Train The venues are a 20 minute walk from Liverpool Lime Street station.
Car The venue is easily accessible, though requires some city-centre driving. There is limited on-site parking, which we'll reserve for groups travelling together, crew bringing equipment, and those with disabilities. E-mail to request a space.
Megabus Tickets on online around 30th April from Megabus UK, travelling from Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Leicester, London, and Manchester (plus fucking Coventry).
Air For those who are flying in, Liverpool John Lennon is your nearest airport, and links easily to the city centre. Flying to Manchester may also be a sensible option.
