Mold is quick and easy to access from all over the country. Less than an hour from Manchester or Bangor by car.
The roads surrounding the theatre have prominent brown and white signs making us very easy to find. Just up the road from Flintshire’s County Council’s Head Offices and the Law Court (which are also well marked).
There is a bus stop outside the theatre on the routes from Mold, Flint and Chester. Our nearest train stations are Flint (5 miles), Chester (11 miles) and Buckley (5 miles). There are cycle racks outside the theatre.
This year you can use public transport without missing the last band! A coach service between the festival and Chester train station can be booked at the same time as your tickets. Please see the Box Office for details.
From the North Wales coast, take the A55 towards Chester, take the exit signed Flint and turn right towards Mold. Go through the villages of Northop and Sychdyn, and look for a well signposted right hand turn into the theatre!
From Chester or North West England, take signs for North Wales and Conway. From the A55, filter left onto the A494 for Mold. As you approach the town, there are well signposted signs to the theatre on your right.
From other directions, go through Mold and take the A494 Queensferry road. The theatre is signposted on the left just after you leave the town.
To use your satnav, Interesting Point have provided location files for the festival, and various places around the town. Please choose the files for your device: Garmin, Navman or TomTom.
There is a large undercover car park operated by Flintshire County Council at the front of the building with tunnel access direct to the theatre foyer. The tunnel entrance has steps so is not suitable for those with access needs. Recently the council has introduced charges to use the car park however it is only £1.50 for a full day, 50p for 2 hours and is pay and display Monday to Saturday from 8am to 5pm. We ask for people to avoid parking outside the front of the building to ensure disabled access and for emergency service access.
There are several taxi companies in the Mold area, we would always recommend pre-booking as they can get very busy.
Call Pied Bull Executive Travel on 07739 545348 to reserve your car! Other taxi firms are listed in the festival programme.
