One other useful piece of travel information if you are coming to the event on Saturday 17th October.
Manchester City Football Club are playing Bournemouth at home that day.
Kick off at 3pm.
This will mean that the roads and area around the stadium (and our Taekwondo venue!) will get extremely busy from 1:30pm that day so if you are planning to arrive around this pre-match time, please allow a little more time for arrival.
More importantly, roads around the Etihad Stadium are closed at 5pm when the match ends for a 45 minute period to allow the football crowd to disperse.
If you are coming to the evening session the our advice is to arrive before 5pm or after 6pm to avoid this crunch period.
