Not a problem mate - I understand completely (my uni does the same with exams on Saturdays sometimes!). I will make sure any future meetup happens further North too :)

I'm still hoping to make it, but mite have to cancel at last second due to late pay day :?. I'll let you know regardless but I'm tryna find a way around it before end of this week.

Also I'm fine with all the arrangements and have all the information I need to go, so hopefully I can make it.
PM me about any topics I have made if you have any questions about them. I'm available for paid hire on creating mods and styles for phpBB, or configuration/installation - PM for quote

Just 3 days to go until the event now - remember if you have any last minute suggestions you can make them here. Follow the official Twitter account for updates on the day (@phpBBNorth) and remember to register at http://phpbbnorth.eventbrite.com/. Equally if for some reason you won't be able to attend, please let me know :)

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday :)

Just booked train and hotel so I'll be there. Due to arrive at 11.59 on Saturday although you never know with the railways ;).

If anybody is looking for a hotel I'd recommend having a look at Britannia Hotels' website - they've got some Manchester hotels at £19.99 for room only, probably the cheapest around. I'm booked in Britannia Manchester on Saturday night.

Excellent! I wouldnt worry about the time although if you know you're going to be significantly late its not a problem - just give me a call/text on the number in the email I sent out.

It would be good to know how many others are booking hotels so I know whether to as well! How much did you get a room in the Britannia hotel for Mark? Premier Inn are always a safe bet too though from what I can see it's £80-100 per night central Manchester.

Britannia hotel is £19.99 down from £139.00 - at first sight this looks good but reading reviews on Trip Advisor it seems it might not be the best of places to stay - though I suppose if you want to save some money it can't be too bad for a night :)

I paid £19.99 for room only there. I've stayed in them before and while it clearly isn't five star accomodation if you are just using the room to sleep in and leave the day after you can't beat the price really, especially for a city centre hotel.

Yeah the 11.59 is the CrossCountry train - are you joining it at Birmingham? I was going to get that train but I'm probably getting the one before it now.

Sounds great. I'm getting the train too in a minute - follow @phpBB North on Twitter for more updates throughout the day.

I'm aware of the NUS/UCU rally today in Manchester - just to let everyone know that this shouldn't be affecting our day at all - and out evening venue is slightly up-market so shouldn't be overly loud this evening anyway.
