Not seen many mention this. I'm going, any regulars here the same? Haven't been to anything for nearly two years, I'll be wearing a red carnation in my hair!

Sadly, can't make Blackpool. Will definitely be going to the Margate version in late July, though.

I'd like to, but I've got so much going on at the weekends at the moment ,I don't think I can. Will be a last minute decision I suspect. Went last year for the first time, and really enjoyed it. Just a bit of a trek.

Love to go, but can't. Got a lot on at work through April, and toward the end of the month it looks likely I'll be going offshore, so won't be able to make it. Can't really afford it anyway, as its just a few weeks before I go on holiday. I'm sure they're checking my diary before they book these events, I've missed the last few because of the scheduling.

I'm interested, but need to find out things on both sides before knowing if it's possible. I like blackpool too, so that certainly isn't putting me off. Give me a link somebody to a page with more info(bracing myself for insults regarding how easy the info page is to find...)
