If one is planning on going (dependent on ticket acquisition), should this be the thread to start discussing plans/meetups and what not or the main thread over in the wildlands of the News and Rumor section?
Do most activities happen there in the hotel or do people filter over to Warhammer World as well (which according to da internetz is 1hr away)?
I would leave the N&R thread for news related discussion rather than planning a meetup (although it's already fallen foul of negative discussions anyway).
I can't fully speak for what will happen this year, as the event already seems to be very different to previous years, but all the activities for the weekend will be at the Hotel. Most people will venture to WHW at some point, but usually either before the event kicks off or afterwards. As for the time to get to WHW from the East Midlands Airport, it's about 20 minutes by car / taxi but I have no idea what public transport is like between the two.
@Indefragable - If you're planning on buying a ticket yourself, rather than having someone else buy one for you, you really need to be awake at 10:00 GMT because I can't see them hanging around for longer than 30 minutes. I'm not sure what the purchase channel is going to be, as in whether they'll be sold via the FW or GW web stores, but hopefully they'll tell us later on in the week. If not I'll give FW a buzz on Friday afternoon to specifically ask which selling channel they'll be using.
