There is lots more in the programme, worth buying one to check all the events.

For those people camping or wanting to get around to venues with heavy equipment, the no. 91 Castle Park bus does a circular route leaving the bus station at 5mins to and 25mins past the hour going up past the surgery on Rievaulx Rd., along by Stakesby School ( main season ticket campsite ) along High Stakesby, down White Leys Road ( Rugby Club), back up Stakesby Road and down past Stakesby School again,past the surgery, along St. Hilda's terrace, down Brunswick St to the bus station.

The no.98 (or no.92) West Cliff circular leaves the station at 9am then at 45mins past each hour up to and including 14.45, then16.00, 17.00, 18.11, 20.10, 22.10. It goes from the bus station, up Chubb Hill, down Stakesby Rd, along Love Lane (opp Rugby Field),past the Metropole, along the North promenade past the Spa, back onto Upgang lane near the Conservative club and back down to the station.

The Yellow Tour bus does an all day 'hop on hop off' ticket which is handy if you have tired legs and small children :D
