Slam Dunk North car park is located off a junction of the M1 and A63. 

For the Sat Nav location of the entrance to the car park please search for 'Temple Newsam Park - Event Road' as your destination and then follow yellow festival signage once near the festival site.


As we are a 1-day event the car park will close shortly after the festival has finished so cars will not be able to be left overnight. The car park will open at 9am.  Driving / Car Share is the most direct route to get to Slam Dunk North due to the location directly off the M1. We advise customers to buy tickets in advance from HERE.
