If you are attending the Saturday afternoon sessions then please be advised that there is a football match on at the iPro Stadium, which is next door to Derby Arena. This means that parking at Derby Arena will either be limited or unavailable. Alternative parking will be available at Alvaston Park, which is 10 minute walk away from the Arena. This car parking is priced at £3.50 per car. Alvaston Park can be accessed from London Road (A6), for directions use DE24 8QQ. For driving instruction from the Arena to Alvaston park and walking instruction from Alvaston park back to Derby Arena see the download below.
PLEASE NOTE for session 3 (Saturday evening), parking will not be available at the Derby Arena until 5:45pm, due to the DCFC football match taking place at the iPro Stadium next door, please also be aware that there will be traffic congestion in and around Derby Arena from 4.45 to 5.30pm.
There is limited disabled parking at the Arena (subject to availability) which is due to the high number of people attending the Revolution Series and the Derby County home game taking place at the iPro Stadium.
