Please note: parking on campus is limited during half-term. The easiest way to get to Lakeside Arts is to use the Toton Lane/Hucknall tram line and get off at the University of Nottingham stop.
Additional free parking will be available for Wheee! visitors at the University Park West Entrance, in the field behind Florence Boot Hall. This site is a pleasant 15 minute walk from Lakeside around the lake, so if you park here, please allow extra time to reach us.
