Getting to The Mill

If you are driving to The Mill, please be aware the car parks directly outside and behind The Mill are three-hour maximum limit. Due to the development of Castle Quay 2, the North and South multi-story car park has been closed. You can find alternative long stay parking at Compton Road (OX16 2PA), Bolton Road and Riverside (OX16 2PA).

Wherever possible we recommend using public transport to get to IWD Banbury. The Mill is conveniently located next door to the main Banbury bus station, and a very short walk from the town centre stops. Banbury train station is a five-minute walk away, via the Oxford Canal pathway or through the Bridge Street entrance to Spiceball Park.


Refreshments will be available throughout the day.

Tea, coffee and cakes will be available on The Mill ground floor in exchange for donations to our chosen charity, Bloody Good Period.

The Mill's bar will be open throughout the event serving a full range of speciality teas, barista-served coffees, and premium soft drinks. Alcoholic drinks can be served in line with licensing laws.

Art of Health will be serving healthy meals from their new base at The Mill kitchen.

Free water refills will be available, so we encourage attendees to bring refillable water bottles to help us cut down on our plastic waste.

Health and safety

There will be a number of qualified First Aiders on site at all times. In the event of an emergency please alert the nearest member of Team IWD Banbury, wearing purple sashes, or head straight to the Information Point on the ground floor.

There are no fire alarm tests scheduled for Friday 6th March. In the event of an alarm please head towards the nearest fire exit. Do not delay or take your belongings with you. Once outside please assembly to the Chamberlain Court car park and follow instructions from The Mill staff.

Photography, video and feedback

We will be capturing images during IWD Banbury. If you attend, we'll assume given permission to use any photography or video taken on the day. We reserve the right to use any event-related social media posts, quotes or feedback you might give in future material; We'll make sure we credit you wherever possible.

All attendees at our ticketed events can use one of our "No photography" stickers to mark their badge or wear in a visible position. Our official photographer will avoid any close shots in such cases, and we will do our very best to avoid publicly sharing photos containing anyone wearing a sticker.
