Important update on car parking from Nottingham City Council and the organisers

Due to this winter’s exceptional rainfall, the planned car parking area for athletes and spectators at Wollaton Park is waterlogged and we are unable to use it for the event.

Wollaton Park is a very popular park. With very limited car parking available on site due to waterlogged ground conditions, all athletes and spectators are required to park in Nottingham city centre and take the bus to Wollaton. Vehicle gates to the park will be closed when car parking capacity has been reached, with only accredited vehicles given access.

Please do not park on local residential streets, these are restricted to residents only. Parking enforcement will be working in the area on Saturday, to avoid a fixed penalty notice, please travel to the event
