Second ever DERBY Bash!

Alright you rowdy lot! the votes are in and the date/venue decided.
We will be upstairs in the Bless, a function room all of our very own, complete with bar! There will be real ales available from downstairs, and plenty of room for hijinks and balloons.

The music downstairs is pretty varied, and refreshingly unpoppy, but we don't have that piped up to our domain so we have a clean slate.
We're open to suggestions, especially in these early days, as to what to do for entertainment. If anyone fancies playing a bit of music or has other crackin' ideas then leave a message on here or send a gaz to myself or the utterly lovely Professor Kenny Martin. Otherwise it's going to be a cd player and whatever humorous (god, not the horses, NOTTHEHORSES!) mixes b3tans bring along! In theory we can't be 'too loud', but in practice I get the impression we can get away with a fair amount as long as we don't completely take the piss.

The Bless itself is walkable distance from the train station, but can be a bit of a pain to find if you don't know the area. As with last year, there will be lifts from the station for those who REALLY need them, but it would be easier if people post their train times as and when they know them and we can hopefully arrange people arriving at roughly the same time to make it easier for people to find their way. Watch this space for updates/directions if needed, and as always I will make our mobile numbers available on request for those who want a contact once en-route.

There is limited kippage at ours to the extent of:
- 1x double sofa bed
- 1x big sofa

BUT...we have plenty of floor space for anyone that wants to bring a sleeping bag or suchlike, and peeps who just want somewhere to crash are more than welcome, plus we are only 5 minutes walk from town! Parking is a little odd around our place, though in theory we could squeeze some cars on our plot overnight, but we are right next door to a wine rack (niiiiice) and with a little gentle persuasion they probably wouldn't object to a couple of cars being on their lot overnight either.
Alternatively; there is a good hotel literally 60 seconds up the road from us, the International. I've been told that it is pretty decent and is quite reasonably priced.
There is also the location of Dr. When's harem last year, The Stuart Hotel, recently renovated and quite adequate (though probably quite pricey if you don't find someone to share with!).

Any other questions, post or gaz us and...get signing up!
Last year we ended up with about 45 people, let's see if we can match it this year and have another brilliantly ridiculous night!

*signs up quick sharp*

EDIT: Right, I'm keeping a running total of people who need to stay in this post.

So far we've got:

Laird Dave pulled out and came on my tits
hooker1uk Definitely can't make it =/
Caewan and Arahan problems with the rents
JollyJack (possibly!)

There's a double (sofa)bed and a comfy sofa, plus lots of floorspace, and it'll be first come first served. 2 men can sleep in the double bed if you like, but if there's any bumsex involved you'll need to clean up after yourselves before we wake up, m'kay?

hmm, tempting.

Are there any B&Bs within stumbling distance of t'pub? The International says it's booked on t'night, and the Stuart is £50 for a single.

(, Wed 5 Sep 2007, 12:21, Reply)
There are loads of places to stay in Derby

I'll look into a few local b&b's and get back to you on that :)

Edit: I don't know if this will work for you, but if you search for b&b on google maps, with the postcode of the pub (DE1 3GU) you get the nearest results. Ignore the first one because it's bloody student accomadation agents, not a b&b! but you could try a couple of those?

(, Wed 5 Sep 2007, 13:11, Reply)
Danke co-pres

a couple of those look like they have potential.

I couldn't quite decide if this was some really carefully researched spam until I clicked on your profile, then upon mentioning it to the lovely Professor he walked out the room and promptly came back with a flyer for that very place!

It's where he was thinking of going for the tattoo he is currently getting designed. You really need to try harder to get to this bash, and we can talk nepotism ;)
