On-site parking will be free for Enjoy Rugby Festival goers and Fanzone visitors, Rugby Borough Council has announced.

The John Barford car park, accessible via James Street, will be free every day from now until November 6, after 12 noon.

Opening hours have also been extended to include Sunday opening, when parking will be £1 in the mornings and free after 12 noon.

The car park will remain open until one hour after the end of the last event. Locking up will be carried out under the direction of the festival team, making sure that all festival goers and visitors to the Fanzone will have plenty of time to get back to their vehicles at the end of the night.

The Rugby Village and Fanzone is being held on the Old Market Place adjacent to the John Barford car park, with entry from Castle Street.

Car park users should leave the car park via Level Two for the Rugby Village and Fanzone site, and via Level One for James Street.
