Cricket is taking place at Edgbaston Cricket Ground, close to Martineau Gardens on Saturday 21 September 2019.  You can park your car in the Martineau Gardens car park (subject to availability) for £15, we have space for 24 cars max. (On-line advance ticket sales have now ended.)

Your car is parked at your own risk. The gates will be locked or staffed, and staff will be on site throughout the match. If you wish to collect your car, before the end of the match, please phone 0121 440 7430 when you are outside the Gardens and we’ll unlock the gates.

At the end of play, the gates will be open for half an hour. Our staff will need to go home, so if you arrive later than this, you risk your car being locked in until 9.30am on the following morning, or an additional £20 charge will be charged. (The Gardens will be extremely busy on Sun 22 September, with the Autumn Event, so this is not recommended.)

Thank you for choosing to park here.
