    What! How can you, if I was there I would be going to one a night at least! We should have an edugeek row at them As for Innuendo that will keep you awake trust me it will. I think I may have to see Wicked instead, I have done WWRY an awful lot this last 12 months due to it being the school show and I did work on that.

    Year before last I slept through Innuendo on the Saturday ... seriously ... and that was with travelling down each day.

    On the Friday I also slept through the first 15 minutes of Fame

    Last year, when I actually stayed over and most evenings were spent in my room either working remotely to the school (it was reports season but thankfully that is somebody else's problem this year :-D !) or getting things ready for the next day. The only break was our glorious lord and master (grovel, grovel) taking me and Ric_ out for a curry.

    This year we have a few more things going on as well as my brother is likely to take me out for a meal too ...

    And there is likely to be at least one night when some CertForum members are going to have a few beers with us as well.

    Just got the request form back from the head to say I'm okay to go on the Wednesday. JCollings - I reckon your idea of a visit to the Comedy Store on the Wednesday evening is a good one, guess I'll see you there!

    They have a Comedy Store down there? Bet that goes down a treat with London's sense of humour

    Yeah, great idea if you like fines! Going into London, it certainly won't work at Euston, Kings Cross, Victoria, Paddington, Fenchurch Street and London Bridge because they have automatic barriers, and so probably do many others.

    And if you get caught on the train, they'll charge you the full open single fare, so you could be looking at major money!

    56 is not bad for the bus. I think im paying 40 for a return flight tommorrow, but will be more by the time I pay for the standstead express and tube onto Olympia and back.

    We're going from Coventry Station to Euston - 20 each return. Then there's the fares for the underground. And all the junk food....

    Exclamation

    Guys can anyone help - what are the tubes/trains I need to get from euston to olympia? Do I just need to take victoria, picadilly and district lines on the tube? And does this mean I need a ticket for 2 zones? TFL is a bit confusing
