Festival lovers can travel to a popular Hertfordshire festival this year for less, thanks to Greater Anglia.
The local train operator has partnered with Standon Calling to offer a special discounted ticket price package including train travel, a shuttle bus and entry to the event.
The festival, which will take place from 25-28 July, has something for everyone. This year’s headliners include Rag’N’Bone Man, Wolf Alice, Nile Rodgers & CHIC, and special guests Friendly Fires.
Children will be treated to a host of entertainment including Dick & Dom, How To Train Your Dinosaur Live and Mr Bloom & His Band.
There is also a dog show, swimming pool and a sizzling late-night party atmosphere with club night takeovers and acclaimed DJs.
People can save up to £122 with the Greater Anglia package, which includes open return train tickets from selected Greater Anglia stations to Bishops Stortford station, discounted entry to Standon Calling Festival and shuttle buses to and from Bishops Stortford station to the festival site.
For more than 14 years, the Standon Lordship has opened its doors, welcoming guests to the stunning estate in Hertfordshire.
Martin Moran, Greater Anglia’s Commercial and Customer Services Director, said: “We’re very pleased to offer great-value packages, including a discounted ticket price, to this year’s Standon Calling festival.
“We’ve made it even easier for people to enjoy this unmissable festival, with direct trains from London to the Hertfordshire countryside in less than an hour. Tickets include rail travel, transfers to the festival site and entry to the event, which means people can enjoy travelling without the stress of driving, and save money. Alternatively, passengers can purchase just the travel element.
“We are always happy to support local events wherever possible and practical, and we would encourage people to book in advance.”
A spokesperson for Standon Calling said: “We’re thrilled to partner with Greater Anglia to provide this affordable and eco-friendly ticket, train and shuttle package. It’s important to us that our customers have the best experience at Standon Calling, and that includes the journey there and back. We want to incentivise our attendees to choose greener travel options and so we’re proud to make the greener option the cheaper by offering discounted weekend tickets as part of the Greater Anglia bundle. All aboard the Standon Express!”
