Re: 11 MAY MANCHESTER (European Tour 2010)

Just got my exam timetable and my first is 13th May, phew.

But here's my issue. Looks like I'll be getting the bus up there as I can get to Manchester for £2 instead of £25 by train.
I can either get into Man at 5pm for £5 or 7pm for 90p but I reckon 7pm maybe pushing it as google maps says it's a 25 minute walk from station to venue which is fine as long as show starts at 8pm and there's no traffic!

Who is still looking at places to stay? As I'm going to have to either sleep at station/go dirt cheap hostel.

Hatters seems to be the cheapest at £14.50 a night, but that is a mixed dorm with 18 beds.

£17.50 for a 4-6 bed dorm sounds reasonable.

What's your budget?

My parents have given me some money towards train so now I don't need to catch a 6.30am bus back, yay, so don't need to sleep at station.

Those prices look good to me, didn't really want to go over £20.

Good to know I've got 2 following me already. :)

By the way, if on Saturday evening there are any gaps in the tweets, it's only because I'm loving what's happening on stage too much to be distracted. :supz:

I also set up to follow you, JaHawk, but if you get caught up in the moment, don't worry about us - a lot of us have been there before, and understand completely! :whitey:

Ugh, I know THAT feeling! :roll:

here's hoping it goes fast for both of us cause I have to work for the next several hours and will probably miss your first tweets :?
