@Rinoa, Blackpanther & Phu

If you don't see what you want at Earl Shilton then try these
Measham (Ramada Hotel Tamworth)
Ashby de la Zouch which is a lovely market town (Royal Hotel, www.royalhotelashby.com, Fallen Knight, http://www.fallenknighthotel.co.uk/ )
or Market Bosworth (Red Lion, http://www.redlionmarketbosworth.co.uk/)

I live just outside at Measham and can call at any of these places on my way in to pick you up and return you.

Thanks muchly for your kind offer. I'll let you know nearer the time what the state of play is.

I *think* I've got some free accommodation sorted.... if I remember right that saturday finishes off the week I'm on holiday in Shropshire and staying with relatives just north of Kidderminster. That should reduce driving time considerably :)

There is also The Hinckley Island (just outside Hinckley on the A5), The Sketchley Grange (in Hinckley) and the Travel Lodge (in Nuneaton), to name a few.

imnogeek - Thank you very much for the offer, that's very kind of you!

I went ahead and booked The Comfort Inn in Earl Shilton though, which appears to be in walking distance of the venue (quite cheap too - £29.95 for 2 people if anyone else is looking for somewhere to stay).

Thanks for everyone's help :)

It is in walking distance to the venue - literally! Earl Shilton used to be a bit rough but has calmed down a lot over the last few years.
I have been drinking in quite a few of the pubs there to - some of them are superb! ;)

I've sent £5 via pay-pal for the ticket but I've just look at the announcement it says over £5.
Have I got the ticket or I have to pay a bit more for it?

@Resident Paul - it was £5 or more - so that is fine! ;)

I see my names isn't on the list of attendees as I purchase a ticket?
If there is problem with the payment let me know & I come under 'Paul Little' on pay-pal.
