John G is thinking of having a get together at his place on the Friday evening.

As for the walking tour / makespace tour overlap - I'm going to look into booking another walking tour earlier in the day, or moving the existing one if nobody minds.

If you're planning to come and haven't booked yet please do so soon. I have to book and pay for the events and I'm not sure the final numbers are going to match the earlier survey.

I haven't been able to make a hotel group booking because I can't be sure we'll hit the numbers required. Instead I recommend everyone book at the Travelodge Cambridge Central which is basic but good value.

https://www.travelodge.co.uk/hotels/255/Cambridge-Central-hotel

At this moment the rates are:

Friday: 61
Saturday: 113
Sunday: 46

The higher Saturday price implies its filling up so I'd book soon. If it does sell out I can suggest other nearby hotels.

The hotel has only very basic catering but there are several restaurants and coffee shops on the same plaza.

The minibus will pick up and drop off nearby to the Travelodge. It's a 30 minute walk from the hotel to Makespace, or 10 minutes in an Uber or taxi. Parking is 7 for 24 hours with validation.

Slashdot linked to this story today, possibly relevant to attendees of this year's empeg meet: Three Geeks Rescue a 50-Year-Old IBM 360 Mainframe From an Abandoned Building.

Less than a day now! wink

In Cambridge, checked into the Travelodge.
Wet outside, but looks to be clearing up shortly.
Bit of a mix for The Meet (wet morning, nicer afternoon),
and pretty good outlook for punting on Sunday.

Of course, this is Britain, so weather subject to frequent changes. smile
