Car Parking

Tobacco Factory Theatres does not have its own car park. There is an Aldi supermarket next door, but if you choose to use its car park, please be aware of the following:

Before 7pm ALDI permits use of its car park for a maximum of 1 1/2 hours. This is enforced very strictly, and you will be fined even if you stay just a minute over 1 1/2 hours. Similarly, even if you arrive 1 minute before 7pm, you will still be fined if you stay there for longer than 1 1/2 hours.

Before 7pm ALDI operates a ‘no return within 4 hours’ policy. This means that you are not able to park there before 7pm and then drive out, return and re-park (unless, of course, 4 hours have elapsed).

Between 7pm and 7am parking is unrestricted.

Failure to comply with ALDI’s regulations will almost certainly land you a £70 fine; the car park’s monitoring system is electronic and misses nothing. There are instances however, when fines are sent in error. Should this happen to you, and you are certain that you entered the Aldi car park after 7pm, please get in touch with the theatre as soon as possible prior to paying the fine and we may be able to contact Aldi on your behalf. You can contact us on 0117 9020344 or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). If you are able to send us a copy of the letter received by email, post or in person, we may be able to rescind the fine.

There is also on street parking in the area surrounding Tobacco Factory Theatres. Please remember that you leave valuables in your car at your own risk.

Tobacco Factory Theatres is as good an argument as I've ever seen for the importance of the arts in the regeneration of a particular area.
