Edge-Lit - getting there

Hi Guys,

With less than a couple of weeks to go until Edge-Lit, I thought it'd be a good idea to post some key information for our visitors, first and foremost how to actually get to the event!

In general, Derby is a town which is pretty easily accessed from a lot of places - there are regular buses from around Derbyshire, as well as locations like Stoke, Manchester, Nottingham and so on, as well as being reachable easily by train from all manner of locations.

QUAD itself is found on Derby Market Place, and the postcode is DE1 3AS for those of you looking to use the Sat-Nav. If you are driving, the best bet for parking would be the Assembly Rooms car park, which is directly opposite the venue on the Market Place. However there are charges to park at the Assembly Rooms.

For those of you coming by bus, if you come out of Derby Bus Station and turn right, you'll be able to see QUAD from there as a large wood and glass building. If you turn right and head down to the third zebra crossing, just outside the Council House (which is being redeveloped), and cross there you'll be right outside.

For those of you coming by train, a taxi to the Market Place would cost less than £5. If you'd prefer to walk down, the best bet will be to come out of the train station and head straight down Station Road. From there, turn right and basically keep going in a straight line all through the town centre. This will ultimately bring you to the Market Place, where you will see QUAD on the right hand side, near to the BBC Big Screen.

QUAD also has a getting there page on its site, which you can check out at

I'll be posting some more information for anyone heading along as the week wears on - of course if there are any queries about the event at all, you can always drop me a line at - I'll be happy to help!

Thanks a lot!
