It's a lovely part of the country. Just rather ill-served by major roads and certainly rail. But then that does add a certain charm.

Charm, swarm — I want to see synthesisers!

Looks like, because of the repairs requiring busses, there are no advance tickets—to restrict demand I assume.

Never come across this before. It'd be cheaper to fly to Superbooth.

They did the same thing on the east coast main line a month ago, just instructions not to travel. :thumbdown:

This time, they 'recommend' you don't travel.

BJG145 isn't coming across is he? I seem to recall he's from that neck of the woods. Share the driving and kip on the journey?

Thanks for the suggestions all.

Sure you don't want to go, BJG145? I'd happily pay petrol and the ticket as that'd be cheaper than the train!

I'm delighted that Yoshimi has a place this year again. Same stand as last year actually :bouncy:

Do come along and have a chat and a play... and if someone wants to hang around for a bit I might get a chance to see some of the rest of the show :tongue:

I'm happy to wander round on your behalf and tell you how good it was if you like? Would that help?
