Getting to the event
Unfortunately there is no public parking available at the event due to space restrictions and roads around the castle will be closed for crowd safety. Therefore please walk or use public transport wherever possible. A park and ride will be available from Memorial Park in Coventry.
If you still wish to drive, please allow plenty of time as it will be difficult to find parking close by. Public car parks in the town will be full early in the day. If using on-street parking, you may need to park a reasonable walk from the entrance. Please ensure you park considerately and note that police and parking enforcement officers will be active in the town on the evening.
