Parking During the Wheee! Free Family Weekend in the Park

Due to the logistical requirements of the festival weekend, Lakeside's oval car park will be closed (from Midnight Friday 3 June , reopening Monday 6 June) and the parking strip outside the DH Lawrence Pavilion will be reserved for blue badge holders only.

Parking will be free at any other car park on University Park Campus.

If you're coming by public transport, Nottingham City Transport are offering a discount on their group rider for May half term and the Tram are offering a 5 for £5 group ticket. You can also get a £2 per person return on the tram if you are coming to a ticketed event at Lakeside – just make sure you have your event ticket with you when you travel.
