An economy for the 99%: practical information
There will be several options for lunch at the event:
- A Manchester-based ethical caterer will be supplying lunches at the venue for £5 each. They will be made from locally-sourced, mainly organic ingredients. We will be selling lunch tickets at the registration desk as you come in, as there will be a maximum capacity of 100 lunches.
- The Eighth Day vegetarian café is just next door to the venue, and is a workers’ co-operative committed to ethical food.
- There are no restrictions on eating your own packed lunch in the bar area of the venue (the bar will not be open, but we will be providing tea and coffee).
- There are also some other food outlets in the local area.
The nearest station is Manchester Oxford Road. Catching a train to here is easier than trying to get a bus from the bigger Manchester Piccadilly station.
If you are coming by bike there is bike parking on Oxford Road right outside the venue.
However, it is also possible to walk from Manchester Piccadilly in around 20 minutes.
