    Now that we know that GMEX is cancelled, I still don't see a reason why we can't go down to Manchester for the weekend to meet Maggy. Yeah, we've missed an opportunity to go to GMEX, collect for charity and get in costume, but FanForce is more about that. We in the North are a family, and Maggy is a part of that family that deserves to meet us all and enjoy spending time with us. So, I am opening the official, "Meet Maggy" thread, so that every member of the North can get the opportunity to meet her.

    P.S. [:D] Maggy

    Yep, I'd be up for that.

    Yes, Maggy. Just realised from reading other threads, that this is for the 10th & 11th (must remember to cancel my booking for GMEX, then!).

    If anyone from the NE wants to stay over, shout up and I'll try and book a room somewhere....alternatively, there's a hostel in the city centre that does cheap b&b:

    http://www.hattersgroup.com/index.html

    They have beds for £18/night in a mixed dorm of 10 people

    Thinking re the hostel, if people wanted to go there it may be better to travel to Manc on the train, as I doubt there'll be anywhere to park......[face_thinking]

    I'm down for this.

    It will be nice to meet you all again and have a proper chat away from the stresses of G-Mex.

    So is there anything you'd like to do in Manchester Maggy?


    Hey Suzi, I don't know it me and Tim will be still sharing a room but if not will there be any room in the hostel?

    Yes, there are currently rooms available for Fri/Sat night (I checked the 10 bed mixed dorm ensuite) They do group bookings for more than 6 people too.
    I looked at the Hilton Chambers one.

    That's not really the question :p
    I've been there for nine weeks already ;)

    so what do you guys wanna see?

    Manchester has - how shocking - Manchester United and Old Trafford
    then I have a book with several walks through the city centre to see the highlights (Cathedral, Town Hall, Deansgate with Roman excavation and canals, Urbis, ...)
    [face_thinking]
    several museums


    dunno what are you all up and what might be interesting?

    I'm up for most thing, though I don't really want to go to either the City of Manchester Stadium or Old Trafford. I hate football :p

    If I were to get the train down, which would be the best station to use- Manchester Piccadilly or Oxford? From looking at the other thread, Piccadilly is the better option...?

    Picaddilly is the most accessible from the mainline from Darlington. They go Newcastle-Manchester Airport, with Picaddilly as the penultimate stop.

    OK, thanks Sie.
    I'm looking at Ncle-Manc Piccadilly:
    Fri 9th- Dept Ncle 17.17 arrive MP 19.50
    Sun 11th- Dept MP 13.12, arrive Ncle 16.19
    Tickets are £53.60 on the GNER website, but I think I'll try and shop around!

    Try looking at qjump.co.uk. I think you might just get it cheaper.

    Same price. Looks like the website is operated by the same people who do the GNER site. I'll pop into the station at some point and see if they have cheaper tickets there.

    yes teh cozy (i prolly mispelled that) :D

    i can't promise promise right now as it's all a bit up in the air because we need to find a third party to move in. if you know someone who desperately needs to stay in mc'r for 250 £ a month.... let me know.

    if we did come to my hosue, though, that'd be ace, i think, i love making food for people :D
