No idea, my wife pays them in.

Anyway, I haven't announced the entry fee yet (waiting for the venue to finally tell me this year's charges) so don't rush to write me a cheque.

Probably train from Bristol to Newport, then taxi from Newport to Usk. Unless you want to hire a car, in which case it is about 50 mins drive from Bristol airport to Usk.
