    Championship Final RAH - who's going ?

    Booked me ticket for the RAH this year , will be in a box with MRSH , Aardvark and probably a few others ! Know its a while to go yet but who else is planning to be in Bert's barn for the day ?

    Start saving money now and we'll be able to afford a pint on the day !!! (Thank the lord for Imperial College SU bar!!!).


    PS Mods - feel free to move if this would be better off elsewhere !

    We shan't be there this year, as we're in Harrogate with the Wind Ensemble. Will try and get to some of the pre-contest events though: Enfield & Steve Sykes sounds quite promising.

    Treating the good lady to a day out Kev? Whatever next!

    Would have been there but unfortunately the band are engaged to play at the final night of the CAMRA Norwich Beer Festival!! What makes it worse is we will only just have recovered from having played there on the Wednesday night!

    I'm likely to be there once again!
    I might listen to more than 2 bands this year though. Who am I kidding?! I'll probably be in the Mews all day like last time!
    I wonder how I'll get to the train home this year?!

    I may be there this year doing some live reviews such as the ones we did from Weston Super Mare. Not 100% yet, it depends on what can be arranged.

    Unfortunately I can't go this year. SOMEONE has booked an engagement for the band on the Saturday evening! I'm really disappointed!

    Last year was great, we took in Phantom of the Opera on the Friday evening, and then sat and listened to all (well Tim did ) the bands on the Saturday. Went out (staggered out) Saturday evening and came home Sunday. Great weekend, was planning on doing it again till I looked at our engagement list!

    Oh well, maybe next year....

    I think Butlins proved that being organised well in advance isn't essential - it's just preferred!
