I've never been to an event like this, so excuse me if it's a silly question, but, would basses be likely to come at a discount at something like this, or do people try stuff out and then just order it online cheaper when they get home?
A bit of both. Some stuff is a little discounted. I think most of it about the same price, but there is plenty to try

Got a reminder email just now. It said early bird discounts end at midnight. Went to book tickets and Earlybird sales had ended. Probably won't go now. It is probably really well organised but for me it is 100% cods up to date.

I see Nik Huber guitars will be there. Chances of a Krautster II with a Bigsby at a massive discount?

Well, I've only found out about it by reading this thread today; It might be worth strolling in on the Saturday, though.

Wish I lived a bit closer to London when things like this come up.

Is it just me who thinks it means something other than bass guitars when they see LBGS? :huh:
I thought I was getting 20% off a roger from Roger!

Funnily enough when I lived in Oxfordshire it was a real pain to get to, but from York it's much easier via the fast train. Go figure.

And yes, me too :o

I usually stay in Walton on Thames and get the train up from there. Looks like there is going to be engineering works which will make it impossible to get the overground from Clapham Junction to Olympia! Bugger.

I'm now looking at perhaps staying in Richmond. Train from there to Wilseden Green and then overground.

Just thought I would mention it in case anyone else is thinking of getting the overground from Clapham Junction.

I'll be there on the Saturday! Whoop :)

I think this is the first year I'm actually travelling alone (so far) and don't have to run away for a gig, or to pick up my son, or indeed to take him somewhere other than the London bass show haha. He survived an hour last year...
