Booked my ticket, and Pittville for my daughter and me. If the cottage has fallen through (and it looked lovely but I'm not up for sharing rooms - anyone sharing with me needs ear-protectors), then is the Pittville Posse still a possibility?

As I love the panicky feel that deadlines approaching give me [Razz] , our tickets were booked yesterday afternoon. The mother-in-law obviously enjoyed herself enough to want to come again, and we hope to be persuading others from the church to come along (but they won't camp - wimps [Roll Eyes] ) Never mind Christmas, roll on Greenbelt!

Our tickets were almost booked yesterday but we like the adrenaline of late booking [Biased]

Actually, there was a big issue with the online booking thing, so they extended the deadline to take in today as well.

But I am pleased so say, we have tickets booked now to ... something which I wasnt going to do, but have thrown caution to the wind

Mmm, I tried to book online yesterday, but there were problems with the site. I phoned the office and they said they'd be extending the deadline for online bookings.

So I've tried again this morning, and although the site looks all right, I've failed twice.

Anyone else having trouble?

Filled in stewarding form for my 10th GB at the festival last year, I'm another of those strange people in yellow jackets.

For anyone willing to work and wanting to save on ticket cost stewarding actually makes the festival more fun! [Cool]

Still can't book online.

I'd quite like to as I save 40 quid!

Do I like that idea enough to try to do it by phone. Can I overcome my deep inbuilt aversion to doing anuy business involving money by phone? Still haven't called the insurance people about the leaks and drains in the flat. But Greenbelt office are nice people, not like Evil Insurance Paymentavoiders. But they will be hassled and full up today because of this very thing, so phioneing them wil add to their troubles and make them grumpy.

Email is so much easier...

Scary to be trying to book an adult ticket for my daughter.

But then if I fail to book today and she signs on the dole before next August we get more money to pay for it and she gets a concession...

Do I have the right to expect that she will either be a student (and entitled to the concession) or on the dole (ditto) or working (and can pay her own way)????

Hmmmm.....

Very relieved, having read all this, that I was organised (*cough*) enough to book my tickets on Monday.

Logistically it'll still be a bit complicated, as I'll be abroad doing my fieldwork and will be flying back to the UK specially for GB, before flying back out for another month to finish it off. Oh well, it all adds to the adventure [Smile]

I'd love to go, would like to be in the cottage if there's still space (and would be happy on a pull out bed)... But would be coming over from France and am currently awaiting a new bank card, plus it looks like I've missed the cheap bookings, grrrr!

The plan at the moment is to bring it and see if we can find a space near enough to the main area to make it worthwhile. If it's as far away as we were this year, it's as quick to walk back to Pittville...!

Just had a look on the website - only Hardwick now showing on the booking form, so it looks like Pittville has already sold out.

Emma - you'll just have to rough it like some of the rest of us.

In the mist of the madness which was the end of October I did somehow manage to book my tickets, but have realised I've forgotten to send of the proof of consession entitlement. Does anybody know what happens if you don't get that in within the 7 days they say?

Tractor Girl - don't panic, I did exactly the same thing last year, and then I just realised this morning that my proof has been sitting in my bag all week waiting for me to buy a stamp [Roll Eyes]

Last year I just phoned the GB office and they said it was fine for it to be a couple of days late - they were remarkably relaxed about it. I think they appreciate being told that it's on its way though.

So, like you, I'll be phoning them tomorrow then off to the post office. I was so proud of myself for remembering to book in time, so now I've done the same thing as last year I feel a bit silly.

But - yay! I'm going to GB! Hooray!

Nope.

Been there. Done that. Have 1001 reasons why it's not what I will be doing in 2007 [Smile] Proper camping - yes, festival 'camping' - no. Will value sleep and showers too muc, so will be BnB hunting I think!

Sorry not been back to this for a couple of months. The past two years I forgot to send my daughter's concession proof off until a couple of weeks before the event, resulting in us having to pick the tickets up at the gate. This year I booked my ticket and the accommodation and she's booked her own ticket. And has also so far forgotten to send off her concession information... But they've never actually refused us the concession because of it. They'll probably wish I hadn't said that...

Now now, Emma, you know you want to come camping... Think of all the fun you can have in a muddy field in August... Think of the warm tent, the first cup of tea from the camping stove, the invigorating walk to the toilets, the washing in cold water, the morning fry-up...

Come and join the dark side (but bring a torch so you can find your way back!)

It's a complex calculation, involving:

(a) day of the festival
(b) position on campsite
(c) location when lavatorial service is required
(d) whether a no 1 or no 2 is called for
(e) resistance to nasty smells
(f) alimentary canal's reaction to festival food

There's more than one set of loos in the grandstand area... The trick is to find the least popular venues and go to the loos nearest to them.

Blimey, we should shouldnt we! Will add a different flava to my Greenbelt if I try to be semi organised at least once wont it.

Well, lets go for it, but perhaps go in for the whole day, time and place a lil nearer the time, coz I aint never gonna remember [Smile]

An interested question from an overseas shippie (hope it is ok to ask): What is Greenbelt?
the only Greenbelt in my area is a gigantic parking lot at the end of one of the DC metro lines.

Regarding the toilet debate. What are you guys using the rest of the year for? Everything post-GB leading up to the next one is training for your bladder and colon for the next years festival. With a bit of hard work you could make the whole weekend without having to go once.

Indeed a hearty student diet, lacking "ruffage" will soon sort this out. Toilets, pfah, who needs them...

Though anyone thinking of not using the facilities provided should remember that there are teams monitoring the drainage ditches and the festival gets fined if there's run-off. More likely an issue for no. 2s (I know they had excess bateria a few years ago, and closed some of the portaloos, I'm not sure about nitrates), but it's not good if you can help it.
