Conference venue

The exterior of Pride Park Stadium

Our 2020 conference has changed venue and this year, it will take place at Pride Park Stadium, Derby County Football Club’s home ground since 1997.

How to get there

Rail - Pride Park Stadium is well situated for access to the national rail network with Derby station just a 10 minute walk away. There are trains every 30 minutes out of London St. Pancras and they run throughout the day.
Road - Pride Park Stadium is best accessed via the A52 dual carriageway, through the Wyvern Centre. Visitors can park for free in the club’s main car park, which is accessed from Royal Way. The car park is directly in front of the main stadium entrance and club reception, which are located in the stadium’s West Stand. Guests are entitled to complimentary car parking.
Air - East Midlands Airport is our nearest airport, located just 13 miles to the south of Derby, and is easy to get to by most forms of transport. The quickest and cheapest way to get from the airport to Pride Park Stadium is via the Skylink bus which runs between the airport and Derby Railway Station Forecourt (the closest stop for Pride Park Stadium) every 30 minutes during the day and hourly at night. The journey takes less than 30 minutes and costs £3.20 for an adult single.
