Road Closures across the weekend; please use public transport
To keep the village moving and visitors safe there are road closures in place across the centre of the village.
Please see the full details and share with friends and family who might be visiting.
It is also World Car-Free day on Sunday 22nd September, and parking in the village is always extremely limited, so please use public transport wherever you can.
Leave no trace
We are incredibly lucky to have the World Heritage Site of Saltaire as our home. Please help us to keep the village spick and span – use the bins where provided and please take your recycling home.
Pound per person: help us secure the Festival for future years
We need to raise around £60,000 each year to sustain the programme of free events that we have. Please be generous when you see a volunteer shaking a bucket or you can donate to us online.
Have a great time and tell us about it!
We love seeing your posts and pics so do share your experiences across the weekend on social media using #saltfest19
And a MASSIVE thank you…
… to all our volunteers and the funders, sponsors and supporters who have helped make this such an amazing festival – and to you for coming along and your continued support.
