Rowan Humberstone is set on a residential street sandwiched between Elizabeth Way Bridge and Chesterton Road. There is a residents parking scheme in the street but blue badge parking is fine and there is one disabled parking space outside the venue. At either end of Humberstone Rd there are metered parking places (metered until 5pm 50p per 30 mins). If cycling or walking from town, Rowan is just over the Cutter Ferry Bridge from Midsummer Common and there are cycle racks outside. There are buses every 10 mins along Chesterton Road, a short walk away. See the map below to get your bearings.



Entrance is free although we encourage attendees to make an appropriate donation to help cover our venue and staffing costs. Refreshments will be on sale to please bring cash.

Cambridge Rare Disease Network links patients, professionals and industry working with rare diseases through our annual rare disease summit, educational events and regional patient group development.
