Now might be a good time to start looking at potential hotels if we're gonna do the all-in-one-spot thing.

Anyone? =P I'll note the accomadation has got quite pricey, likely because it's so damn late now. I think at this point it'll have to be everyone for themselves, it's entirely possible it'll all be gone otherwise. I've just booked mine now.

Thanks for that, you just saved me ₤15
Orenge and I have finally managed to get our hotel room. Overlord's right, you guys need to get in there now if you're gonna get a hotel anywhere near the venue. We're a 20 minute walk away and that's the closest we could get; better than nothing though.

Regardless - judging by people who I've spoken to so far, I think this is also a realistic opportunity - who fancies a Retro Breakfast somewhere on Saturday morning? =P Dependent on start time, if it's early enough this might be doable. Even moreso Sunday.

When you are in Brighton/Hove, be advised: the bus service is insanely cheap and is running all the time. If you want to take advantage of maximum savings, I highly suggest you dash into a newsagent/high street store and buy a 'daily saver ticket'. These bad boys cost £3 each roughly and they entitle one person each to ride the Brighton & Hove buses all day. This means you can travel in and to Brighton, Lewes, Uckfield, Crowborough and Tunbridge Wells all day for £3.
PROTIP: DO THIS ON SUNDAY. If we end up having the Sunday in Brighton I will be taking you guys into Brighton city centre so these tickets will be extremely useful.
However, for this reason, I myself will not be booking a hotel - the earliest bus from Uckfield is at around 6:30am on Saturday so I can be in Brighton for around 7:15. Sunday's first bus is about 8:30, so I'll be there by 9:30 on Sunday.

So yeah, next time folks, or whenever a massive barcade run happens in London. Wasn't entirely devoted to the idea of traveling to Brighton anywho (Sorry Nova!)
This year feels like a "We're doing this even because we have to and have done for the previous few years" instead of possibly taking the approach of "Because of olympics, and lack of a large venue, we're giving it a miss and making NEXT year extra extra special".
Then again that could just be me being cynical...
