Got hotel booked up for friday and saturday. Got to get there a day early to get best parking spot. And the missus mentioned something about big shopping centres and Christmas shopping, although 5th December is 19 days to early to worry about that.
Im going up the friday, but will be heading home in similar directions to you two (phil and maxdaccent), did you fancy passing through Northampton on way home? Theres a big meet on there that night, details are on here somewhere.
