Disabled badge holders will be issued their car parking pass (compliments of the event organisers) from This Morning Live organisers prior to the event.
The parking application form is now available. If you have not filled in a Disabled Parking Application by 4pm on 11th May 2018, you will need to show your proof of ticket purchase upon arriving at the car park, along with proof of being a disabled badge holder.
