Accomodation and transport:
There will be no free accommodation available this year, however, there are currently some good deals at around £30 per room. Be warned though, it is the school holidays and also some of the football matches for the Olympics are being held at Old Trafford so it is recommended to book sooner rather than later.
The postcode for the actual venue does not work correctly so please use M23 0DT for an approximate location. Below are a number of websites that may be useful:

Driving Directions to the Venue
From the M60 Clockwise (North-East):
From the M60 Anti-Clockwise (North-West):
From the M56 (South):
Some SatNavs and Google Maps suggest you can access the venue direct from the M60 if you use the venue postcode which obviously you can’t!! So I suggest you use the postcode M23 0DT which is for Willenhall Road, Wythenshawe, Manchester. Once you get there, follow directions 5-7 above.
