do people staying in shipley know you can walk along the canal to get there? it's so much prettier than along the main road.
and if anyone has any Qs about the local area, just ask. i don't live quite there, but really not so far.

I will be there saturday and Sunday.
Is anyone else staying at the Ibis?

LizaJ, how long does it take you from Formby?
from Southport , it's taken between 1 1/2 hours - 2 hours depending on traffic. We usually set off at 7.00 to get there for 9.30 workshops ..and end up having brekkie:D

I'm staying out in Bingley ( well 2 miles out) as the Abbey Lodge rooms just gor seedier and seedier each time we stayed despite lovely staff and a good breakfast.
Last time we were up 3 flights of stairs in an attic with ciggie burns all over the wondow ledge..next to a communal toilet with a guy lurking outside on the cadge for ciggies and our friends were in a windowless cupboard with a 3/4 bed and dubious items on the bathroom floor:(

ooops sorry I was replying to Caro's post and just read yours. All I can say is the first 2 times we stayed there the rooms were fine but the last 2 have not. You may be lucky and the owner and staff are really nice as I said.

it's one of the best, fun, well organized festivals i've ever been too, so i'm glad to be going back!!! even though it's quite the hike for me!

getting a train tomorrow morning and traveling up with beatrice (she's driving from london, thank you thank you), friday afternoon (well, evening by the time we get there i'm sure)

and really looking forward to teaching, dancing, hanging out. and maybe some shopping (though i shouldnt, i left all my dance money in cairo!), but i got some cds that i love but went bust, so need replacement and i'm sure aladin's cave will have 'em all.

see you all there!
