Travelling to Loughborough Uncon

I've finally booked my flight to East Midlands Airport. The website warns about reduced lanes, speed restrictions and diversions around East Midlands Airport including the A453 and M1. Can anyone tell me if this is going to add much time to the bus journey? Getting there won't matter but I'll be travelling back to the airport on Monday morning in the rush hour.

It depends what bus you are taking as they take different routes but you'll have a little fallout even if your bus doesn't go on that route from commuters trying to avoid both of those roads.

Going by car?

I will be driving up from Northampton; if anyone wants to car share please let me know!

I've just taken a peek at Eurostar options and I must say I'm tempted to come to the Unconvention. :-)

Rochester and I are flying from Glasgow to Nottingham East Midlands on Friday morning. we will catch the bus to Loughborough and will arrive at 1pm.

I will be catching a bus or train to Manchester on Sunday afternoon (anyone driving to Manchester by car????) and will fly from there on Monday morning back to Germany.

I'll be arriving around 12pm (every flight I've got to East Midlands has been late/cancelled - I used to do the journey regularly for work). We might bump into each other at the bus stop.

I am on a bus from the airport to London now, and will chance to train there. I am sitting here with the good feeling you get when you run for the bus, get there with a one minute margin and get the last available seat:-) Maybe I can take an earlier train. Looking forward to the uncon!

I'm on the train from London to Loughborough too! Maybe we're on the same one.

Maybe we were, but I saw this too late to look for you. See you soon!
