At weekends there is frequently engineering work with a bus replacement service, for the latest information at Great Anglia –http://www.abelliogreateranglia.co.uk/travel-information/service-alterations – but as far as we can see there is nothing planned for the beer festival weekend.

By Bus

Billericay is served by several bus routes operated by First. Many of them stop at the station so follow the same directions as above. Some stop in the High Street and you can turn left out of the High Street over the footbridge by the Rail Station into Radford Way, again follow same directions as above.

A No.12 bus Operated by Stephensons of Essex operates between the Rail Station stand A to Arlington way which is literally a 2min walk from the Centre. But unfortunately the Last bus from the Station is 18.07 and 18:13 to the Station and there is no service on a Sunday. so we suggest outside the running of the Bus Route, you will either have to walk or call a Cab as above

For details for 100/100x/140/251/256/561/562 services use First Group Journey Planner at http://www.firstgroup.com/ukbus/essex/journey_planning/
