51st State Festival 2016 takes place at Trent Park in North London, a short walk away from Cockfosters tube station (Piccadilly Line).
We’re extremely pleased to be bringing 51st State Festival to the beautiful. green surroundings of North London’s Trent Park. Trent Park has a very special feel, with a taste of the countryside just 20 minutes North of King’s Cross on the Piccadilly Line. Our goal is to respect the park and the local residents at all times.
We ask all customers to show the local area and residents the same respect by arriving and leaving the event quietly and politely, leaving any litter in the bins provided or taking it with you when you depart.
Trent Park is easy to reach on the tube. For the latest travel updates please use the TFL Journey Planner before you depart on the day:
