We haven't been for 5 years now.
But two of the other things we do every year are coming to an end (for us at least) and so we're considering it again.

But it really depends if their 'seating for the disabled' situation has improved.

There's seating on the balcony in the ballroom but my mate found it hard work in the other venues.

Got my ticket on thursday when I arrived.

Yes. Our problem exactly.
The ballroom balcony seats were only available at some sets and closed for others.
The advice from the staff for getting a seat in the other venues was 'ask someone to let you have their seat and explain that you are disabled' to which the seated people's reply was usually 'Fuck off, it's not MY problem'. Nice 'punk unity' in action.
Asked the venue if we could bring in our OWN small, foldable chairs and were told we couldn't 'cause it would be a 'security risk'.

If none of that has improved then we still won't go.
I can 'lump it' and put up with achy, arthritic legs for a while but Xa has MS and MUST have access to seating.
We spent too much time having to go back to our hotel so she could sit down and rest.

I think the seats upstairs at the Empress are now up for all gigs in there, plus this year there was the Ballroom which has loads of seats, although I think that may not be in the line up next year.

Well, technically, two original Skids (I know that Alan is a bit of a stickler for this sort of thing!).

Yes, well - less posing and fewer guitar mistakes from the Watsons would be nice.
