Wakefield is an incredibly convenient place to visit. Only 12 minutes from Leeds and 2 hours from London on the train, it is also right on the crossroads of the M1 and M62. Throw in some very affordable hotels, generally cheaper pints and a city centre with venues mere minutes apart and it becomes clear why Long Division Festival is a live music lovers dream.
Bus: Wakefield Bus Station is a literal stones throw from our Main Stage and box office this year. National Express coaches also operate out of here.
By Plane: Our nearest airports are Leeds Bradford – 40 minute drive, Doncaster / Sheffield (Robin Hood) – 50 minute drive and Manchester Airport is only an hours drive.
The main day of the festival takes place on Saturday June 11th, with various standalone events on the Friday and Sunday. For the main day you will swap your ticket at the wristband exchange for a wristband. This will then give you access to all venues.
Alongside regular tickets, there are group discountsand U18 tickets for just £1. All are available through See Tickets and Wah Wah Records (Wakefield), Jumbo and Crash Records (Leeds).
On the Saturday, you swap your ticket for a wristband, which gives access to all venues – easy! Be aware that some venues will reach capacity, so always get down early for bands you really want to see.
The location of the wristband exchange will be announced closer to the event, but will be situated in the city centre.
Long Division Festival is well known for it’s mix of classic music venues and quirky, hidden spaces. This year is no different, with nine venues spread across the city centre. Info on their capacities, addresses and a map can be found here.
All venues are accessible for wheelchair users with the exception of The Counting House (the venue is accessible at The Establishment, but not the toilets). Mechanics Theatre and Wakefield Town Hall require use of a lift. Wakefield Town Hall includes a seated balcony and Westgate Chapel is completely seated.
A full timetable for the Saturday will be made available closer to the event. You’ll be able to download and print your own copy. There will also be a copy in the free programme at the event.
