The Event - Parking

Di B


In a bit of a quandry.... I was looking at training it to Birmingham but I have worked out the last one back to Derby leaves at 11pm :roll: :roll:

Now then, I can fit plenty of beer in before then (that isn't the problem!) but *if* we *might* be playing live at 10.28pm it isn't likely I am going to get the train that evening is it? :cry:

So.... does anyone know any really really cheap places to park in Brum City centre 'cos even though I used to work around there I haven't a clue!

Info on this and also any clarification on wether we are live/recorded would be of assistance, cheers.

Oh yeah, this is to give me some peace!!! ;-) ;-)Many thanks to members of Matlock Band, Carlton Brass and Long Eaton band who have sponsored myself and Kirstie :lol:

Will that do ya :wink: ?

I've spoken to John this evening and it's more than likely that the 10.28 p.m. slot will be a pre-recorded session.

Hi Di...

Look our for a detailed announcement sometime tomorrow where I will explain exaclty what is happening, times, expectations etc....

It might be worth asking the BBC about parking, *or anyone local!!) cos anyone who is travelling down is going to have to contend with city centre parking. The Pallasades is where I used to go but it isn't the cheapest.

I think I will still go on train then. If there is a problem Kirstie and I will take over your house squeaky! :lol: Don't worry, we'll let you pitch a tent in your garden :wink:


Well i'm going to be on that train (to derby) cos that's the last one i can get back to sheffield. so no solo tromb if you're playing that late.

Cheers guys!

Now I have a choice.... do I go in car or go on train knowing I could be accosted by a trombone player? :lol:

Still, both are better than hi-jacking squeaky's I guess :lol:
