There is no car park at the Octagon, but it is possible to park cars on the nearby roads.

There is parking available in St Peter's Car Park opposite the cinema, which is just around the corner from Dormer Hall. This costs £1-00 for the evening, is staffed and therefore secure, and even has a pedestrian gate that leads straight into the precinct of the Society's venue. In addition parking here avoids the nerve-racking business of getting into and out of what is usually an overcrowded Dormer Hall forecourt.
