Didcot for us I reckon. Nick doesn't fit into The Mill!

I was thinking Marlborough on a Saturday, combined with a day out :)

Can't you stick his legs out of a window or something?

Buxton and/or Liverpool for me!  The Liverpool venue looks gorgeous and is quite close to Lime Street Station.

We're going to Buxton - tickets booked (front row). It will be part of our "summer holiday" as we haven't managed to get away yet. Farm work will NOT get in the way (as it did with Bellowhead at Harrogate).

Goody - I'm hoping we can be at the caravan that week and go. They don't seem to have any London or Essex dates this tour.

There actually *aren't* any windows...anyway, it's a 35mile drive versus  a 7mile bus (so can drink beer!) journey, so bit of a no-brainer anyway  ;)

Didn't know about the bus. Last time we went to Didcot many years ago (for Frost & Fire) we stayed at the Premier Inn in Abingdon but I drove.

They all go from Oxford Road. Like that's *any* use to you now  ;D. It used to go to Didcot from right outside our house, but that was before there was an arts centre with Decent Beer on....

Woohoo!  Walking distance!  Not that we will of course  ::)

Ethan's Grandad's coming with us again  :o.  I don't understand all this sudden going out enjoying himself - he's never been very good at that kind of thing!  He'll be going to festivals if we don't watch it.

It is a great venue Shelley, worth a visit in it's own right. We'll probably see you there!

Tickets for the Mill are selling really fast. Two people in our group of five need lots of legroom and so we're having to sit in two separate groups, so if you're thinking about going, you'd better get in there quick!

Yes, we had the last aisle seat in a group of three and we're in Row H - two rows from the back.  Get in quick, Maureen.
