Our show venues - Newcastle

St Bartholomew's Church Hall, 3 Station Road, Benton, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE12 8AN.
Parking is available on the northern side of the church, signposted Percy Hedley School, NE12 8YY.
For pedestrians (or those unable to manage the steep path from the carpark) there are two gates off Station Road.

Google Streetview photo of the carpark, which has a postcode of NE12 8YY. Direct access to the hall is up the steep tarmac path on the left. While there is a rail giving support to walkers who need it, this is likely too steep for people in manual wheelchairs.
The steep but direct path from hall to the carpark.

Where you're aiming for; the hall door. There's some seating on the left while the corridor has a right turn to take you into the building proper.
Toilets are located in this vestibule area (disabled on the left, men and women both through another door on the right), with the hall ahead.
