  1. Hi Jenny,

    Thanks for all the posts about the WordCamp event, it’s sponsors and organisers. I’ll be travelling into Manchester from Buxton by train – is it essential to make registration? Would it be inconvenient for me to arrive at around 11am?

    Many thanks!


    1. Hi Dave,

      Turning up late would just mean that you miss a talk or two. We will have someone on registration for the majority of the day or find someone who has a Yellow WCMCR t-shirt on.

      If you are getting the Buxton to Blackpool North train, it might be easier for you to get off at Oxford Road.

      Looking forward to meeting you!
