It's ridiculous, isn't it? I live less than 100 miles from Birmingham, about 90 minutes drive, but going to an evening event there by train is not an option as there's nothing after about 10 pm. Same applies to other major cities within a similar distance. The only exception is London which does offer a train after midnight (but not on Saturdays!) and it's a stingy three-carriage effort which is always jam-packed.Dame of Mercia wrote: ↑Tue Oct 09, 2018 12:18 pmI don't live in Birmingham but if there was an afternoon showing of the play I might have been able to get back to my hometown while public transport was still running. I have overnighted at Birmingham New Street Station some years ago and it's not necessarily something I want to repeat.
I'm going to have to pass on that play, GrandMaester. It will be showing in Manchester but the tickets were very expensive I thought and only about 4% were left and the other venues were too far away or difficult to get to. Still, maybe there will be a revival sometime.
