Planning? Yes, I'd like to go.

But would like to go with another driver. It's a 3 hour drive each way. Anyone from Yorkshire going? I'm happy to drive on the way back as I don't drink.

What's the attraction?
You travel half the country to pay a fortune to queue for ages to hear equipment in a crowded room full of strangers, rather than go for free to a local dealers and hear the equipment by yourself.

Park & Ride?
Assuming most people will be coming via M4 & M5 then M32 or A38 there aren't any park & rides that I'm aware of.

I will be there as usual, maybe on the Sunday this year when it's a bit quieter, although Friday is definately a good option for those not working that day.

I always use the park and ride at Brislington, except Sundays (it's closed then), it's a few quid cheaper than parking in the centre and it doesn't take too long to get to the Marriot. I think there are 4 park and rides dotted around Bristol so most directions are catered for.

Booked friday off so just need to purchase a ticket.

The first year I went on the train which is easy, but since I have had a lift but TBH driving into Bristol is a nightmare.

I am hoping to avoid another lift and go on the train - albeit on my own, but it's just less hassle.

Main interest this year will be floorstanding speakers - mostly over £2000.
