I liked the Armouries location, but could be fun to be more in the centre of town.

Mixed feelings...

Royal Armouries is almost home from home for me and I know that Thought Bubble has helped with extra donations and shop 'footfall' etc.

But the new location will give a higher level of publicity. Amazing how many of my fellow locals haven't even heard of Thought Bubble.

I might expand my thoughts on my blog when I get it restarted.

Good news  :)
More central to Leeds, better weather (well you live in hope) and Gerard Way a top guest already confirmed (looking at my comics anyway).

Actually ignoring the date change... city centre is actually warmer than New Dock usually.

Kinda even more bummed that I missed this year's now as loved the Armouries location. That said a town centre location makes so much sense and sure it will be more than fine.

By 'eck, you're keen, John.  :thumbsup:

Been to the last two TB's, and the Armouries location, was ideal I thought, but we shall see what this one is like. And hopefully better weather with the date change as well.

Anyone any tips for hotels for that part of Leeds. Ibis is about a 15 minute walk, I see. Is that the one most folks will go for?

I prefer to get it all paid for and out of the way asp. This means when it comes round it's as though it's a freebie, madness I know  :lol:

It's cool that it's not as near to Christmas. It might be closer to mine and Rob's sex shop hotel too...

Oh, I totally agree. Get it all out of the way. Think I booked TB last year, in January.

It IS kind of a shame, as I love the armories as a venue. If ever one hall was too packed, just move over to another, it worked out harmonically. Though i'm not one for knocking a venue before i try it, and a shift in dates is no problem for me either, a week before my birthday I should be minted. :lol:

Leeds has a centre?
Well that's just like your opinion man.
