    I will be there on the 24th of may.

    Can't wait as it will be my first trip to see the NRM.

    Anyone else going?

    Those of us who were there, both at the various "ends" and at the opening of the NRM itself, will be interested to see what today's politically correct interpreters have to say about what we got up to - and how wide of the mark it is.

    The sociological side of 1968 was up there with the events.

    It's worth remembering that the NRM's top man "was there."

    Question

    Do students count as concessions for this event?

    And a point to note, if you only want to buy one ticket, its more expensive to advance book than pay on the day! All down to an unbelievable £1.65 postage charge!

    Okay, following an email from the NRM I can confirm concessions are for under 16s and over 60s only, and also carers but not the cared for.

    Have been advised that tickets are cheaper via ticket web in advance (unless you only want one in which case postage makes it more expensive!)

    At least that list dosn't call 49 a Hunslet or a "J94"!

    I can see some people getting very tired of telling people that it's neither!
