Blake Event - 11 June 2017
winnie-l
OOOOOOHHHHH I am so behind in planning for this. I bought a ticket long long ago but haven't yet scoped out how to even GET there (from Bristol, me got no vehicle) let alone where to stay, & I fear not finding accommodation or being far away....

If anyone knows of safe good accommodation nearby to the event please do post info!
Walking distance? Or are people taking taxis from Didcot or wherever to the event locale?

And if only the teleport worked!!!! =:o

For accommodation, try the Cherry Tree Inn. For transportation, try taking a train from Bristol Temple Meads to Didcot Parkway (approximately an hour). From there, it's a 10-minute walk to Parkway Station, where you can take the X2 bus, which goes through Oxford City Centre and the outskirts, arriving at The Green in Steventon after about 10-15 minutes.

Thank you Maestro Sweevo!

You're welcome, winnie-l. Smile

Winnie - for looking up train times and booking tickets I recommend gwr.com

It's cheaper if you book in advance.

So am I going mad or what - several people in Sep 2016 said they couldn't book at the Premier Inn in Didcot (OX14 4TX) as it was full, but I just checked & there are rooms available - is that the right hotel?? (going by PostCode)
I used the link PurpleCleric posted on 21 Sep 2016 so hope it was for the right hotel!
 
winnie-l
Hmm, it's 3 miles from Didcot Parkway Rail station. Sounds like the right one?....

(me LOST as usual!)
 
Lorna
I have checked and the Premier Inn where we are staying has a post code of OX14 4TX . So you have the correct one.

Maybe a load of 'normal' people found out that the hotel was going to be invaded by B7 fans and made alternative arrangements...?

"Normal people?" Travisina, as you well know WE are the NORMAL people. All the others are mundanes. Angry

Quite right, Paula! That's why I put 'normal' in quote marks - it's what they consider themselves, not the way we see them!

I did think it was weird that it was booked up so far in advance, there must have been cancellations.

The President offered 'mundanes' a chance to release their rooms to loyal Federation citizens whose needs were greater. The Iron Guard can be very persuasive

They are now enjoying a team building exercise to develop a frontier planet for the greater glory and benefit of the Federation. Feedback that I have received so far is very positive. Smile

If you wanted to stay in Steventon, there is a B&B called Tether's End not far from the village hall.

Who's up for a visit to the Pressure Point location (Blake & Gan in the ruins of the church) on the Saturday afternoon?
 
BradPaula
Thanks for announcing our plans, TT. Everyone who is going to be in Steventon/Didcot the Saturday afternoon before Blake con: we are hoping to meet up and have lunch (Cherry Tree Pub?) and then do a location visit in the afternoon to Abingdon, the Pressure Point location. Could we have a show of hands as to who will be able to meet for lunch and the location visit? We will be traveling to Didcot Saturday morning and our party consists of Brad and myself, Lorna and Lurena. Trevor Travis will be there- now who else? We could meet for dinner also if you like- suggestions are always welcome. Let's make this a memorable weekend.

Not entirely sure of the timings, but I'm sure we'd like to do this.

I'm travelling up very early Sunday morning, with Daughter No. 2, so I won't be able to join you.
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

Likewise...alas having no job after Friday I need to ration my expenditures...
