Does anyone know of any pubs etc that are doing a pre-show for Cheltenham gig?

We (The Emperials) are all coming up from Bristol for the night. We'd be up for playing/sorting a pre-show if there is one. I'd imagine aftershow will be a bit flat being a Monday night.

I don't know the racecourse so not sure if there is any venues/pubs near by that would work?

Anyone? Smile

I'm going to the Cheltenham gig with a few mates, but as we've never been to the racecourse area before, no idea what the local pubs are like.

Anyone recommend any?

If there is a pre or aftershow party, let us know, even if it is a Monday!

p.s bought tickets as soon as announced, but still haven't appeared. How can ticket agencies justify keeping tickets until last minute when they 've had your money and interest for a year!!!!?????? Evil or Very Mad

Looks like a quiet night then.

Subtone seems to be the only venue thats not a country pub, but seems quite a distance.

I can only tell you from what I know when I've been to the races at Cheltenham that there are no pubs near the racecourse - we always drink before and after in the Town Centre - fair old walk (about 30 mins) before you come to the first boozer !!

I'll be at Cheltenham. Don't know any of the pubs there, but don't be fooled by its posh exterior, it has all manner of evils bubbling under its regency-style surface... mwuahahahahaaaa!!! Wink

I've always fancied having a butcher's round GCHQ - for some reason the government won't let me.

Cheltenham racecourse is absolutely HUGE!

Make a note of where you park your vehicle cos you'll have a job finding it in the dark and best of all...

The Centaur venue is a smart new conference style building at the front of the racecourse. Anyone know who is supporting?

Who's the support group must be the most asked question regarding the tour.

Staines, there's 2 support bands, not that i've actually been to any gigs.

Cheers for that, doesn't seem the Cheltenham gig is creating much excitement. Not sold out yet but i'm sure the Specials will put on a good show. Is anyone meeting up anywhere?
