How to get to Swingamajig Festival 2023...
We advise people who are coming from Birmingham to take public transport, cycle, or taxi if possible. For those coming from further afield, as it is a Sunday there is plenty of free on the street parking available in the vicinity of the Botanical Gardens. Please check road signs before leaving your vehicle. Please do not park in the Gardens car park - they have camera's in action and may send you a parking ticket. Swingamajig accepts no liability for parking fines from the Botanical Gardens carpark.
There is parking on site for disabled drivers displaying a blue badge. These are limited however and are on a first come first served basis. When you arrive please speak to our staff and fill in your registration in the correct machine or you may get a parking ticket. Swingamajig accepts no liability for parking fines from the Botanical Gardens carpark.
Please see this map for where all the single yellow lines are in the vicinity of the Gardens:
Black Cabs – the only vehicles licensed to pick you up without pre-booking first. They tend to be a little more expensive but can always be found around the city centre.
Private hire/mini cab – there are plenty around, we use are A2B Radio cars 0121 744 1111 and they are very reasonable.
Uber and Bolt both operate in Birmingham and as long as you avoid surge pricing it is very reasonable.
Getting home from the festival if you are ordering your own taxi, please avoid ordering a taxi to the gardens to avoid traffic delays. Walk out onto Westbourne Road and from there you will find it much easier to find your taxi/continue your onward journey.
We will be running a fixed price taxi rank sending cars to the afterparty. There will be a lot of people trying to leave the site between 23:00 and 23:30 so please factor this into your plans.
The number 1 bus goes almost to the Botanical Gardens but Five Ways (which is a 10 mins walk) is a major route where you will find busses coming in from all over Birmingham.
Those coming by Train or Coach
The closest station is Five Ways Station which is a 15 min walk from the festival or a 3min cab
If you get off at New Street it is a 10min cab ride
The coach station is a 10-15min cab ride from the festival
The area around the gardens is lovely and we encourage anyone coming locally to walk or cycle. There is not a lot of bike rack spaces but there are some spaces on the left hand side of the car park as you come in. If you need help finding somewhere suitable for your bike then just let us know.
