I did not add myself yet because of many unknown variables in the
equation, I don't know the dates or even if I can attend at all.  I
will give a shout here if I can go in the end, I will likely go by

In my experience ferries do not get very expensive even close to the
dates (e.g. even booking within the same week), the price depends
mainly on the days and times of the day.  I never paid more than £50,
often quite less than that, even booking 2 days before.  This is not
to discourage you to book now, just a general comment :-)

The eurotunnel train is a bit more expensive and gets quite expensive
close to the date (£200+ sometimes), but booked in advance can be £80
or possibly less, it's ~1h instead of ~2.5h (with waiting times
included), I don't know if you're considering it.  It's more boring
than the boat, but during

BTW, I didn't check in detail but google maps tells me 9h+, not 7h30
as the wiki says.  7h46 is the first suggestion, going by train all
the way.
