Public Transport Directions
Large crowds are expected at this event across the weekend.
There is limited parking at the venue – especially between the peak times of 12noon to 2.30pm – so people are strongly encouraged to get to and from the event via a new park and ride service running between Stockton town centre and Preston Park.
There will be free parking in all Council-run car parks in Stockton town centre throughout Saturday and Sunday, including the Dairy Car park. A car parks map can be found on the car parks page of the Council’s website: www.stockton.gov.uk/car-parks
Blue badge parking at the venue is also limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
We’re appealing to motorists to be respectful and not to park in residential streets near Preston Park. We will have enforcement officers in the area to monitor parking and any vehicles parked in a way that causes an obstruction or hazard may be towed.
