The event takes place each year at Glyndwr University, Mold Road, Wrexham, LL11 2AW.

If you are travelling by road: Exit Junction 15 off the M56 where it joins the M53 to Chester/Wrexham. From the M53, continue along the A55 , and take the exit signposted A483 Wrexham . Glyndwr University is located off Junction 5 of the A483 signposted Wrexham/ Mold. The university does have free parking on-site, but it is advisable people arrive early to secure a free space as it does fill up quickly and that’s from my personal experience.

There are alternative parking areas on shopping parks situated five minutes walk from the venue, so if you park off campus and the weather is bad, make sure you have good winter coats to keep dry.

Travelling by train! Then the nearest railway stations are:

Wrexham General: 5 minutes walk from Glyndwr University.

Wrexham Central: 10 minutes walk from Glyndwr University.

Chester: about 20 minutes away by car/taxi.
