Yay. Thanks for taking the initiative on this John, it's a great idea
and I think we can come up with something great in the time we have!

I'd take a step back and ask "Why?"

Why are we looking to schedule an UbuConUK ? What do we want to achieve?

Sounds good. If it can be after the release that would be preferable in
my opinion. We could get a bunch of CDs pressed in time for the event.
Given Hardy is an LTS release this could be a good time to get a big wad
of CDs to dish out.

I'd go for something more central like Birmingham / Manchester. London
has the benefit of transport links from everywhere, the downside that
things are more expensive and it's considerably further from various
parts of the UK.

Sounds like a plan.
