Hi Danny and Dazza, I am seriously thinking about this, but it would be a long journey back home. Do you know if there are any Travel Lodge's or similar 'cheapish' accommodation anywhere close ? If it is booked now for October it should be possible to get a good deal !
If you wish to stay in the City Centre then there is the Quality Hotel - www.hotels-stoke.com/ Personally I wouldn't recommend this as it is quite expensive at over £100 a night and is on the same street as a lot of the night clubs and late night bars. However, it is just a few minutes walk from the Victoria Hall
This is your home territory is it not? I beleive you recommend the Victoria Hall?
So, if I were to do my usual three or four day meander, perhaps book an intercity, and three nights riding trams(?), viewing art galleries and eating out, other theatres or what ever is on at the flicks at the time?

Well almost, I actually live in Newcastle-under-Lyme which is right next to Stoke-on-Trent. Newcastle is an old market town and lot nicer on the eye than Stoke, a nice place for lunch or a coffee if you get the chance.
I have only ever been to the Victoria Hall for a jobs fair and not a concert so I can't comment on that. However despite being in the City Centre it is easy to get to as it's right next to the ring road and there is a car park right outside, as well as being across the road from the bus station which you will need if you come on the train as the train station isn't in the city centre.
We have no trams in Stoke unfortunatly so you are restricted to buses for public transport.
There are a number of things to do in and around Stoke, a few museums though most of them are factory tours and walk in centers of the pottery firms, if you like pottery then this is the place to be!
Hi Danny and Dazza, I have researched the Hotel info and for various reasons the Travel Lodge looks the best ( and its the cheapest i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif). I will wait until I have the tickets sorted and then hopefully book up. What went wrong yesterday Dazza two points dropped. My chances of seeing a Premiership Football game as well on the day are looking little less. i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif
The Travelodge in Talk isn't far from where I live.
Definitely two points dropped but fortunately, other results went our way and we are still top of the league, I don't want to tempt fate but I think four wins from the final six games I think will be enough for us. You watch though, we'll be away on the 18th. i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif
I have had an email this afternoon to say tickets for this concert have now gone on sale! It does not yet appear on the website but you should be able to buy them over the telephone. I havent tried myself, obviously, but the people who sort out the ticketing at the hall have said they are on sale.
Hi Everyone, I have booked a room online at the 'Travel Lodge' one of Dazza's recommendations; £39-00 if you book now. I was just about to click on 2 adults and changed my mind to the 3 option. The cost is the same as its the room not the number; presumably they will prepare the room for three sleeping .It will not therfore matter if we don't use the third option but If anyone is stuck for accommodation then this is a possibility ( If you can put up with us that is i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gifi.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif )
