is worth checking your route.
