No doubt we can arrange lifts, etc. then park at the railway station.  Who's up?

Don't forget - usual NEC rules apply. Take your own food, give serious consideration to arriving by train. Avoids parking fees, keeps you undercover from arrival to the halls.

Dolls house show is on at the same time, in the next door halls. Ideal if you're other half doesn't want to be dragged around smelly, leaking and rotten old cars.

I think my other half would prefer the resto show. Or not coming remotely near the NEC.
