Gigs at the LCR

Please park in the Main Car Park, a short 2-minute walk from the LCR. Parking for gigs is free of charge: at the entry barrier please press the green button to take a token. When you leave, take your car straight to the exit barrier and insert your token at the barrier for exit.


Dropping off and picking up

The area directly outside the LCR is usually cordoned off on gig nights for pedestrian safety so please use the Main Car Park for dropping off and picking up. Take a token on entry and insert your token at the exit barrier when you leave. There is no need to make payment.


Earlham Park Events

There is no parking on site for Earlham Park events directly through the university. It is up to the event organiser to prebook any parking on site and arrange for use.
