I have been having a look at transport options for this concert, and a coach seems the best option. Getting to Banbury is easy enough (I'll be in Banbury by midday!! - the next coach is too late!), but National Express don't offer a late night return - the latest they return on Saturday evening is 9.00pm, which is of course too late! The next coach back to Birmingham is 1.40am on Sunday morning!
Either I'm going to have to find a different coach company, or I'm going to have to find something to do for about 2 hours until the coach leaves!
So pleased to hear that you will be joining us . St Mary's is a church and although a very large church, it only has pews for seats, which cant really be numbered. So it means if you want to sit near the front, that we have to queue early !!
However, the chuch is licensed to sell alcohol, so you can enjoy a glass of wine or two in the interval if you want too
Last time I went to a cathedral concert, our tickets had a row number on. Like any normal person, I hate to queue early! One of the many joys about seated concerts.
I went to a standing one last night, and though we got there early, and got the best spot, some VIP guests came along and wanted our spots, just before the concert started, so we were standing against the back wall in the end! Couldn't see a thing either. Argh! Good concert though. XD
But back to Hayley. Look forward to it, I always love visiting Oxford (I find the bicycle mania exciting, lol!)
Will be glad to meet you, Ben. Of course, it will be lovely to see you again Mark, and meet your wife.
