Posted:I might make an appearance, but I wouldn't hold my breath expecting me to turn up. My record for turning up to these things after I've said i'd definitely be there hasn't exactly been the best.

But having said that I will talk to my friends see if I can persuade them to come up, if so then I'll be there. Hmmmm it's in kingston right? that's a right pain in the @r$e for me to get too. Well I guess we'll see what happens.

Posted:kingston is easy to get to from dorking. Take a train to wimbolden and then one to surbiton. There's buses from outside surbiton station that go well close to the fair (can't remember the numbers). The whole journey will be under an hour. I've done it from guildford by train a couple of times now.

I'll debate about coming, got several exams next week so the correct answer is no way, but we'll see

Posted:UCOF, morden to kingston takes about half an hour. From Morden South station, go to wimbledon, then change for kingston. (platform 8, probably Shepperton service) That way you can meet up with people coming fron London, 'cos from waterloo u go via wimbledon.

Posted:It in my plan to make it :-)
Supposed to be working Saturday and Sunday, but have just blagged Sunday off :-))

Now that just leave me to find a party on Satuday night... shouldn't be hard, only have 2 requirements : 1) Somewhere to spin fire. 2) Dirty acid techno :-D

Kat, I've driven through Kingston before with someone who lives there, and that didn't stop us getting stuck in the one-way nightmare! will probably be abandoning the car before we get involved with it this time...

See you all in Kingston on Sunday, hopefully with some of the Northampton Circ'Citron in tow

Wooooop!

what does 3 concessions mean? Does it mean i can blag 2 quid off for being a student?

a fiver a ticket is a bit steep imho, considering there's plenty of green fairs that are voluntary donations only and manage to stay afloat (ie Ambient Green Picnic)
