I'm going to TAM London

TAM London 2010 is to be held at the Hilton London Metropole on 16th & 17th October. Online booking opened at 12:00 on Saturday, and unlike last year it appears that tickets are still available some 48 hours later (last year it sold out in an hour).

Sure, it's expensive (though not quite as expensive as we had been led to believe), but to date it's the only large-scale sceptical gathering held in the UK. For some people the cost of travel and accommodation will be more of an issue than the ticket price, but this year I've secured a room for three nights at a total cost only marginally more than the Metropole's rate for a single night. For this reason I didn't wait for the TAM London Metropole discount to be announced.

Last year's TAM London was an incredible event, but this year's looks likely to surpass it, judging by the great line-up of speakers:

I aim to be in London for four days, from Friday 15th to Monday 18th October, though that may change depending on what fringe events are available. Listen out for some TAM London themed Skepticule episodes soon...
