As you will be aware, Looe Music Festival 2018 has, unfortunately, been cancelled. The event has now been replaced with ‘Looe Saves the Day’, which will run over the same weekend from Thursday 20th – Sunday 23rd September.
We are aware many festival goers were planning to travel to Looe throughout the weekend by bus. We’ve been working hard since the announcement of the new festival to ensure additional buses to help as many people as possible get to and from the event.
Every 30 minutes a bus service will cover the following parks; Killigarth Manor (at the end of the road), Seaview, Trelawne Manor, West Waylands, Oaklands Park, Tencreek (at the end of the lane), Looe Bay, Caravan Club, Dovers House & Tregoad. There will also be buses that serve areas further afield and a late bus back to Plymouth each night.
Anyone who has pre-booked seats with Citycoach to get to and from the festival, we will honour these tickets, however you will now need to use service 72 to get to and from the event. A timetable for the 72 service can be downloaded from the right of this page. From Plymouth, the service will depart Royal Parade every 2 hours from 0820 on Friday and Saturday. On the Sunday the 72B will run from Royal Parade at 0955. The return service to Plymouth will depart East Looe Surgery at 0028 on all three days. If you have any questions about your booking please contact Plymouth Citycoach on 01752 264207.
At very short notice we have also managed to put together a shuttle service for the three days. This is based around the existing service 72 and service 73 timetable. This timetable has managed to cover most of the campsites in the Looe area and will operate from Tregoad Park to the east of Looe and Polperro every half an hour. For full timetable information please see the right of this page. Tickets on these services will be £10 pp for a 3-day ticket and £4 for a day ticket (prices not valid between Royal Parade – Tregoad).
If you’re thinking of visiting for the day or haven’t already pre-booked your travel, tickets can also be purchased from the driver on services 72 and 73. Normal fares will apply. For the full service 73 timetable please head to the timetables section of this website. For the special 72 timetable running throughout the event weekend please see to the right of this page.
Remember all our services accept contactless, so you can travel without worrying about cash.
