Peter Carroll asked if 'Dogs' are allowed into the show, UWE policy is Guide or handicap assistance dogs allowed only.
The hall can become crowded at times so it may make a dog uncomfortable being possibly trodden on.
Other question is Bus times from Parkway, they are planed to depart 'AFTER' trains have deposited passengers at the station, as there maybe Railtrack work over the weekend in conjunction with the Electrifying of the line to Cardiff, bus time cab not be precise.
