Getting Here

We are located on the edge of the City Centre so we are within 15 minutes walking distance of the Bus Station and the Train Station.

Car Parking

There is very limited car parking at the venue itself, however there is the little Roodee Car Park very near by, as well as other parking around the city centre.
