How do I get there?

There are two main routes to the studio from the city centre: Cab and Bus. If you’re getting a cab, the street address is:

ESL UK,
Unit 2, Saffron Way
Leicester,
LE2 6UP

If you’re getting a bus, head to Humberstone Gate station (LE1 1WB) and take an 88 or an 88A towards Eyres Monsell. On the 88 route, you should disembark at the Saffron Way stop (LE2 6UL), which is just opposite Saffron Way where the studio is located. On the 88A route, you should disembark at The Fairway stop (LE2 6SA). From there it is a short walk to the studio. Please note: on both routes, you will need to request that the bus stop, it will not stop automatically!


What do I need to bring?

We’ll provide networked power and the internet, as well as wifi. We’ll also be providing a limited number of free-to-play setups if you haven’t got a laptop, tablet or mobile to play on. You just need to bring yourself, your friends and if you have a device you prefer to play on, bring that too!


Will there be food and drinks?

On top of the stocked to bursting legendary ESL Studio 1 bar - with all the drinks and snacks you could dream of - we’ll also be cooking up some surprises for those with the biggest appetites.
