So if I leave a deposit for my kids I'm technically paying up front in full for them?

The kids deposit is £10 rather than £25. Not sure if that was covered in the article.

The venue is Herts County Showground, a 5 minute drive from Junction 9 of the M1 so it should be easily accessible for everyone. It's fairly northern for us too, being past Watford.
I thought "the North" started after Watford Gap services, as that's where roadsigns start saying "The North"

We’ve been having that discussion in the office today.
The joke has always been that ‘The North’ starts at Watford Gap services, but for many in London, anything beyond Watford is ‘The North’.

Have you tried contacting The Lettuceheads who have previously entertained us at BTaP and count amongst them at least one PHer?

It was cancelled due to very poor ticket sales.

I always thought it was a bit weird, and wondered how many people actually went.
