We want the LCOY to be as accessible and inclusive as possible. All our funding and revenue from ticket sales will go to paying for the LCOY itself. If you find you’re unable to attend due to the cost of travel, accommodation or the ticket please do get in touch with us at and we can see what we can do to help you to take part.

Turn right out of the station and walk underneath the railway bridge. The Manchester campus is to your right.

Head to Fairfield Street taxi ranks and take the 147 bus to Oxford Road (runs every 10 minutes). You can also walk, which takes 10-15 minutes.

Jump on the Metroshuttle service 2 (green) which picks up outside Victoria station every 10 mins. Get off at Oxford Road station and The Union is a short walk from there.
