So this is definitely all-clear next weekend. The numbers are reasonably low-ish so it might end up with a small party back at mine.

Drivers bringing bedding and suchlike, probably your best bet would be to drop things off at my house first then head to the park and ride. PM me for my address.

Once you're at the park and ride, get the 400 bus into town. Ask to be told when you're at the Carfax tower (otherwise known as 'the main stop for central Oxford')- it'll look a lot like this when you get off http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=carfax+tow...,248.17,,0,3.56 The tower is the building with the clock on it... That's a tower. With a sign on the side saying 'Carfax Tower'.

I know buses are unfamiliar things to you drivers, but they are handy when you want to be able to drink!

As I said before, parking around my house is double-yellow lines until 4pm on Saturdays, for some unknown reason, and they are pretty hot on it. After that it's all-clear for the rest of the weekend, so if you want to go and pick up your car during the afternoon and take it to my house then you can do that. There is a centre of town car park near to the Carfax Tower, but I suspect that they charge approximately 50% the cost of the earth for a couple of hours parking, but if a few of you want to share a car to get to and from the park and ride then that would be a way to do it.

Now that my house is -1, I can probably offer floor space to more people as long as they don't mind the rather chilly kitchen. If it's too bad then there would also be floor space in my room probably... But that might be a bit odd.

I do have a single-person inflatable mattress that someone is welcome to use.

... And that's about as much information I can think of.

In summary - drivers with overnight things - drop your stuff off at my house then head out to the park and ride.
