VERY IMPORTANT TRAVEL INFORMATION – PLEASE READ IN FULLL –
** NO ON SITE PARKING **
We have worked hard with Southend Borough Council planners and the Police to ensure all users the unhindered access to and from Garon Park with the added bonus of massively reducing the carbon footprint on the day in the area!
This event will have NO PARKING on site (with a few exceptions), however we do have lots of alternative transport options FREE OF CHARGE to try and help make your day easier, which will also help us reduce our carbon footprint!
Please do not arrive too early our arrangements commence at 12 noon and there is plenty of room for all so please don’t arrive before 11 am for parking.
