This year’s conference will take place within the Stage@Leeds on the University of Leeds campus, on Thursday 8th September.
The iconic Parkinson building, on Woodhouse Lane, is the main entrance to the University campus. The Stage@Leeds is situated behind the University Union’s building. The recommended route is to walk through the arches to the left of the Parkinson Building, head left away from the redbrick buildings towards the University’s Union building. Take the path to the left of the Union building across a footpath bridge and the Stage@Leeds will be on your right.
Getting to the University
Travelling by train: Leeds Train station links regularly to all major UK cities. You can get from the station to the campus on foot, by taxi or by bus. A taxi ride will take about 10 minutes, costing approximately £5.
From the train station on foot: The University campus is a 20 minute walk from the train station. The map below will help you find our way. Leave the station through the exit facing the main concourse. Turn left past the bus stops and walk down towards City Square. Keeping City Square on your left, walk straight up Park Row. At the top of the road turn right onto The Headrow, passing The Light shopping centre on your left. After The Light turn left onto Woodhouse Lane to continue uphill. Keep going, passing Morrisons, Leeds Beckett and the Dry Dock boat pub heading for the large white clock tower. This is the Parkinson building.
