A temporary catering van will provide hot and cold food and drinks whilst the competition is taking place.


For cycling, spectating is standing only. Seating will be provided for powerlifting on school hall seats.

Accessible access to the powerlifting is via the main school entrance rather than the side entrance for general spectators. Volunteers at the welcome desk will be on hand to escort. Access to the cycle track is via the lift inside the sports centre adjacent to the stair case. Access is then via a trakway walkway to the side of the field of play. This trakway may be difficult for some motorised accessible vehicles so please ask a volunteer for assistance if necessary

Other Tips:

Cycling spectators are welcome to use the indoor dining areas inside the school and outside the powerlifting venue to sit and eat or have a break. Access to powerlifting for people unable to use stairs is through the main entrance to the school and via a lift. Please ask a volunteer to show you where to go.

The Forge Valley Community School will be home to both cycling and powerlifting during the three days of competition.

There will be an Honoured Guest Desk just inside the entrance of the venue and the hosts will be able to direct you to the spectator areas.

Awards ceremonies will take place for cycling on Thursday and Friday at the English Institute of Sport – Sheffield (EISS) in the main arena.

The cycling will take place outside, so clothing and footwear should be weather appropriate and sun cream may be advisable as the events take place during the day.

Closing ceremonies will take place at the venue between 5pm – 6pm on Friday
