Yay - hotel looks good and I notice that they're 'in discussion with the hotel [bars] regarding stock'.... :shifty: Looks like they're trying to avoid the supply and demand probs we had with the Hilton :lol:

There are pubs aplenty within yards of the hotel, so no worries about that :D

I might not be able to go, but I'll probably book then cancel later if need be.
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

Have a look at this last bit about 'support' registration (last parag). Apparently it's a way of reserving a ticket at the discount applicable when you purchase support membership (for £25)

I have no idea if going is financially sensible, I suspect not after all I have to employ extra people to work in the shop. At least this time it isn't a national holiday so I don't have to pay them double time (last year was seriously expensive). However I'm going to book and if it doesn't make sense next year then I will pull out and sell my membership but hopefully I will be there.
