Chiltern Railways to provide service for Global gathering

Chiltern Railways is adding train carriages for music lovers heading to Global Gathering on 27 and 28 July. The festival is taking place at Long Marston Airfield in Warwickshire.

There will be additional carriages on the 0910, 1040, 1240 and 1510 services from London Marylebone to Stratford-Upon-Avon on both days.

A shuttle train service will also run from Leamington Spa to Stratford-Upon-Avon at 1132, 1332, 1532 and 1727 for festival goers.

The annual dance festival, which is in its twelfth year, has taken place in countries from as far afield as Australia to Ukraine, attracting music lovers from across the globe.

Malcolm Holmes, General Manager Mainline at Chiltern Railways said: “As Global Gathering is one of the major music events of the year and many visitors will be travelling by train, we have increased the number of carriages on our trains to Stratford-Upon-Avon.  However, we do advise that passengers allow plenty of time for their journey particularly on Friday when London 2012 opens. We hope that the rain holds off for what will no doubt be a fantastic weekend of live music.”
