>> have phoned Elaine and sent her an email asking if it would be possible

>> If not, it might make sense to have the first screening on Sunday
>> coinciding with their paid comedy + song event, thus providing an
>> alternative for people who can't pay the Â£10/Â£7/Â£5 for the Bookfair
>> Their entertainment starts at 6pm. As Michael Albert from Z magazines
>> starts at 3.30pm as the last speaker, we shouldn't screen the film
>> 5/6 pm anyways.
>> Then it might make sense to use the CWU if they are still happy with us
>> being there, because it is closer to the Out of the Blue event space?
>> Though the entertainment takes place at the Bongo Club.
>> And then have the Forest event the day after on Monday?
>> Or to ask the Newcastle&Sunderland/Aberdeen people if they want to do a
>> screening on Sunday?
>> cheerio Ulla
