The venue is the City Campus university building next to the river in central Newport (if you jump in a taxi do NOT head to Caerleon…that would be the wrong campus!).
Please bring along a printed copy of your eventbrite ticket or on your smartphone app. If you have neither, then please make sure you have ID to prove you are how you say you are. People pretending to be someone else will be forced to live in Newport. Forever.
The venue is about a 10 min stroll from the railway station and less from the bus.
Here is the official #Port80 Foursquare list of stuff in Newport, that should help you find your way around.
Time’s winged chariot
As you can see from the running order for the day, registration is open from 08:15. We’ve got a lot of people to get through the doors so the #Port80 cherub would appreciate you turning up early.
We kick off proceedings at 09:00 sharp.
The canteen will be open for lunch but please feel free to bring your own if you prefer – there’s other venues* on the Foursquare list (* chip shops).
If you need a taxi:
- 01633 216216
- 01633 271971
- 01633 253253
(if you are staying in a hotel, maybe use the #port80 Twitter tag to help find someone else who’s staying there to share a cab to the venue)
The Evening Before The Event (the 9th)
Errr…I’ve not organised anything for that but, if I had a few hours to kill, I’d probably head over to Ye Olde Murenger ale house and
get plastered drink sensibly as there is a conference the next day. If you’re around in the day on the 9th and want somewhere to work; try Indycube.
The After Show Party
From 19:00 after the conference we’ll be at Revolution in Newport – we have the upstairs bar. You will need your lanyard etc to get in so please bring those with you. Oh, and we do have a limited supply of free drinks vouchers and those will vanish on a first come first serve basis. So, if you want a drink on the cherub, better turn up on the dot.
