National Express come into Broadmarsh, which is on the south side of town near the train station. If you're into damp dark bus stations as a way to welcome you to a city, you'll love it.

Best bet from there to Sumac is a tram from Station Street or Lace Market (there's signs from the bus station) towards Phoenix Park or Hucknall, getting off at Beaconsfield Street and turning right along Gladstone Street.

The main coach station in Nottingham is Broadmarsh, which is right on the other side of town for the Sumac, there's also the Victoria one, which is more convenient - where are you coming from?

ive just realised it might be better to book by coach instead.....does anyone know if the coach station is in the town centre?? (im thinking the chances are it is.....)

There's a facebook group for zinesters in the midlands/birmingham: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=59208919073&ref=search&am...!/group.php?gid=59208919073&ref=mf

Woah, that is a hideous url, hopefully it works.

Sounds like a good do, if it's at the Sumac I can't even use the excuse of it being too far away to get to ... although it is up a slight hill.

Is it going to be a room full of people being too shy to talk to eachother? I'll certainly be falling into that category, but at least I won't be the only one, even though the Sumac is a bit intimidating as it is!

13th sounds fine for me! Also, pennysweetprincess: I am also an ultra shy nerd. We can be ultra shy nerds together. :)
