Does anyone want to come to see Barney with me?

I have two spare tickets as Dh can't come with us as he is working.
Birmingham NIA - in city centre near New Street station apparantly
Friday 28th - THIS WEEK
I don't yet have the tickets in my hand but am assured by Rachel (MN team) that they are on their way.
I am travelling there by train from Sheffield.
Is anyone interested (think of the child who would love it )?
If so, reply here or by e-mail to claireandrich(at)beeb(dot)net

Maisystar - as you were first to mention it they are yours if you wish. I know the train tickets price Sheffield return is £21. Can you e-mail to confirm?

Yeah! A taker - it'll be great Maisystar I am sure

NIA is on/behind Broad Street, near Five Ways, Edgbaston. New Street Station is at the end of New Street in the centre of birmingham - go with Coddy's advice and take a cab - a good 15-20 min walk WITHOUT KIDS!!! Have a great time.

But then have two unrestrained children in cab - don't like idea of that
My DD will be pushchair (I'll leave it in cloakroom like normally do) and think Maisystar's DS will be. I can do 20 minutes walk - hope MS can!

Ordered train tickets now and will arrive in Birmingham with tons of time to spare so no rush to get there so quite happy to walk Can always grab a cab back if pushed for time on way back though - cheers.

When I worked there I used to walk every day from New Street. It took about 5-10 minutes at max
There is a HUGE flight of steps leading up to the NIA but if you go round the back there is a disabled entrance they might let you into.
If you wanted to make a day of it the Sealife Centre is next door

Thanks Julie! Hopefully we will find it okay. I will remember to print map off the computer before we go.

Sorry, hula, I'd rather stick pins in my eyes. Kind offer though!
Hulababy · 26/05/2004 22:37
Everyone will be jealous when me and aisystar come back and say how great it all was, and what stars we are in the eyes of our DD/DS!!!

Hula, Hope you and Maisystar enjoy Barney, (assume that you are taking the littlies with you)
I agree with Marthamoo on this one
Now if it was Hi5 I woould be brawling on the ground with Maisystar for that spare ticket (Oh Nathan....be still my beating heart)
Hulababy · 28/05/2004 12:32
Well I am just about to set off for the train station to meet Maisystar. Will report back later
