    hi there

    my name is neil and i'm from Totnes in Devon and wondered if anyone
    else is travelling up from Devon to London for Celebration Europe.

    I can't seem to access the Plymouth Forum and thought i would post

    I'm planning on going up on the train and to stay near to the event over

    Is anyone else thinking of doing the same, would be intrested to know as there
    are only 2members include myself that are with the UKG (United Kingdom Garrison)
    who are from Devon.


    501st UKG

    Hello Neil,
    welcome to the south board! I'm from Plymouth and am (of course) planning to go to CE.

    are you going to the comic expo in exeter next weekend as well?

    oh and the plymouth board doesn't really exist anymore, but somehow stayed in the drop-down menu...

    thanks for the reply

    I'currently looking at staying over 1or2 nights at the university down the road

    where is every one else staying in London?

    any good places that are nearby and cheap? PLMK

    also here's a pic of me in one of my SW costumes, the biker scout costume below
    is best costume to wear as its easy to move in compared to my storm trooper and
    boba fett costume that i have

    i might goto the exeter comic event next week, but i've all ready got paul blakes signiture
    on my LE SW DVD BOX SET.

    Great biker scout costume!! :D Wearing it to CE?

    Dunno about everyone else but i expect ill stay at the premier travel inn, bit pricey at £85ish a night but as im going on my own i don't wanna have to travel far in the evenings! There's also rooms available at the custom house hotel near excel for £60 a night, though doesn't seem to be mentioned by the CE website so not sure if the hotel is any good or not. Also still rooms available at the Ibis but £110 a night, eek!! :/

    Thanks for the comments, won't be in the scout costume over CE as
    i want to go in civies and enjoy the day, don't get me wrong but
    you can't enjoy the day out suited up as it restricks you from doing
    stuff as you need to be with the garrison at all times.

    As its the 30th b-day to celbrate i want to get the most out of the 2-3
    days i'm there.

    been looking at University of East London as they are doing night stay
    at there campus for £33 per night and is 3-4 stops on the tube from Excel.
