Just had our table confirmed too Bolt-01.  :D

I think we might stay at the Ibis Cheapo again and taxi it into the centre.

Looking forward to attending without anything to do.

Might even throw on some fancy dress. Just like old times.

Booking the Ibis in the morning. Not fucking paying silly money to taxi about again this year. :|

Me and Neil McClements are crashing at the Travel Lodge on Vicar Lane which is less that 1/2 a mile from the event! Good price too!

Are we gonna need a new pub for the Friday? Is The Palace not convenient anymore?

I hate change. :(

also, with the new way they are holding the gig this year- being spread out around the city centre- there is no longer a main hotel for folk to sit in. I reckon the Palace will be as good a place as any to meet.

The Palace is down the bottom end of town (and hill) so it's a bit of a schlep up to Millennium Square main venue. You'd be better trying somewhere like Foley's, or the O'Neill's and the Victoria Hotel behind the Town Hall.

Help needed please, is the Novotel or the Marriott near to the new Thought Bubble location and are they on the flat, as I have very limited mobility? Any other hotel advice much appreciated.

I've booked at the Park Plaza Hotel (£90ish for Sat) as I thought on paper it looked pretty close (Boar Lane City Square, Leeds, LS1 5NS, GB)

Anyone know if this was a good call?

No idea if it's any good, but it is where I've ended up.

I can try n reserve a room in Victoria for us for a Friday meet up - not sure if they'd do it for Saturday without a food order for a few though...

I can pop in n ask sometime nearer the time.
