I might meet people for brekie (well elevensies around eleven) if it's central.
Ashton Court to Parkway? Forget it! About 10 miles and a pretty convoluted treck across the city. From Temple Meads station it would be about 3 miles - still a bastard of a hike. Get a cab.
...or a bus from temple meads into the centre and another bus out (that's what I'm planning anyways)
Don't the Welsh trains stop at Lawrence Hill too ?

Great in principle but I don't really know the cafes in the centre, I'll be relying on my hosts, who I don't see til tonight!
Hopefully see you at the fest though ...
And others in the Bell at 9 tonight!
It should be easy enough to meet you william on the SUNDAY morning for the brekkie - Im confused now. I did specify Sunday because my friends that were going to come to AC and now can't stay suggested going for the brekkie Sunday morning before they leave. Are you guys going for a brekkie Saturday?
ddraig...make your way via bus to the center of town and then get a pick up bus from outside colston hall ( i think?...check AC webby for transport details ) to Ashton Court.
Isn't Halyz coming also/ Could you not hook up wiv her?
Plenty peeps about making there way up...I'm coming from the opposite end of town or I'd be more helpful!
I'll pm you my mobby so you can give me call if ya wanna hook up at festy.
Right now I'm off to dance to YMCA and the birdie song...fek sake
Oh and I've remembered to pack these...
How about we do brekkie on sunday. That way I can bring my little one with me too.
That would suit me too ...
It's a bit of a ritual for me making my own way to the festival on the first day at least .....
Actuellement ..... I believe many kinds of breakfast are available at the site
That sounds alright,we can talk about it
I will do a brekkie on Saturday, but could easily do a Sunday one as well
Heading for the coach very soon now ...
cheers fizzer, prob not gonna be able to make it now and don't think haylz is either.
i did that bus thing last year and it was a mahoosive q, so thought i'd be clever and foloow people and then ended up havin to get a bus in traffic anyway. my fault for arriving in bristol so late.
not gettin there i'm worried about just be able to tear myself away to get home
Aww thats a shame would have been nice to see you both! and EJ too - anyone else dropping out?
breakfast on the sunday is Go! then Im crap at organising things - sorry to have flapped about the date
me and krs were thinking of going to the central cafe which is on a road round the corner a bit from here...near rupert st or something like that? just need to check theyre actually gonna be open on sunday
awwwww mate and at haylz
Hopefully catch up wiv yas at some point in the summer...mebbe a trip to welshwales is in order...I'm trying to sort ut coming to that festy tjngy in cardiff...
I'm up and waiting for the sparkly one to arrive veh soonish...yes I know its stupid 0'clock but we have everything planned military stylish....MHWUAHAHAHAHAHAHA,,,I'm in such a silly festy mood!
Oh and my mate from work will be joining us as her friends have been larry let downs. Should be interesting as she knows very little about what I get up to after work...well the true extent of the shinanigans anyway...cripes!
Oh and she knows nothing about message boards on tinternet either!!! lol
<imagines introducing her to loads of peeps with funny names>
She's gonna teach me poi so you have been warned!
It's gonna be warm today but pack a mac...little light showers middayish could happen...rather that than the scorching heat we've had of late TBH.
Right, I'm orf to put cream on my rash...laters taters!
Have fun everyone
(((to you all)))
Is she there yet? Is she there yet?
Really hoping to see the sparkly one (and the fizzy one ) at some point this weekend, even though I prolly won't get to AC.
I don't know anywhere in the centre that does good veggies breakies. I'm not veggie anymore but I've had a couple in the Prom and they're pretty good, it's about 20-25mins from the centre - it'll build up your appetitie though!
How about the Cuban place (I can't remember the name) along Welshback, that does quite good brekkies if I remember. I haven't been there since last summer and you can sit outside.
There's also the Muddock Cafe - that's pretty good for all types of brekkies and you get a nice view over the riverside - very cool early in the morning watching the city spring into life!
Both are reletively near to each other so at least you'd have options if one was busy or the menu wasn't to your liking.
Hope this helps
Waves at Hammy, coz she'll likely be back to see it
How's it going??
If you need to get to Bristol Parkway, I'd suggest walking from Ashton Court to the bottom of Stokes Croft (30-40mins walk tops) and catching a bus on the left hand side of the road up to Parkway (yep 73A). It should take about 30mins but they are quite frequent (approx. every 10-15mins). Alternitively a taxi may be a speedier escape (I've got one for about £10 before, by the time you've added up seprate train/bus fares and taking into account that Bristol buses are SHITE, it may be cheaper and less hassle too!)
Good luck and hopefully see you there!
3:00 Pie Minister? Nope. 3:30? Nope. 5? 7? 9? Nope. Where was everyone?
We'll be wandering around tomorrow, and will check pie minister every now and then. 3 oclock?
If they were where they were last year, and the pie stall is in roughly the same place try standing back to pie stall and head at roughly 45degree angle left, can't remember distance, do you know what anyone looks like? That'd help. They were up from the main orange stage last year. Near the man selling helium balloons.
Yeah, we know people - just a lack of phone numbers! In fact, if anyone's reading this who'll be around tomorrow, could you PM me or sparrow with a phone number so we can meet up? Ta
Well i think the breakfast idea is off everyone is asleep pretty much but im still going to go and meet my friends at 12.30 for breakfast/brunch they had a bit of a poo time last night
if anyone else wants to arrange the proper breakfast be my guest!!
Did you pm Crispy some numbers lady?? Don't want to phone and maybe wake folk.
Ive pm'd him mine, my phone was getting fairly good reception yesterday so that should be fine.
I've pm'ed him anothers number too whose prolly with spacey and the Bath lot.
I'll pm you with it too Callie in case.
