How much are tickets for the crucible? I say I'm gonna go every year. Maybe next year... Is accommodation pricey at the time?
Depends when you go. You can get tickets for £10 or £20 for opening round sessions. (Even they vary, depending on whether it's afternoon or evening.)
Accommodation is scandalous. I got £300 for four nights staying this year, but I saw some hotels where it was more than £500 for the same times.
If price is a factor, the Premier Inn is probably the cheapest. I think Jurys Inn has some offers on, but you need to get in quick. And I've never stayed so can't vouch for quality.
If you can afford to go at all, even for one session, do. It's the best atmosphere at a sporting event I've ever been to. Just a must.
