I got me a ticket and a twin room at the venue hotel (they don't do singles), so if anyone wants to split costs on a room give us a shout :)
Have a people carrier too so if you need a lift up (I am at Measham DE12) same again shout up.

I've not booked my room (yet)

Are you going up on the Friday? If so (I plan to go up on the Friday too) then I don't mind halving the cost and sharing the room (if that's OK)

There are just 4 more weeks to get your ticket at the reduced price of £10. From 1st June tickets will be priced at £12.50, so get your orders in!

@woody.cool
Sorry for the delay I was waiting for a friend who I had offered it to to confirm he had a room first, he is now going with his wife so it is still free,
I have the room for Saturday night only at the moment but as everyone seems to be doing Friday too I reckon I have no choice than turn up on Friday, so I will call the hotel tomorrow an try to extend it.
You are more than welcome to travel up with me and share the room if you wish.

Yep, let me know if you've managed to extend it.
If so, I'll share with you.
Also, where do you live? If it's inbetween Northampton and Huddersfield, then I could possibly pick you up!?!

Good news, I have extended the hotel booking and am now going up on the Friday :)
The bed is yours if you are still happy with that. The cost for the room for 2 nights is £140 inc breakfast, that's £70 each. Is that OK?
I live at Measham which it 48 miles from Northampton and pretty much in the right direction too (M1, A5, A444), I would be happy to share with you, or if you want to come to me and take my car from here then that's OK too.

Cheers imnogeek.

I'm bringing machines to the event, so it might be easier for me to drive up their (and pick you up on the way) but I don't know whether you're planning on taking any games/machines up.
Let me know if this is OK

b.t.w. That shared cost is fine by me (makes it quite a bit cheaper)

It has been a while so I thought I would give a quick update on progress...

There are only 81 days until Retro Reunited and I am already getting very stressed out, however I am really pleased to announce that the show is now being sponsored by the Centre for Computing History "a UK museum dedicated to preserving and presenting a collection of important computers and related artifacts. It spotlights the people behind the inventions and records the information necessary to inspire and enthuse future generations".
The centre will be having a large presence at the show and bringing along some of their wonderful oddities like Sir Clive's ill fated Sinclair C5!

The list of arcade machines is growing thanks to people like Colin from JAMMA+, Witchfinder and the legend that is Archer MacLean.

We all know that people love Rock Band and Guitar Hero at these get togethers, so this time we are taking it back in time to the 60s. A few days before the show will see the launch of Rock Band Beatles and we hope to have the game and a set of the Beatles inspired peripherals for you all to rock out on.

We will be testing out modern telecommunications with a live link up to Miami on Saturday.

We have a new forum for the show at http://retroreunited.info/forum

Ticket sales are going really well and it looks like we are going to have a great show.
