    We booked ours a couple of weeks ago and it was £17.50, luckily b/c I drive a 7 seater S Max the ladies I am driving there have split the ££ between them all. I heard that they were saying anyone parking on nearby roads would be clamped which I thought was a bit harsh, but probably just my luck!! Give them a ring and see if you can still book it.

    When we went to see The Specials, we just parked at the Tesco's car park, otherwise we end up parking at hubby's workplace and have a good 15/20 minute walk to the stadium

    I'm not sure what we're doing yet, I'll let you know as soon as I do Nat

    Seriously, I wouldn't risk just parking on the road in 'the zone'. The ticket wardens were out in force when Cov City were in the FA Cup 1/4 finals (think that's how far they got) which I thought was a shame. I can imagine them doing the same for this. They may have wardens on the gate at the tesco car park - think the official rule will be you need to spend £25 to stay there longer than 2 hours.

    We are hoping to walk - it's probably just over a mile from us (we are just outside the restricted area which is just a well as its such a faf on event days as you need parking permit so visitors can park outside your house!)

    Just hope the weather improves

    Who/What are you going to see Natalie?

    When we went there the parking & traffic was horrendous, however we also managed to park at Tesco, thats where they were sending everyone in the end, there was'nt any parking left anywhere else.

    Pleased to read you got it sorted, have a great time.

    Sharon

    Glad you've got it sorted Nat, we still haven't sorted ourselves out. I'm sure we'll end up parking at Paul's work, so I really hope it doesn't rain for that walk round :)
