The venue is hard to miss, being right just over the road from the bright lights of Koko. If travelling on the tube, Mornington Crescent and Camden Town stations on the Northern Line are both just a couple of minutes walk away. If driving, parking meters are right outside the venue, but be warned, the wardens are very strict in the area. Free parking is available after 6.30pm
