    Chris, I will catch you online about this I've got some info on this for you....

    The idea looks cool, don't forget we need to have all valid PAT Tests on all electrical goods or else the H&S guy will murder you

    Erm..No, we don't, especially as we tend to 'borrow' kit which is out of our control.




    Frequently Asked Questions
    Is PAT Testing a legal requirement?

    The quick answer is no, you are not legally required to have PAT Testing carried out. However an increasing number of insurance companies stipulate that PAT Testing to be carried out as a condition of their policy. In addition it is a statutory requirement that electrical equipment is safe and suited to the purpose for which it is used as shown by the following regulations.

    If you need to be slightly under the influence to understand it, how about following it to the letter/scribble and adding a bar - so all people that visit the actual stand are plastered beforehand

    Going to try and get down for a couple of day this year (fingers tightly crossed!) so where would anyone suggest to stay overnight and at what cost? bearing in mind that my going may all depend on how deep in someones pockets they may have to reach!

    If your SLT want cheap you could always stay here - Hostel London located in Russell Square - Voted One of the best Hostels in London by our guests | Generator Hostels its certainly an interesting experience and cheap!! My advice would be look around and probably don't be afraid of having to tube it in a few stops or even zones in the morning if you want a hotel that is cheap everything around Olympia will be rather pricey simply because its BETT week and they know thousands of people will be coming so they bump prices up.

    I, and fellow Edugeeks have stayed here in the past - Holiday Inn London Kensington Forum Hotel its a nice hotel, and has great views. Don't know where DB is getting accomodation at this year for the BETT people. I've stayed in a couple of Travel Lodges around London and again they are not bad really bit pricey but fine.

    It's worth considering stopping a bit further out and "commuting". You'll get a cheaper Holiday Inn or similar in say Milton Keynes, St Albans or Luton and still be able to get to the capital in a sensible journey.

    ooooh luton....there is a decent holiday inn right near the motor way, prices are reasonable...if you like travelodge, there is another good one, situated above a pub called the halfway house...and its directly opposite a tesco extra which is open 24 hours a day

    We could probably accomodate one sensible, civilised Edugeek for free on our (very comfy) sofabed in sunny, exotic Tooting - I commute in to South Kensington from there every day, the journey's not bad.

    Are they running on the Saturday? If so I might be down for a peek as I can't get the time off for the weekdays.
