Manchester, UK Sherlock meet up (SUGGESTED DATE: 14TH JUNE)

There are at least three of us on here that live in or near Manchester, maybe more.

We should organise a board meet up. Anyone up for it?

Shopping?? *rolls eyes* Hardly a Sherlockian activity. Unless we're shopping for Sherlock Holmes books or John Watson jumpers.

Re: Manchester, UK Sherlock meet up (SUGGESTED DATE: 14TH JUNE)

I would love to do this and the centre of Manchester  is only 15 minutes away for me. The only problem for me is fitting a meet up around my life. I have 3 kids and the youngest is just a baby. Evenings are definately out of the question but then daytimes I'm busy working my life around my kids. Summer hols are soon then I finish maternity leave and go back to work.

I just don't know how I'd ever manage it.

I guess it would stop us from needing babysitters!

I'd love to take a trip to Manchester for a SH meet, if someone didn't mind me Sherlock-esque napping on a sofa to save me having a long drive back the same day!

By the way, does anyone know the address for the Sherlockian Violin Society?

Re: Manchester, UK Sherlock meet up (SUGGESTED DATE: 14TH JUNE)

I'd be up for a meetup, but not with kids. I don't have any myself and to be honest, that's not how I would wish to spend a few hours in a bustling city.

Re: Manchester, UK Sherlock meet up (SUGGESTED DATE: 14TH JUNE)

Yeah, that was just a joke really. There's no way I'd take my kid to a meet up, lol, I wouldn't be able to enjoy myself properly.

Anyway, SherlockHound, you're more than welcome to crash at my place if you come to Manchester for a meet.

Re: Manchester, UK Sherlock meet up (SUGGESTED DATE: 14TH JUNE)

Thank you for the offer! It would be much appreciated.

One idea I was wondering about actually, which could be in addition or another time or whatever, is that the Frankfurt Christmas Market is on in Birmingham from the 15th of November. I'm not sure what others think, but I always love that particular market when it's on... what do you think?

And what idea for dates did you have on the Manchester meet, SH? I'll probably come up by coach since they have cheap rates at the moment...

Anyone still interested in this at all? Even though it's near the end of October now...

Re: Manchester, UK Sherlock meet up (SUGGESTED DATE: 14TH JUNE)

I'm available Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and possibly Saturdays at the moment http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png


I'd love to meet up with you guys in the city http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png


If you want to wait until next month, the Christmas markets start on the 15th:

Hey kittykat!

Can you get to Birmingham at all, or is that too far? Manchester would be alright I think as long as someone didn't mind me napping on a sofa...

Re: Manchester, UK Sherlock meet up (SUGGESTED DATE: 14TH JUNE)

Sorry, Birmingham's a no-go since I don't live on my own. Too far. Can't help you with the sofa, either http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/depressed.png

I wish more events would take place up North. It all seems to be mainly London.

Re: Manchester, UK Sherlock meet up (SUGGESTED DATE: 14TH JUNE)

There's seems to be a few of us from Manchester now, a few new people too. So, I'm rebooting this thread again and throwing the idea out there to meet sometime next month?

I live near Birmingham and although Manchester is too far to go for a meetup - I'm public transport only and don't have the dosh to be honest - I would so be up for a meetup for the Frankfurt Xmas Market; I've been a couple of times and it's a fantastic place to get presents!  Plus all the Sherlock chat...
