What do you reckon are the chances of a Chef in an already under-staffed kitchen getting the saturday before Xmas off to go to the Leeds gig are? :cry: :cry:

As for the supports, what happened to the traditional 'Get a band from back in the day to re-form for the tour'? Jesus Jones would have been nice, improbable but nice! :D

Those that are going, have a mint time and if you see a lad with dreads looking happier than a dog with 2 dicks, then I guess I got the night off!

First buses in Leeds have voted to go on strike - 19th December is one of those chosen strike days. That fucks my plans up good and proper. Bastards!!! :evil:

Thinking of giving myself a special Christmas treat and travelling up from Leicester to the Wolves gig. Anyone else staying at the Travelodge, or been there before? what's it like?

not far at all, just have to walk down the back of the venue and then down some stairs and accross two roads.

5 min walk if your sober, considerably more if youve had a few haha

As mentioned on the Chutzpah Jnr thread I've also booked a ticket for Wolves and am thinking of staying at the Travelodge, checked the other day though and they only seemed to have double rooms. Hopefully keep checking and find a single (it's cost £25 overall for the ticket as it is, so the cheaper the room, the better)

I need to do some investigation into getting to Wolves (could drive, but if there's trains I'd prefer that.. but being close to christmas...?)

I've not travelled to a gig outside of the comfort of my Derby/Nottingham gig-zone before this. Not alone anyway.

I envisage this being an excellent, but expensive, gig!
Then again it can't be any more expensive than the tour with all the lovely merchandise...

They only have double rooms and family rooms:

And they charge per room, not per person so you'd likely pay the same price for a single room anyway.

There's a Novotel which is essentially right next to the station, but you won't get it for anything like 29 quid a night.

Mattie,
If you're going to go by train, get yourself to your nearest railway station and ask them to find you the cheapest tickets.
If you book into the travelodge, you won't be able to check in until 3pm at the earliest (unless you specify early check in, and then I think you pay more) so you'll not be travelling at a peak time, which will make your ticket cheaper, also, the check out time is midday at the latest so again, you won't travel at peak time.

Just looked on East Coast Trains (was national Express), I know it's not for the area you're travelling in, but they will sell you tickets for any theoretical rail journey in the UK, you can get a return ticket Derby to Wolverhampton for £15.20 (that's if you want to avoid having to go down to your local station)
Be quick about it though, as the price tends to start going up as the days go on, link here:

Hope you get it as cheap as you can, and...... see you there!!
