Wherever you are travelling from, getting to Birmingham is easy. Located in the heart of England, the city is at the hub of transport networks and you can easily reach us by rail, road or air. A list of festival venues can be found here.
The centre of Birmingham is facilitated by three train stations: Birmingham New Street, Birmingham Snow Hill and Birmingham Moor Street. Birmingham New Street is at the heart of the National Rail network with regular services from London Euston and towns and cities across the UK. Birmingham Snow Hill and Birmingham Moor Street facilitate other routes, including those from London Marylebone.
With its famous Spaghetti junction, Birmingham is at the heart of the UK motorway network. Whether you are travelling from north, south, east or west Birmingham is linked to the rest of the UK by the M5, M6, M40 and M42. The A34 and A38 provide additional routes into the city.
Please note that due to the ongoing Paradise Circus Redevelopment, journey times into Birmingham City Centre may be affected.

Birmingham International Airport is served by over 50 airlines from more than 100 destinations. Direct connections are offered to many more. The airport is located on the M42 motorway and is served by Birmingham International Train Station, with a direct route into Birmingham New Street that takes around ten minutes.
With its excellent road connections Birmingham is easy to reach by coach. A wide range of National Express coach services will bring you into Digbeth Coach Station, located in the centre of the city, from all parts of UK.
Once you are in the City Centre
The majority of our festival venues are located in the city centre just a short distance walk from each other. There are excellent local rail and bus facilities to help you get to those venues that are a little bit further out.
