UK - This year's ABTT (Association of British Theatre Technicians) Theatre Show is hopeful that any tube strikes will be resolved and the show will not be affected by travel problems. But visitors to the event for theatre and staging technology should remember that there are plenty of other ways to get to the show venue in Victoria without relying on the Underground, say the organisers.

Many of the exhibitors at the 2011 Theatre Show are highlighting green and low-emission technologies, so visitors might want to show eco-solidarity by using foot power to get there. The Royal Horticultural Halls exhibition centre is only a short walk from Victoria mainline railway station, with Waterloo further along on the other side of the River Thames.

The Barclay's Cycle Hire scheme is another viable and eco-friendly way to get to the show. Mayor of London Boris Johnson wants the distinctive blue and silver bikes to be as common round London as black cabs and red buses and with many cycle docking stations outside the Royal Horticultural Halls, ABTT visitors can play their part in raising the profile of the 'Boris bike'.

Anyone deciding to make their way in by car should remember the Congestion Charge and that there are limited number of parking meters near the Halls.

More details on services and updates on the Tube strikes can be found at the Transport for London website: www.tfl.gov.uk.
