New Back in Time Live - Sep 15th 2013, Manchester

Post by Chris Abbott » 17/04/2013 - 14:10



Tickets: http://bit.ly/11cOnpI

Back in Time Live is back in Manchester on September 15th, in co-operation with Retro Revival, SceneSat and the Superbyte 2013 Festival!

Great live music, Oscar awards for gaming and general SID awesomeness... and more! Even if you can't make it, the event will be live-streamed on SceneSat Radio.

Watch legends such as Jeroen Tel and 8-Bit Weapon do their 8-bit thing on stage!

Compete for "Oscars" on Pitstop II, IK+, BMX Simulator, Microprose Soccer and Hypersports!

Jam with remixers and musicians in our music space, where Chris Abbott will be playing remix tracks and bits to jam to. Can you pass the Lightforce riff challenge?

Spot Thing on a Spring during the day for entry into a prize draw! Guest star and event mascot "Thing on a Spring" (the only remaining plushie of his kind) will be attending complete with handlers John and Stephanie. If you see him (careful, he's small!) you get a free ticket to a draw for one-off Thing on a Spring merchandise!

Bid in our charity auction, where one-of-a-kind items such as the master copies of the Back in Time CDs, a one-of-a-kind Sid-Synth-Guitar, a fully loaded Quadrasid, signed sheet music (TBC), and the "last-in-the-world" copies of out of print CDs.

There will also be CD shops.

NOTE: while the acts are confirmed, and we're trying to make it as awesome as possible, we can't guarantee the appearance of any person or group at the event due to, y'know, life stuff.

All proceeds are going to a charitable cause guaranteed to warm the heart. More details on request.

The event is organised by Paul "Danceaway" Hesford, Chris "C64Audio" Abbott and Chris Wilkins. Visit his Retro Revival event May 18th/19th if you get the chance!

Bear in mind that the venue is actually in Oldham and not Manchester - there is a difference, you know.

Anyway, a few things to bear in mind, especially if you're travelling from distance or even planning to stay in Manchester and commute there:
  • The quickest buses from central Manchester are the 181 and 182 buses, which heads down Oldham Road, Broadway and turns right down Middleton Road with a bus stop very close to the venue (almost opposite). However, the last bus back on a Sunday night is at 10.29pm so a 10pm finish might be easier for people getting home.

    Full timetable here: http://www.tfgm.com/journey_planning/Ro ... %20X82.pdf
  • There is hotel accommodation close(ish) to the venue, one of the cheapest being the Travelodge Oldham Chaddeton, which is at the end of Broadway - it's a short(ish) walk to the venue from there. For those of you not used to them, they're cheap and cheerful chain of hotels which are functional for crashing out. If you want something a bit nicer, there's a Premier Inn just outside of Oldham town centre but it is more expensive.
  • If you're planning to stay in Manchester, there's lots of choice including Premier Inn and Travelodge as mentioned above, but also the likes of Ibis, Novotel etc too. If you want something a little different, Roomzzzzz apartment hotel is maybe more the thing where you rent apartments for the night instead of a hotel room..
  • For those flying into Manchester, there's direct trains to Manchester Piccadilly train station from Manchester Airport, or alternatively the 43 or 105 buses also take you to Manchester Piccadilly bus station.

Now that I'm slowly thinking about organising how to get there... if I chose to stay at said Chaddeton Travelodge, then the best travel suggestion is train to Manchester Piccadilly, and then a bus to the venue?

Mayhem, yes this is the best way and as Waz states above the best bus is either 181 - 182 which you can catch not far from the train station,
head towards Piccadilly gardens mate.

Look forward to meeting you again on the day :wink:

In my case, it will probably have to be train up on the Saturday, and go home on the Monday. I'll look at how much trains cost *shudder*

Everything's booked now (event ticket, hotel, train), so I guess you will be seeing me there ;)

(even managed to get the train tickets for £25 which was a massive discount from when I first looked)
