Watermans has installed Pay and Display machines in its car-park. The charges are in operation since February 4th and the theatre has introduced a special rate for Friends.

A private firm has been brought in to run the car park and provide security.

"This will make it easier for our customers to find a parking space, help us to keep the car-park safer and clean and tidy and remove cars that have been abandoned more quickly," said Watermans.

Payment will be by cash in the machine or by phone. Machines will be located on both of the lower parking levels, but not on the top level. Charges are as follows:

  • 1st hour free
  • Every subsequent hour £1.
  • Maximum in day £5 (7am - 7pm)                             
  • Overnight parking £3 (7pm - 7am)
  • Blue Badge holders park for free if they park in one of the designated spaces and show their badge
  • Motorcycles are free if parked off the car-park or in one of the designated areas
  • FRIENDS will be able to buy a permit, valid for the duration of their FRIENDS membership for £10 from Watermans Box Office. This means that new FRIENDS will be entitled to a permit that will last a year. Existing FRIENDS will be entitled to a permit valid until their next renewal date.

Permits must be collected in person and will be limited to one per household. The Pay & Display will apply to the whole car-park including the upper roadside level. People who do not show a valid car parking ticket, or who are not registered as having paid by phone or who do not display a valid permit, run the risk of receiving a parking fine (£90, reduced to £50 if paid quickly).
