Leading up to the event, this page will be kept updated with any additional information
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Old Cathedral ruins Coventry – postcode CV1 5FB
Parking – Click here to go to the City Council website for local car park information. There is none at the site. (Although we understand there may be some spaces, available on the usual ‘first come’ basis, for Blue Badge holders, on roads close to The Cathedral).
Park and Ride – Buses stop adjacent to the Cathedral. Click here for information.
Train – The main railway station is about 15 minutes walk away.
Sports Park, Meriden – by the Village Green, postcode CV7 7RU
Parking – due to limited spaces at the Sports Park, subject to availability, we anticipate only those with a Blue Badge will be permitted to park in the small car-park there.
70 spaces – Heart of England Club, Berkswell Road, CV7 7LB – A few minutes walk away – we have obtained kind permission for you to use the Club car park.
There is also a fair amount of unrestricted parking on the B4104 Main Road, through the village and in some side roads – although we ask that care is taken so as not to obstruct or inconvenience residents and other road users.
AN EASY OPTION – Bus There is a regular (every 20 minutes) and convenient X1 bus service from Coventry to Birmingham (and return), calling at Meriden, very near to the Sports Park, from Coventry’s Pool Meadow Bus Station, CV1 5AD, just a few minutes walk from the Cathedral – the journey takes 28 minutes.
You do not need to bring your Eventbrite tickets on the day – but signing up really helps our planning to give us an idea of how many will attend and to enable us to send you any updates.
Stewards will be on hand from 30 minutes prior to each event and at the entrances will hand out information sheets that you will need,
The events are planned to be for about one hour each, although we are now allowing for the Meriden event to finish nearer 3.45 pm ( 1 hour 15 minutes)
Both events are in the open air and do not offer any shelter from inclement weather, so do come prepared with umbrellas if appropriate! The Meriden event is on grass.
There is no seating provided, but you may wish to consider bringing a fold-up chair if standing for longer periods is difficult
Toilets, including for those with disabilities, at Coventry will be in the adjacent New Cathedral and at Meriden, within the on-site sports pavilion.
Refreshments: None are provided at the venues, but both sites have local shops very nearby.
There is no charge for attending, but we will give an opportunity for a free-will offering at the events to cover our costs for the day. CTNTP does not receive any funding and we are stepping out in faith with this. We will have costs of around £1500 to cover.
If you are so led, this page gives details of how to make a donation in advance. Thank you so much.
How can I contact CTNTP with any questions?
