Leave the A38 (Bromsgrove Eastern bypass) at the Brewer's Fayre roundabout onto Slideslow Drive.
You will then see Artrix in front of you (grey cube building). Follow the road, crossing straight ahead at another mini roundabout and then turn right into the main car park. We are very close to Bromsgrove Fire and Police Station which you will see on your right-hand side as you drive towards Artrix.
Please note: There is another car park at the end of School Drive which is only available to staff and artists performing at the venue. If you arrive at this car park by mistake, turn around and go back up School Drive towards the Dolphin Centre. Turn left and go back up the hill along Stratford Road. When you get to the roundabout at the end of the road, take the first exit onto the A38 towards Birmingham M5 North/M42. Then turn left at the Brewer's Fayre roundabout and follow the directions as above.
