Travelling by car:

PLEASE NOTE: The Queen Elizabeth Hall is accessed off New Radcliffe Street in Oldham and the postcode you should use is OL1 1NL. (The official address and postcode for the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Oldham Civic Centre will NOT direct you correctly to the event venue!) However, some Satnav systems may incorrectly direct you a very short section of New Radcliffe Street that is accessed via St Mary’s Way and Henshaw Street but is isolated from the venue by the town’s new bus station. The main part of New Radcliffe Street and the QEH are accessed directly off Rochdale Road.

From the direction of Rochdale and the M62 (Jct 20) leave the A627(M) at Jct 1. Take the second exit from the roundabout and follow the A627 (Chadderton Way) to the next roundabout. Take the second exit (still Chadderton Way, but now only single carriageway with speed bumps) to the traffic lights on Rochdale Road. Turn right and through the second set of traffic lights at the bottom of St Mary’s Way. Turn left at the mini-roundabout onto New Radcliffe Street and turn right half way up it to reach the QEH and Civic Centre car park. (Alternatively,continue along the A627 from the roundabout’s second exit to the first slip road. Keep over to the left and take the first exit, then follow the instructions below from the roundabout to the venue.)

From the direction of Manchester and the M60 (Jct 22) drive straight through all sets of traffic lights along the dual carriageway and up the hill to Oldham. When you reach the large roundabout with the town’s by-pass bridging over it and Metrolink’s tracks cutting across it, follow the road markings for the town centre then follow the instructions below from the roundabout to the venue.

From the direction of Yorkshire via A62 or A669 follow the by-pass (A62) past Sainsbury’s and town centre buildings to your right and pass underneath the A627 (to Ashton). Immediately take the next slip road (for Manchester M62) but stay in the right hand lane. Leave the roundabout three-quarters the way round, following road markings for the town centre then follow the instructions below from the roundabout to the venue.

From the Manchester Street (A62) roundabout continue the short distance up Manchester Street to the traffic lights. Turn left and drive almost straight across the next junction, where you will see the Civic Centre fronting onto Rochdale Road and running back up West Street. Continue ahead past the gated facade of the building before turning immediately right at the mini-roundabout before you reach the lights at the end of St Mary’s Way. Turn right half way up New Radcliffe Street into Civic Centre car park. You will see the front entrance of the QEH ahead, slightly to your right.
