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 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 planning to travel by tram you can get a £2 per person return if you are coming to a ticketed event at Lakeside – just make sure you have your event ticket with you when you travel.
