If you’re coming by car, Thame’s a short drive from the M40.
Leave the motorway at junction 6 signposted Thame/Watlington/Princes Risborough. If coming from the London direction turn right onto the B4009 or if coming from the Oxford direction turn left, then take the first left onto the A40. Continue on the A40 and turn right onto the B4012 signposted Thame and continue until you see signs for the Thame Food Festival. Please ONLY USE the Visitor Parking Entrance. The other one is only for Traders and you’ll be asked to turn around – which can cause traffic issues.
There is unlimited parking at The Show Ground which is FREE
The Postcode is: OX9 3JL, Thame.
Thanks to our brilliant sponsors Aylesbury Waterside Theatre, there will be a FREE shuttle bus running every half an hour from the Town hall bus stop in the town centre to the Showground.
Thame is easy to reach by train, on the fast Birmingham to London Marylebone line. The nearest station is Haddenham & Thame Parkway. The 280 bus runs every 20 minutes into town from here and takes about 10 minutes. You can then cross the road and hop on the shuttle bus or alight at the Aylesbury Road bus stop and take the short walk to the Showground. There’s also a taxi rank at the station.
We suggest that you bring picnic blankets and fold up chairs with you for the day – we will have areas of straw bales for sitting on and chilling out, but it’s always nice to bring your own blankets too!
As we are having our Fun Family Dog Show this year, dogs are of course very welcome.
However, we do ask that they remain on their leads at all times, and that you pick up their poop! There will be bins available especially for this use in the DOG SHOW AREA ONLY.
Any dogs found fouling and their poop not picked up by their owners will have to leave.
