Residents Park and Ride
There will be no vehicles movements within the inner market boundary detailed within the map of the inner and outer area. For clarity the hours of no vehicle movements are-
Thursday 2nd December 11:30am to 10:00pm
Friday 3rd December & Saturday 4th December 09:30am to 10:00pm
Sunday 5th December 09:30am to 10:00pm
However when the market is not in operation (outside of the above times) the cordon does not apply and vehicles can move within the inner area of the market (To view a map of the inner and outer area please click here). Because of this we are encouraging residents and guests to move their vehicles outside of the market hours, park outside of the inner market area and walk to their destination, or use the Park and Ride facilities provided.
For local residents within the inner area who would like to utilise the Park and Ride facility need to apply for a pass by filling the form in, by clicking here. The park and ride operates during the following times; Thursday 2nd December 11.30am – 10pm, Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th December 9am – 10pm and Sunday 5th December: 9am – 7:30pm. There is also a dedicated service for people with disabilities, using specially adapted vehicles which also run from the showground.
The pass will then be sent out to the address within the inner area in advance of the market.
