Parking and safety information

With the exception of Blue Badge holders, all parking for the theatre tent is in a field on Kelson’s Lane, directly opposite the entrance to the playing fields car park on the B3139 (Blackford Road). The postcode is BS28 4BS. There will signs and stewards to direct you from the B3139 into Kelson’s Lane and from the lane into the field.

If you or your passenger are disabled and your car has a blue badge, please contact us in advance. On the day, you will be directed to a reserved space near the tent.

As the Theatre Tent is in a field, please use appropriate foot-wear (no stilettos please).

According to our tent supplier the seating structure they originally ordered is still in transit in the aftermath of the French ferry employees’ strike. The good news is that the performances can go ahead, thanks to an alternative set of raked seats obtained at short notice. You are advised to bring a cushion.
