Anyone trading at the LARP fair in feb?

Postby sally » Fri Dec 28, 2007 12:50 pm

I'm taking the Pointy Hat Emporium to the live roleplaying fair for the first time this year, I know several other traders from here went last year and I'm after advice on whether its ok to sleep in the van there or whether I really need to be looking for accomodation of some sort :D

Hi Sally,

It depends on the level of luxury you're looking for. The site is safe enough for sleeping in the van as it is patrolled throughout the night, however it is Barnsley in late February and therefore damn cold.

when is it btw


There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Fox and I will be there, though I've gone soft and we'll be staying at the B&B thirty yards walk away from the venue.

Good fish and chip shop at the top of the hill for evening food, though I take my own grub for Friday night.

See you there.

Jackie
