Due to limited on-street car parking, a spectator car park site has been made available. The car park is situated on Court Royal Road and will be signposted by road diversion signs. The car park is a 15 minute walk away from the event.

A donation to the Town Council’s nominated charity would be appreciated.

Disabled parking

A small number of disabled parking spaces have been made available at the Taylor Wimpey offices on the Younghayes roundabout.

  • Name of person with disability.
  • Blue Badge number.
  • Name of carer/assistant.
  • Vehicle registration number.
  • Vehicle make and model.
