13.6 miles according to Google maps. But from what I can tell, you have to get a bus into Nottingham and then back out to Bilborough, but I reckon it shouldn't take too long.

That's what I'm hoping anyway smile. See you there!

the 28 is the best way cause it takes less time going down ilkeston road, whereas the 35 takes you round the opposite side of the city centre before turning back towards bilborough (besides the 28 has a bus stop right outside harvey haddon). unfortunately i think it's gone up to 1.40 but i'll have to check.

ok buses are still 1.30 it's just the other bus company in nottingham (trent barton) has increased it's fairs to 1.40 and they tend to copy each other, but for now nct buses (28, 35) are still 1.30, but by the time of the BJC they might have gone up. if they do, i'll tell cause let's face it, no-one wants to get caught out without that extra 10p now do we? rolleyes

i remember when it was 80p!

kaleidoscope_eyes, I went to the BJC (in 2005) about 2 weeks after I'd learned to juggle. I was a n00b for sure and I could hardly do anything at all. If nothing else you will have an amazing time sitting in the middle of the hall watching everyone, meeting cool people and lapping it all up. Juggling is optional - I'd say you should come, for sure! biggrin

I went there last year and I still can't juggle for shinola

I had a good time just being in an environment were everyone was doing SOMETHING, even if it was just skinning up...

If you can afford, GO!

Crap, due to a combination of various things, I've just missed the pre reg frown

Since non-pre reg tickets are 70 plus an extra 60 for the balloon modelling, it looks like I'll be missing out on the balloons this year frown frown

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

I can make a fully supporting balloon bra and a clockwork mechanism from balloons, but there's always more to learn smile
