Frequently asked questions

Where exactly is the festival taking place?

The festival is taking place in the city of Liverpool across 3 main venues:

  • the Black-E (1 Great George St, Liverpool L1 5EW)
  • Constellations (35-39 Greenland St, Liverpool L1 0BS)
  • Hinterlands (7 Mann St, Liverpool L8 5AF)

They are all within a 15-minute walk from Labour Party Conference.

What are the accessibility arrangements for the festival?

We can guarantee the following things at TWT:

  • Wheelchair accessible venues and arrangements for those with mobility requirements
  • Child-friendly venues and childcare arrangements
  • Some affordable travel, accommodation and food options (and we can research accommodation for you, should you have specific requirements)
  • An informational pack including further details on event location, transport, venues, facilities and parking (to be sent on request)

If you would like to see a more comprehensive accessibility plan, if you would like to find out more about a certain arrangement, or if you have any particular accessibility or dietary requirements that you want us to know about, please get in touch by emailing

Can I come to TWT if I’m a Labour Party Conference attendee?

Absolutely! The festival is fully open to Conference delegates and attendees, and with sessions running every day between 9am and 9:30pm, there is plenty of festival content for conference-goers to participate in.

What are my transport options?

There are several different options for transport:

  • We have put on a couple of festival coaches going from London - you can buy single or return tickets online here.
  • If you’re on Facebook, we have set up a carpool group here where people can link up with drivers who are going from the same area as them.
  • Most festival goers will book their own transport either by train, or by coach - we would recommend checking out National Express and Megabus if you want an option that’s generally cheaper than the train!

What are my accommodation options?

There are several different options for accommodation:

  • We have secured a limited amount of basic communal accommodation for festival goers on a budget - you can find out more info and buy tickets online here.
  • We have set up a small couchsurfing operation in and around Liverpool where we will be able to place festival goers who cannot afford other options in spare beds/sofas in local residents’ homes - you can apply for this here.
  • Most festival goers will book their own accommodation in hotels, hostels or Airbnbs in and around Liverpool - we would recommend booking this as soon as possible.

Which ticket option should I go for?

We do not police which tickets people decide to buy, we just ask that people buy whichever ticket they feel they are able to afford. We have a tiered ticketing system in this way so that no-one is financially shut out of the festival. For example, every £35 solidarity ticket we sell enables us to provide one free ticket for those who are unable to afford paid options. So please help us keep the festival accessible to all by choosing the ticket option that you are able to afford!

If I am volunteering, do I need to buy a ticket?

No - if you’ve been confirmed as a TWT volunteer then you do not need a festival ticket.
