    My apologies also - I have an unexpected work commitment. If there's a recording, I'd be very interested in snagging a copy!

    Anyone know about good parking options for this venue?

    • Paul G.

      I'm all for saving the planet and everything, but that's not helping. :-P Since I already need my car to get to and from work, adding a public transport journey in the middle of 2 car journeys is only going to add latency and cost.

      Hi Paul - you could try the parking meters on Wickham Terrace or Albert Street surrounding Wickham Park and King Edward Park. Alternatively, I know a some folks in the office get lucky with free street parking further into Spring Hill e.g. Berry St, Sedgebrook St, Bartley St. Given the time of day I would expect a few more empty spaces. Cheers
