Tobi Twist Birmingham 4/5th march
« on: March 06, 2019, 11:08:03 AM »
Hope everyone had a nice time at the two day convention in Birmingham this week.
From the feedback it seemed to go over very well.


A few of the pictures from the event, it will take me a while to post
everything though so please keep popping back.


Tobi landed Sat morning so we went off to the Black Country Museum for the afternoon.

The coin, that has a story. We had a really lovely few hours at the museum.
Could have spent a little longer to be honest but it closed at 4pm which did seem a little early.

So going to leave and we get told we have to purchase a parking coin to exit.
A hidden charge of an extra £3.50, I was a little miffed at we have paid £17.50 each to get in.
Why do they not just add a £1 to every ticket. And yes I will go on the website to complain.

I just thought it was wrong, but Tobi and I did have a good old laugh over it.
