Follow the M1 or A1(M) North until they meet at Junction 48/43. Continue on the A1(M) to junction 45 (Wetherby and Otley). At the roundabout take the first exit and at the second roundabout take the second exit following signs for Collingham and Otley (A659). At the first T-junction turn left (take careful note of this junction as in the reverse direction it is very poorly signposted, the signs simply showing Tadcaster and Boston Spa).

Harewood village is approximately 4 miles along this road; the entrance to Gateways School is on the left immediately before the village. There will be a banner advertising the festival at the school entrance.

Drive west until you meet the A1(M). Follow it North or South as appropriate to Junction 45 then as above.

From the West:

The simplest route from the M62 is to join the M1 North at junction 29/42, then as above.

Follow this for about 7 miles then turn left onto the A61 towards Harrogate. After about 4 miles you will come to some traffic lights with Harewood House on the left. Turn right into The Avenue and in about 200 yards the entrance to Gateways School is on the right.
