LOCATION INFORMATION

Location: The University of Northampton, University Drive, Northampton, NN1 5PH. (Sat Nav doesn't work, the suggestion is putting Nunn Mills Road, Northampton, into your Sat Nav)

Parking: The new University campus is very security conscious and it is very difficult to gain access, so it has been suggested that people park nearby. The obvious location is the Bedford Road car park just east of the Nunn Mills Road. Alternatively, Morrison's Car Park (be aware of the parking time limit) and the Multi-Storey near the Theatre both are 5-10min work from the venue. Check on google maps before visiting.
