this event has already been held up north Gazhow helped organise it, although well attended by the northwest lot, it wasn't well attended by many others across the country

Cool Re: Venue for Forum event 2015

Moving the event would be pointless, it's like asking Michael Eavis to move Glastonbury to Bradford, or the organisers of the Edinburgh fringe comedy festival to move it to Southampton

If it aint broke . Beaulieu

Would love to come to something like this but its a really heavy drive from highlands Scotland i think the effort to bring the forum together is a great Idea what about the royl highland centre Edinburgh i t would have everything you need lol .

All kidding aside some where maybe borders or even Birmingham area would be worth a drive but further south its hard for us to get down .

I vote for birmingham area as well, or even the place where busfest is held at Malvern, or would that be too big a place, an alternative busfest I know a few lads that would like that idea

I think somewhere around the Staffordshire, Birmingham, Northamptonshire kind of area would be a good move if it is to stay there. If it keeps being a Beaulea every other year then I think it should go further north (maybe Cumbria/Northumberland/ Scottish Borders) to alternate. That would allow our Scottish friends to join in.

Hi All,

New to the scene - so can't comment on Beaulieu.
However moving about would be much better for the wider scene, in my opinion.
It would open up access for other traders not willing to travel as far and give many extra stories for round the campfire.
Just my tuppence

What an absolutely pointless thread this is, there is more chance of T4guy winning Mr cheerfulness UK 2015 or forever young being crowned Bumpkin King of Tact than Jimbob and The forum few changing the location of T4fest(its not Jimbobs event but it is really)

Strangly enough, I have got to agree with you on this one.
and I'll be very Suprised if the venue changes this year, I did hear from another Forum member that infact the Same venue had already been booked

Long Marston is a good suggestion, been there many a time for a Sprint event and the Bulldog back in the 90's.

Very picturesque location too.

Will drop them an enquiry
