OK, it's a very easy route from Manchester. Make your way from where so ever it is you're leaving (very easy for me from Eccles, straight down the M62 :-D). Continuez tout droite, until you arrive at Birmingham, where you should peel off down the M42 for a few junctions. Take the exit and travel south down the M40. I personally come off at the A404 at Wycombe, but you can carry on down the M40 as far as the M4 (bit too close to Slaaaarrrrgggghhhhh! for me :-D). If you take the A404, keep on going down it (straight road, more or less) until you reach the M4. Take the motorway East (towards London) as far as J10, which is the A329(M). Make sure you turn towards Bracknell, not Reading. The rink is off the first exit, and should be signposted. However.... come off at the first exit and take the first left from the roundabout. You should drive past Mr Nike's beautiful (!) Hotel, and reach a mini-rounabout. Turn right at the roundabout (onto John Nike Way), and the John Nike Leisuresport Complex is at the bottom of the hill on the right.
For getting tickets, it shouldn't be a problem buying them on the door, the Hive rarely sells out (and I certainly don't expect us to sell out against the Storm, at any rate). However, if you're worried, as someone else has said, you can phone (01344) 860033 and book tickets. Just one point though, the £6.50 tickets are the bench tickets downstairs. These are partially obscured views (slight underexageration!) because the away fans always sit on the side (despite having an entire half of the rink dedicated to them), so you have to try and see through the AV room, and there are pillers everywhere too. The upstairs tickets are for plastic seast rather than benches, and don't have pillers everywhere. I think they're 2 quid dearer, but I never sit up there (nowt wrong with a piller if you ask me!), so I'm not certain.
Cheers, Alex the Rabid Bee
