This will be a road trip (anyone got a car?) to the UK Maker Faire in Newcastle. The event is on Saturday and Sunday 12/13th but with a UK Hackspace folk meet up on the evening of Friday 11th.
Date 11/12/13 March 2011
Organisers No one really
The train takes 3.5hrs and cheapest tickets I can find start at £77.80 (!!) per person.
The other options are:
Take a couple of cars - Any offers??? [john c] I can take my car and 2-3 others
Hire a people carrier - Seven seater from: http://www.thrifty.co.uk/ is £126 for fri-sun obviously plus petrol
Hire a mini bus - 17 seater minibus from: http://www.thrifty.co.uk/ is £288, any ideas of cheap minibus?...
I have booked a 6 bed room in a hostel for the nights of 11/12th at a cost of £240 for both nights. If we can get 6 people in then it will be £20 per person per night, otherwise it will be a bit more.
