Too late - the bar has already stocked up with Green Chartreuse and Kwak! (Oh, how I wish it were true in respect of the latter!)

What is parking like at the venue? Plenty of spaces?

Is it possible to park in the streets nearby?

John - loads of free on-site parking - I'll circulate a map nearer the time

How about the public transport links Alan? How far is it from the city centre?

It's only about two miles. Buses that go along the Pershore Road (from memory something like the 45 and 47) depart from city centre and stop at Tally Ho.

Well, it was the 45, 47 (and I think 41) from B'ham city centre when I used to go religiously for the cricket at Edgbaston (which is on the other side of the road), but that was in the 70s :blush:

The bus to catch from the City Centre is the 45 or 47 both of which go down the Pershore Road with a bus stop just outside the Tally Ho Centre after the lights on the Middle Ring Road. Edgbaston cricket ground to the left.

Arriving by train at New Street or Moor Street the best bus stop is....

From New Street Station exit into New Street. Cross New Street and look for a 45/47 bus stop at the bottom of Corporation Street on the right ahead of you.

From Moor Street follow signs to New Station and look for New Street en route. Leaving Waterstones behind you head towards the Town Hall (but not that far) and spot HSBC on your left before seeing the ramp just past it to New Street Station. Cross the road just before the junction with Corporation Street on the right and on the latter look for a 45/47 bus stop just round the corner.

Taxis outside both stations

Many thanks Alan. I'll have to cut out and keep your post if I manage to come.

My earlier post seems to have got lost amongst the joking! Will there be a list of attendees available?

(I think we all know Bruce is going!) :lol:

Sorry, Roger - it did get lost!

Yes, I'm intending circulating a list - in fact I'll post it here in a few days - if anyone wants their attendance to be a surpise, please PM me and I'll leave you off the list

I'm still considering Bruce's application to attend! :P

Is the entrance off the main Pershore Rd, or the little lane at the back leading from the Edgbaston Rd?

At long last, the list of those who are going - 1 or 2 are yet to confirm 100%, and there are half a dozen or so not on this list who are making up their minds, but this is how things currently look - 41 are confirmed for dinner on Saturday evening. Still plenty of space for those interested

Can I suggested that you pin a Topic giving joining and other essential information about the event on the top of this Forum without any option to reply.

This would avoid the chance of people missing essential information amongst the welter of other postings.

Do you see what I mean? It would not of course stop others from joining in using the original Topic.

The other option of course is individual emails or PMs to those who have signed up.

Regards

Martin

Ah yes, I remember!

It was lost in my mind in the welter of other postings of other postings in THIS place.

See you there.

Is Ayesha going to have to change her name again?

Her maiden name was Guest.

It could get a bit confusing, especially for her husband.
