The Great British Weather

It is an outdoor event – there is no roof cover and there will be no patio heaters. You are advised to dress warmly as, even on a nice day, the temperature will drop in the evening.

In the case of bad weather, you are advised to pack a waterproof as no large umbrellas are allowed, and umbrellas in general may restrict the views of others so you may be asked to put it down by a steward.

Cash machines

Please note, there are no cash machines within the arena. The nearest is near Carriageworks, however as this is likely to be a popular location on the day, you may want to plan in advance.


The nearest secure parking is available at The Light (accessible via Great George Street).

24 hour, 7 days a week parking is available at Woodhouse Lane car park.

On-street parking is also available. For further information on parking, please see the Leeds City Centre car parking map
