Today we have confirmation that we can not use the venue through the night. The venue themselves have been behind the overnight, but the building is part of the station complex and, and it is they are not happy. Unfortunately we can not secure access between us and the rest of the station, if for no other reason that this is our emergency exit.
We now have three options…
- Stay with our current venue until 1am and forget the overnight.
- Stay with our current venue and find somewhere else to stay. This venue is likely to be a scout hall 10 minute drive away, and we will put on a mini bus or taxis.
- Move the entire BarCamp to another venue. We have been offered a backup venue in Sunderland, but we will have to use a different space on the Saturday and Sunday, and will need to swap over at 7am.
We need to make this decision quickly so I thought I would just throw it out there. There are 7 people who said they would only come if it was an overnight. What are your thoughts?
