Following the success of PLAY Blackpool, we are taking the show to the East Kent coast...

Make sure to tell people on the door they must keep the wristbands at all times.

Are there any plans for some northern shows? Lately it seems like they're all (not just Play) very far south, requiring a whole day just for travel. Due to money or scheduling clashes, I've not been to anything for a couple of years now :(

Looks great, but that has to be the worse insert graphics of a building I've ever seen, I suggest removing that brown building and leaving just the clouds in the background, that is a real Ms paint job :lol:

But the rest is great, you guys most definitely got your money's worth from the army of troll imagery at the bottom.

Really?

I have never been to one of these shows. I live on the south coast and there is nothing.

Margate is a few hundred miles closer to you than me. Living in Aberdeen has its benefits, but easy transport isn't one of them. Blackpool is over 8 hours on the train for example.

Exactly, there are very few shows in the south, the vast majority of them are up north, which is annoying. Then when we do get a show it's a terrible place to get to like Margate out on the east coast.

There are no shows in the north of the UK. We had one small one a couple of years ago I thought might become an annual event, but it didn't return :(

Brighton would be good, with a lot better access. Though if we do have to trek up to the midlands, how about somewhere traditional, like Skeggy or Mablethorpe? :D

having been to Margate I can confirm it has a road leading into it making it easily accessible via vehicular transport.

They may even have trains too. It Is truly a wondrous age we live in.

Ha ha totally agree. Usual case of if its not my my doorstep i'll moan about the distance ! Theres North West shows like Blackpool, shows in Oxford, shows in Birmingham, shows Margate etc, its not like they're all in one place. People love retro shows, people could start their own, look at Boyo and his old old shows in Kenilworth in the old days. Be good to see other people set up smaller shows elsewhere

It's a nice idea to see more shows down South. I can get to Margate pretty easy. It's slightly easier to get to nowadays - as there are high speed trains from St. Pancras.

Yeah, agreed. That would be a great location and a damn sight easier to get to than Margate too.

Is Dreamland still there?

This is closer to us too so this is likely.
