"Please consider all other options before driving to Fireworks where ever possible.

"We have Park and Walk routes signposted from Kilwinning Railway Station (via Claremont Crescent) and Kilwinning Town Centre parking (via college and Academy) plus the college car park.

"All of the above options means you are not caught in traffic as much on arrival but especially on departure with the school car park reporting long delays to enter and leave with an hour to clear the site not being unusual.

"Please follow the signage and stewards will help. Please do plan to arrive early."
