Looks a good little show, and I've always fancied doing this one, but it has to be pointed out your 'north of Barcelona' is a long way, some 60 kilometres up the coast and is just about at Lloret de Mar, which puts a whole different complexion on the weekend away! I have no objection to a weekend in Lloret de Mar of course, but the old wander through the beautiful city, down the Ramblas, and around the marina to the beach that the show once was is now something else completely.

I'll have a look at flights nearer the time, it could be a sweet end to the season.
its time to kick the tyres and light the fires

True enough that is now a ways away from the center, though still a direct train ride from Plaza Catalunya. With the show finishing at 14:00, still plenty of time to hop on a train and amble round the city. Hotels in Santa Susanna are generally far more affordable than the offerings in Barcelona, which for foreign visitors is certainly a plus :)

A word of caution on this event, it will no longer take place at Santa Susanna or over the coast. Hopefully the Event Organiser and Local Goverment will be able to move it to Llieda Airport. Still awaiting final confirmation. :hide:
