What film does the trip take?
Any 35mm film (135-20, 135-24, 135-36). Black and White (Monochrome), Colour Print or Colour Transparency (Slide) film up to ISO400.
Make sure you set the film speed dial correctly. Always check that it is set correctly when you load a film. The dial is the forward one on the lens, marked ASA.
What does the marking ASA mean on the front dial on the lens?

ASA stands for American Standards Association and is the old way of indicting the film speed. This has now been replaced with ISO (International Standards Organisation). The good news is that the figures haven't changed. Therefore, for example, ISO400 and 400ASA are exactly the same.
What would be the best film to use for landscape photography?

For landscapes in sunnty or bright conditions, I would suggest using ISO 100 film. Transparancy (slide) film will give the best results. I use Fujichrome Velvia or Sensia. For prints, all films are excellent these days and it really depends upon your personal preferences.
For more general use, go for ISO 200 film as this will produce better results in dull weather. If you want to take a lot of pictures in low light ISO 400 will be more versatile, but remember, the higher the ISO value the poorer the image quality.
The best advice I can give is to put a film in and take some test shots. Make sure you set the camera for the correct film speed and that the aperture ring is set at "A" for Auto unless you are using a flash.
i am taking the trip 35 to a gig - Bill Wyman and his excellent band, and iI am in row B. (I don't have a flash by the way). Any tips on getting some cool retro pics of the old geezers?
The camera is from the right kind of era so it just feels right to use it for this!
Any tips gratefully received thanks folks

Use an ISO 400 film. Set the aperture ring at "A" and try taking picture. If it works - fine. If not, and the red flag appears in the viewfinder, set it to f2.8 (wide open). This will allow in the most light. Because the stage lighting will be variable, you should get some correctly exposed shots. At least you will get some shots!
