    Apparently, Northern Rail are holding industrial action every weekend through December - PLEASE NOTE: This is just something I read on another forum, I have absolutely no other knowledge to back this up, sorry.
    However: "Bus stops for 35 routes all within six minutes walk, plus Piccadilly Gardens bus hub less than ten minutes away. Cheap parking in a multi-storey car park 150m from venue (£2 all day)"
