After quizzing a few stall holders at WDYTYA? Live 2014, I realised that they’d not been asked to return to Olympia in 2015, and that there were no ‘earlybird’ tickets for 2015’s show on sale.
After I checked, I found that Olympia’s diary was already full without the show. With Earls Court being demolished, and (thankfully) the show didn’t move to London Excel, rumours about Birmingham began to appear on social media.
It wasn’t until April, when my local Cambridgeshire Family History Society‘s newsletter announced the move, that all the rumours seemed to point in one direction – to Birmingham.
Today, in the announcement, along with the new venue confirmation, comes the offer of rail discount on Virgin trains.
There’s also another change – the dates have moved – 16th-18th April, rather than the usual February dates.
How does this change affect you? Will you have an easier journey? Does this now mean that you will be able to attend more than one day?
I still plan to attend all three again (I don’t know why I didn’t do that in previous years – it was so much more fun), but will need to work out the most efficient way to get there, as it may not be train.
See you there?
