Q: Where is TWT taking place?

A: The festival is based in the Black-E, a contemporary arts/community centre at 1 Great George Street, Liverpool. All our sessions and events are happening in various spaces in the venue, except for the I, Daniel Blake screening which will take place at FACT Cinema.

Q: I’m attending the event from outside Liverpool. How can I get accommodation/travel arrangements?

A: We offer cheap accommodation and travel to everyone attending the event. You can get a seat on a coach from various cities to Liverpool here, and see our accommodation options here.

If you require special accommodations, please email christine@theworldtransformed.org for overnight and monty@theworldtransformed.org for travel arrangements.


Q: How is TWT ticketed?

A: You can book a FREE ticket to the event here. This grants you entry to all the venue for the 4 days, as well as access to all of our 'regular' sessions. You don't need tickets for individual sessions,* however some may be very popular and you might be turned away if there is a high turnout. Turn up to each session promptly to avoid disappointment. At especially busy times, we may have to operate a one in, one out policy at the venue entrance.

*This excludes our 'Special Events' which are ticketed separately. For these three events, we unfortunately have to charge a small fee to cover the costs of running the festival. See here for more details. 

Q: Can I bring my children with me?

A: TWT is a family friendly event, and we encourage you to bring your children with you. We have a children’s programme of activities running throughout the weekend, which will be released soon. There is also a creche on Saturday afternoon and all day on Sunday, as well as a kids’ corner in all of the sessions staffed by a DBS checked volunteer.


A: Are there any age restrictions on who can attend the event?

Q: Daytime events are open to attendees of all ages. The music events on Tuesday and Saturday night are restricted to 18+.
