Car Parking is available at the following sites; 

  • Racecourse Car Park, entry off St Marks Road (DE21 6AL) – limited spaces

Limited accessible parking is available on-site. To secure your accessible parking space, please call 01332 388 101 in advance of the night. All car parks will be stewarded.

While the Club will always try to accommodate all vehicles visiting the ground, admittance will be on a first come, first served basis. We ask that all visitors try and schedule their arrival at the ground, allowing plenty of time.

Parking can only be pre-booked online until Wednesday 30 October to allow for parking passes to be posted out. Parking passes can be purchased in person at The Pattonair County Ground until 2pm on Sunday 3 November.

There are no cash machines on-site. The nearest cash points are located at the Texaco garage off Pentagon Island. Although the catering units do accept card payments, we advise all ticket-buyers to bring cash on the night, as the fun fair will be cash only.

  • Will reusable cups be in operation?

Reusable cups will be in operation on the night and can be purchased for a refundable deposit of £1. Full details of our reusable cup policy can be found HERE.
