Working with life, working with death.....looking at what being alive is from the buddhist point of view and how this illuminates the death process..

The venue Bollington Arts Centre, Wellington Road, Bollington, SK10 5JR

Bollington is a very long village. Most people will approach it from the A523 Silk Road turning onto the B5090 which goes through the village. Continue on this road until you reach a Co-op store on the left followed by a bridge over the road. Immediately beyond the bridge, on the left, is a drive winding up a hill to the Arts Centre. There is a separate footpath with steps leading up to the Centre

Parking: This is very limited at the top of the drive and we wish to reserve it for people with mobility problems so we would urge you to park elsewhere . Apart from some areas of yellow lines parking is allowed on the main road at the bottom of the drive, a good area may be further along the road past the Dog and Partridge pub. Alternatively you could turn first left after the Centre (just before the Dog and Partridge pub) onto Adlington Road. A little way along there are two free car parks plus roadside parking. A few cars could also park between the trees at the side of the drive- though the spaces at the bottom belong to the Day Nursery.

Accessibility: The drive up to the Centre from the road is a steady hill and the footpath up consists of 32 steps. If you believe it will be a problem for you to manage this by foot please let us know and we will do our best to reserve a parking space for you at the top of the drive.

Public Transport
If you would like assistance getting from the station please let us know the time of your arrival and also your mobile number. We will attempt to help with transport either by putting you in contact with others so you can arrange to share a taxi or by offering a lift if there are sufficient drivers available. Similarly if you are coming by car and could offer a lift from the station please also let us know -with your mobile number if possible.

Buses: There is a bus stop at the bottom of the drive to Bollington Arts Centre with a regular service from Macclesfield – No 10 and 10A. Bus number 392 also provides a service from Macc going on to Poynton, Hazel Grove and (slowly) to Stockport

Registration: on Friday is from 9.15 am
