Where to find us

We're at Northland Shopping Centre, Preston, but it's a little tricky ...

We're located between UniQlo and Target, but you can't get into the Hub from inside the building. You'll need to walk outside through the electric doors on the east side of Northland - and then when you're at the car park turn around and you'll see the Hub. Get directions
