Alun how big is the bar? and ask them to be well stocked up :D

Everything is being massively scaled up to fit the increase in numbers, fear not.

Looking forward to this one, pif and I already discussing ferry options, the ball is rolling, bring it on :D

The 'French Sector' of the campsite is under construction, personal boulangeries etc.

It's when they insist on wearing those stripey shirts, berets and strings of onions that pisses me off.

In eleven years living here, I've never seen anybody but Phil dressed that way. But the clogs and ferret kind of spoil it.

Obviously not in the spirit of the festival, but I don't have two wheels at the moment.
Is there any way of getting to the venue by public transport, as I would like to attend
but would have to fly in to either London or Manchester.
And is there accomadation available other than camping?

That's a hell of a display of spirit. The nearest train station is Stratford upon Avon and with that kind of commitment I'll organise a pick up from the station for you. Bring your licience there are loads of test rides available from all the manufacturers.

There are 'glamping' options available, check out the link on the booking page. There are a couple of hotels in Alcester and loads in Stratford upon Avon.

just in case it helps anyone......I will be travelling up from London on the Wednesday afternoon with a mate. We managed to book a room (twin before you lot start speculating) at 45 quid in the Alcester Inn, in......yes you guessed, Alcester. Looks like a decent place with a nice bar for the much needed couple of pints on arrival..... ;)

That's a very reasonable rate! If you're looking for something to do in the localish area on the Thursday, you might be interested in checking out this Cotswolds route we featured in ABR a couple of years back - https://adventurebikerider.com/forum/vi ... 43&t=43541.
