London to Derry for Frank?

Post by reediekris » Mon Aug 05, 2013 11:39 pm

I'm moving to London from NYC in September, and barring Frank announcing any new dates closer in, do any of you lovely people know how easy it would be to get to Derry for his Sept set? Because obviously getting to see the Souls play one more time in 2013 would be fantastic.

I think there's a few of us doing this (the line up is pretty unmissable).

I'll be flying (mainly to save time) but having Googled it is also possible by train or bus - although it didn't seem any cheaper to me.

See you there!

I'm going to come over for this show. I'm stopping in London and Dublin to see Jim Lockey. Assuming a train from Dublin to Derry

Dublin to Derry by train is scenic (the latter part) but it takes a long time as you have to change trains in Belfast.
Bus is quicker and cheaper. There are regular busses from Busarus bus station.

As well as Derry there's the Luxembourg option on Sat 21st Sept. Or a very good reason to visit Paris Wed 25th Sept. see his live shows page.

Hiya, I have found you flights with Ryanair going out of Stansted. I don't know where Derry airport is though. Stansted is easy peasy to reach from London, just hop on the Stansted Express, at Liverpool Street Station it's about 40 minutes and goes right into the terminal building.
A word of caution though, Ryanair are a budget airline.....

I'm looking at this again to see if I can go. Made it more difficult by buying tickets to the Xtra Mile gig the day before.

No :( unfortunately not, I hope you manage to make it! Just be aware Ryanair may fly in to some random airport near Derry so check that out first. Can't recommend them as a good travelling experience, I don't think you are allowed to take hold luggage and a carry on bag has to be a certain size...but I am not sure. I haven't flown with them for ages. Good luck!
