Parking at the venue is limited as it is a residential area. The dancers will be able to park in the school grounds.
Patrons to the show should note the following:-
  1. Parking in Marlow Rd is limited, and it will be most helpful if you drive from Gibson Rd up Abingdon Rd and then come down Marlow Rd so that it is treated as a one way road – this will help to avoid congestion.
  2. There is some parking in Sheerness Road and there is a gate that can be opened to allow for patrons to enter, but it will be closed when the performance begins for security reasons.
  3. There is plenty of parking below the station in Kenilworth Avenue which has a security guard.
 PLEASE bring cushions as although it is a beautiful venue the chairs are very hard!
