Firstly, let me just say that Claire and I are both completely overwhelmed at the response we've got to this! We honestly didn't think so many people would express an interest, it's going to be so much fun!
Here's the current plan:
The meet is on Saturday 23rd July (to the Sunday if you're coming for the night out), just incase anyone had forgotten!
We'll meet at around 2pm, probably at the train station or somewhere central. That gives people plenty of time to get there without having to get a realy early train.
Then we'll shop/generally mooch about and chat for the afternoon, before going for drinks and dinner at about 7pm. We've got a couple of ideas on where to eat but haven't booked anything yet, so if there's anywhere you really love in Birmingham let us know!
After dinner it'll then be a girls night out at bars/clubs. Again any suggestions are welcome. If you're coming let me know what kinds of music/club nights you prefer so we can try and plan something to cater to most people's tastes!
If you want to join us on the night out then you'll need to book a hotel room. You'll probably need to share with someone else (unless you're minted!) so try and pair up with someone else who's coming. A possible hotel is Jury's Inn, which you can find good deals for on either Expedia or Lastminute.com. Those links take you to the options for two people sharing, but there are also rooms with two double beds, or a double and a single, so it would work out even cheaper for three or four people to share. Just have a search on the sites, I'm sure you can all work Expedia just fine. If you're really stuck and don't know any of the other bloggers coming or are too shy to ask people to room with you then give me or Claire an email and we'll try and put people together, but I have confidence that you'll all be able to organise yourselves nicely.
The next morning we'll all meet for a nice greasy fry-up or similar hangover breakfast, before saying our goodbyes!
Here's a list of all the bloggers who have said they're interested in coming, so you can check out each other's blogs and get in contact to arrange rooms if you're staying for the night. I'd also suggest that everyone follows each other on Twitter so it's easier to ask questions and get in touch with each other.
