There will be our usual photographer inside to take formal photographs.


Information for Arrivals

Time 6.30 – 7.30pm

Please use the postcode – WN5 0UN for the DW Soccer Dome NOT for the stadium.


  • The approach from both Robin Park and Standish is via SCOT LANE.
  • When you reach the crossroads which has several car garages and a BP petrol station you need to turn into STADIUM WAY.

(This is a right turn if approaching from Robin Park, left if approaching from Standish.)


  • Follow the road round until you pass the Soccer Dome and DW Gym on your right.


  • As the road bends slightly to the left there is a right turn in front of the Boston Stand. Take this right turn and the Marquee entrance is half way down on your left.


  • Students may be dropped off here and you will be directed by staff how to turn/leave the site.

  • There is plenty of free parking by the stadium opposite the cinema and Frankie and Benny’s restaurant.

IMPORTANT – if you use the car parks attached to the stadium, Robin Park arena or JD Gym you will have to pay for this.

  • Please note as mentioned above there will be no opportunities for photographs on arrival.
  • The area will be very busy for the hour during arrivals so please take care and follow the directions of the Marquee staff.
