So the countdown to the norths best convention is on again, have some plans in the line for next years TB, but does anybody have any idea which specific weekend in September it'll be next year, hoping to book a hotel imminently so I can make the full weekend this time.

Hawks, as soon as I get word of the convention grinding back into action I'll let you know.

Well thats a thing. And a pity, September was the perfect month for it, wasn’t sure at first but the last few years in the local and in late early Autumn made for a lovely con.

Um

From TB's twitter feed

"For anyone considering booking their Thought Bubble hotel now for this year please hold off until we make further announcements. I’ll be posting more info next week"

The dates seem to coincide with Leeds German Market, which usually takes place in the same square as the Thought Bubble main tent. Which 'suggests' some kind of alterations to the location.

Back to the Armories?
: Re: Thought Bubble 2019
: Steve Green 12 February, 2019, 11:08:37 AM
Don't know - was mentioned on fb that the cost of the hall had doubled at the Armouries, so unless there's been a renegotiation/change of heart...

Hmmm- think we need to just watch the skies and let the folk at TB sort themselves out...

Yep, Leeds isn't that big of a city so most places are walkable. It's more a case of if you want a hotel that's right on top of the event.

Now moving to Harrogate!!

And you beat me to it...

Interesting- but will the move rob TB of it's atmosphere and render it just another gig?

Time will tell.

Sadly, it means any tentative plans I had to go this year have been abandoned. It's a pain in the arse to get to by train, unfortunately.

: Hawkmumbler 21 February, 2019, 03:55:58 PM
It’s to much of a pilgrimage for me at this point not to at least give the new venue a try. Hotel booked alreafy.
: Re: Thought Bubble 2019
: Jim_Campbell 21 February, 2019, 04:18:19 PM
Just to be clear: I'm sure the TB folks haven't done this lightly and I have no particular attachment to either Leeds or the previous venues — I'm sure the event will be just fine in its new home. My issue is with some very specific deficiencies in the UK rail network that make the travel impractical.

John Wagner, Mick McMahon and Jock are already listed as guests.

And Dave Gibbons has tweeted that he's attending.
: Re: Thought Bubble 2019
: Colin YNWA 21 February, 2019, 05:01:36 PM
Well it's certainly an interesting change. Let's see how it changes things... if I can make it...

Mick McMahon! Dave Gibbons! Excellent!

Hotel booked- and from the booking.com site it appears there's been a lot of activity recently. Rooms are disappearing.

Just hope I get a table this year...
: Re: Thought Bubble 2019
: Bhuna 22 February, 2019, 11:14:56 AM
Table applications are open from this Monday 25th Feb at 10.00am until 10th March
Fingers crossed I'll have a table with Neil McClements again and will ask for a table next to Steve Austin, David Hitchcock and TB newbie Alan Byrom and y'very good self mate.
: Re: Thought Bubble 2019
: Bolt-01 22 February, 2019, 11:38:48 AM
Then I shall reciprocate.

Fingers crossed.

Ticket booked. I will miss the Leeds location, but McMahon and Wagner on the guest list already makes this a must.

Table applied for. Fingers crossed.

Ooh! I have lots of family in Harrogate and Knaresborough so I'll make an effort to get to this.

It looks like tables confirmation emails are going out. PigDog Press with Neil McClements will be there again!!
