There is a loading bay outside the entrance to the Morris Hall, though do consult the parking signs there for information about usage. For loading/unloading and other qualifying reasons, it may be possible to obtain a dispensation (waiver) that will allow temporary parking, where parking restrictions normally apply, from Shropshire Council. You can find all the details of that scheme and apply online here:
