Where can I park?
Limited paid parking is available at Springbridge Road and Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre car parks, as well as behind Ealing Town Hall after 5pm weekdays and all day at weekends. However where at all possible we encourage visitors to use public transport.
I'm disabled, are there any special parking arrangements for me?
Unfortunately not, but there are designated disabled bays by the small gate to the park on Mattock lane, you can also use either residents bays or pay & display bays on Mattock lane. Blue Badge must be displayed.
What other information is there for disabled people?
We advise disabled customers to book their ticket by phone rather than by the internet so that you can be allocated an appropriate seat. We also offer a 2 for 1 ticket scheme whereby disabled customers can bring a PA or friend to the event for free (booking and transaction fees will apply). Again, you'll need to book your ticket by phone so that you can take part in this scheme.
The event is held in a park so although there are pathways into the park, the event itself takes place on the grass. Disabled toilet facilities are provided at the event. Guide dogs can remain seated next to the customer. There is no infra red headset or loop hearing system in place in the auditorium.
