So that's my 15 minutes of fame. Always wondered when/if it would happen biggrin

Got no plans yet. Staying in Devizes, but seeing as venue appears to be one of about 3 buildings in a 10 mile radius (ok, slight exaggeration) would guess most of us will be meeting there.

Who else is going out of interest?

You are the only person outside the band and crew who is guaranteed to be there!  I never have to worry abut going anywhere to see the Rats on my own cos as at the very least you are there as a designated driver

I'm not going to this one though.

Shame. See you in Tring though? Welcome to a lift there if it helps? I'm going on to Whitehaven though so can't offer return sad to say.

I'm all OK for Tring.  I can catch train after work, and I have a room at Premier Inn.   But will probably end up staying with uncle who lives there. As long as it doesn't rain.  If it does I'm not going.

Would like to know stage times as I want to see From The Jam.

Re: Tring:- Must be a good chance this is reverse running order, so maybe the Plymouth stage times can be used as a guide?

This is a drive away from The Kings Arms: www.thebridgeinnathorton.co.uk/ Suss, what do you think? The Kings arms might be packed, but easy for people to get to if no car? But this is away from it, so less busy (hopefully).

www.thisiswiltshire.co.uk/news/11225407.Lucky_ticketholder_will_go_backstage_to_meet_Concert_at_the_Kings__stars/. There's going to be a random ticket draw for backstage pass.

Anyone thought about meet up venue? I will be putting on Facebook in a day or 2?

The Bridge Inn suits me. Looks like it's no more than a couple of miles. Will prob walk across from there to venue if the weather is ok.

According to Google maps it's 3.3 miles and would take around 1 hour to walk. I don't know that I'm up to that these days, unfortunately and then having to stand up for a good few hours.

 

shall we say from 4 pm or earlier?

"...over 3,250 sold out of 4,500 available."

I thought this was just a glorified pub gig. That is bigger than some festivals!

Phew, yes!! I was thinking of the Gate. Clearly misunderstood completely.

Mr Baulu said tickets were selling well, with more than 3,250 sold out of 4,500 available. He has urged people who want to go to get their tickets soon as the week before the event normally results in a last-minute rush.(From This is Wiltshire 24 May)

Seems it's likely to be nearly sold out by Saturday. This one sounds like it could be really good, as it's for Rock Against Cancer.With the recent death of teen Stephen Sutton and his fundraising affords  chances are the gig will sell out. Great that Bob and the Rats are helping out.smile

Happy to meet at The Bridge for around 4pm. I did see you can leave road and follow canal path to All Cannings so may yet walk it. Weather forecast is decent for Sat.

Clearly after about 3 pints at Bridge it'll be 'what's local cab number?'....

Is anyone else joining us?

Same as last week but with Banana Republic and When the Night Comes back in as slot was a little longer. Great gig. Warm, dry evening, responsive crowd packed in, and the sound was spot on.

Rats had to follow The Straits, who played Dire Straits stuff impeccably and went down really well, even with non aficionados like me. Needless to say they rose to the occasion smile.
