King Edwards Aston School Car Park Closed
Villa v QPR. Sat 3rd March
Based on the road conditions in the area and conditions on site, with more snow expected in B’ham we are NOT opening the school for Permit Holders or Pay on the Gate parking on Sat 3rd March.
We anticipate the conditions at school and driving on the surrounding roads will continue to be very poor on Saturday, Match day and the safety of our volunteer parents and the supporters is paramount
We appreciate the game will go ahead and sincerely apologise that our decision not to open will cause travel difficulties to our permit holders and others who still want to attend but we suspect the surrounding streets will quickly become grid locked, as it was on Thursday evening and the school site which is closed today will remain extremely icy.
We will confirm our decision by e mail/text to all Permit Holders later today and also post on the school website.
Aston Villa Match Day Secure Site Parking
King Edwards VI Aston School is situated just a short walk across Aston Park from the Aston Villa Football Club ground, Trinity Road. We have strong ties with the club and for each home game we open the School playgrounds for ‘Match Day Parking’.We are one of the most secure car-parking sites for the football ground, with the grounds locked and patrolled during the match. We have nearly one hundred parking permit holders who pay per season to park with us. We then supplement this with up to 100 additional “pay and park” cars for home and visiting supporters.
How to find us
Follow our KEVI Aston Parents’ Association sign from the traffic lights on Victoria Rd/Upper Sutton St, turn right into Albert St, past school and left into Upper Thomas St to the school’s main gate.
Post Code: B6 6DJ.
Match Day Parking Costs
We charge £6 per car and £10 per van or minibus on the gate. Parking for other events such as Music Concerts at the Villa is provided too but will be charged at a higher rate.
We open the main gate on Upper Thomas St approximately three hours before kick off. We are very close to Villa Park, it is just a short 10 minute walk down to ground.
We do not pre-book one off parking spaces and we have experienced some very busy matches recently so please be parked at least an hour before the kick off to be confident of a space.
We do operate an prepaid, season, parking permit scheme, so later on there may appear to be lots of spaces left but they are pretty much all pre paid permit spaces.
Home and Away Fans are both welcome and we enjoy a family atmosphere on site whatever the weather!
Gate Close One Hour after Final Whistle. Please be back to collect your car within one hour of the final whistle so our parent volunteer stewards can lock up and go home.
Car are directed off site via the main gate and via the bottom gate on Frederick Rd at the end of the match.
There are no public toilet facilities or refreshments provided on site.
Winter Weather Warnings
If a match goes ahead when it snows we endeavour to have the car park clear for parking. Follow advice on the main Aston Villa website.
