Parking for disabled patrons

Contact doesn’t have a car park, but we do invite our audience to use The University of Manchester car park just next to our building. 

Access to the car park is via Denmark St off Oxford Rd. Turn right on to Acomb St and right at end (onto Dilworth St), over the humps to the car park entrance two hundred meters up on the left. 

There are four disabled parking spaces in The University of Manchester car park next to us, 16 meters from the main entrance.  Blue Badge spaces are available to the public from 4pm.

This car park is often very busy which has caused customers to be late for or miss shows at Contact. The car park does not belong to Contact. It is owned and operated by University of Manchester, therefore Contact does not have any control over the availability of spaces or any of its operations.
