I am really considering going this year. I would really love to bring the GS over but I dont think it would be up for such a long journey. Anyone I have spoken to that has been at Brighton says that it is a brill event. I would be up for going if there is an Irish crew going.

Plenty of Blues John.........Donie I have a dream that someday I will leave my house with a bag packed, jump on the scoot, head for the ferry in Dublin and spend a few days scootering along the southern coast of England before landing into Brighton for the NUTS weekend........someday........

I rarely say these things, but for once, unless the world ends, I will be attending Brighton this Augus, for suret. Myself and Baz choo from this site a friend of mine who introduced me to Mod in the 80's are going. We went to Isle of Wight in 2004 to see The Who and its a doddle. Flight into Gatwick, trains underneath airport will have you in Brighton in 50 minutes.

We've checked flights.....Aer Lingus at 88 euro all in (I refure to subject myself to Ryanair)........so lets do it and try and arrange a good crew to get over there. From all reports thru the year it is an absolute must.......I'm certainly thinking about every night before I go to sleep........I'm already picking out clothes........devil

John and Donie, we're in......so there is at least 5 people.....any other takers. (I'll post up flight details.....basically we're looking at flying out Sat morning and back Monday afternoon)

Collie ,I've been keeping an eye on NUTS website, nothing confirmed yet.. but everything is held in a place called Komedia. Tickets are available from june. Book early.
I've also been searching hotels etc you'd need to have them booked by march , as everyone says the accomadation goes quick

John.. did you Scotish Mates recommend any hotels that were near venue.  I know a lad from Clonmel who was at this last year so I might get in touch with him

I've been up on a few hotel websites and you can get a few reasonable hotels smack on seafront that are bang in the middle between day time and night time venues.

As John said, accomodation will fly.....I was checking NUTS website yesterday and they're already encouraging people to book accomodation now for the event......even months before DJ's  or bands are announced. Collie, NUTS always put on a top line up so I'm not too worried about the line up.

Would love to go, but no spare shillings this year. Was there last year, great buzz. Stayed in the Russell Guest House behind the Grand. The Komedia is a good venue, with Jump The Gun a few doors down, everything's within walking distance. Anyone going should book their rooms very soon.
 Don't forget to visit the alleyway in East Street.
