Another definite day out for me too!

I'd love to grab a table this year, will there be an announcement for this later?

I'll probably be coming. Unlikely that Anne will, though. I think she feels that one day of large rooms full of random buzzing noises is enough to be getting on with.

Do we have any idea yet who are likely to be the lucky bods with tables?
... or even when such decisions are made.

P.S.
Where do I leave the cash (unmarked 20s I believe) :lol:

Just a heads up.

I tried to prebook at the Durham Road car park, but they've changed the conditions. These days you can only prebook an evening slot on any day, you can't prebook the £5 promotional weekend rate (like I did the last two years).

Now, I don't know how busy it is these days, but you might want to think about changing your logistics - especially if you've got a table and are carrying kit. :(

Well just bought my ticket (£9 'cos I'm apparently knocking on a bit). Coming up by train on Friday so if anyone's around on Friday night and fancies meeting up I'll be up for it.

BOO! :D
Do you remember where it was we had that dinner last year. I really enjoyed it, and the staff were brilliant.

Can't for the life of me remember so I asked Anne who reckons it was a Lebanese. This led us to Mount Lebanon restaurant in West Street. From the pictures I think that's right.

I booked the ticket—but I can't get a train to Sheffield on the 6th from Norwich. Seems like the trains are disrupted and have replacement busses, will take too long and cost too much! :madas:

Can someone play the Hydrasynth keyboard for me?

That's a shame. Car hire/share not an option?

I'm very much hoping to do just that!

Elf

I have to get back on the same day, so seven hours driving then up at 6, not a great combination.

Ta. We feel the same re: keyboards I think!

Oh, and the Colossus.
