Same as every year, a nice meet/catch up in Carlisle, with a meal at Rob40's restaurant here and quite a few drinks and a night around the town laugh

For any new people to this, if you want to stay overnight, there are plenty of hotels close by and the ones we use mostly are the Ibis and The County.
Plenty of others within short walking distances too though cool

As soon as a hotel gets a couple of bookings for the same date, within a couple of days, they think something is happening and increase prices.

Always happens and is why I booked The County last year cry By the time I had the money for the Ibis, prices were at £50 or £60 frown

Corner House currently has some rooms available (I think Simon stayed there last year), starting from £30 (breakfast included in price) and not too far away from the Ibis and The County either.

No up front costs either, pay on the day.

I've just booked a room, just in case the prices for the Ibis and County go up higher before I have the money to pay.

Is this the kind of event you could bring an (almost) one year old to?
We wouldn't partake in the drinking aspect anyway.

Jim, this is a pic of the inside of Rob's restaurant
click to enlarge

I'm not sure what Rob40 would have to say on this but I would imagine one of you guys would be holding your wee lassie at any one time while the noshing was going on. It's a great atmosphere for potentially rowdy but well-behaved folk but not convinced that it's great sleeping ambience laugh
I'm thinking of the room/space etc. but you'd be better PM'ing Rob on that issue.

But, start 'em young, and she'd be sure to get loads of attention!

Beforehand everyone tends to meet up from around 5.00 onwards in the Ibis bar, then go to eat 7.30/8.00ish. Afterwards the tarts and chavs adventurous young things go out for a night on the town laugh

Breakfast/coffee next morning often in what used to be Wotherspoons if not/as well as in your hotel...or it's up to you.

Great, someone to keep steamer company and on his level, maybe if all went well even laugh at his jokes.

No offense intended Jim.
