YORKSHIRE X-MAS DO (END OF YEAR) DRIVE OUT/NIGHT OUT

    Hi Everyone,

    As Christmas is fast approaching I was wondering if there is any interest in a Christmas drive out/night out?

    I was thinking a nice drive out mid afternoon on a Saturday, then head for a Christmas market, we can eat/drink/chat and if you are bringing the ladies then there are some stalls to look round so no one gets bored, Some places have an outdoor ice rink or rides so bring the kids along too (or leave them at home and let your hair down) those wanting a drink and to stay out later can stay over in a hotel or those just wanting a day out can drive home.

    Places I’ve thought of are

    Manchester 14th Nov -21st Dec
    Birmingham 12th Nov – 22nd Dec
    Nottingham 20th Nov – 24th Dec
    Liverpool 20th Nov – 19th Dec

    The Christmas Markets usually run from mid November right up to end of December so dates are below

    14th November - Manchester and Birmingham only
    21st November
    28th November
    5th December
    12th December – I am unable to make this as it would have been Dad’s 65th birthday and we will be doing something.
    19th December – maybe a bit close to Christmas??

    If you are interested please comment with the location and dates you can make and also if you are wanting to stay over.

    Please feel free to add new locations if you think there’s better cities to go to, I’m just thinking within a couple of hours drive for those travelling back home.

    This will be the first meet I’ve organised on ASN and it will probably be our last 2015 meet so let’s make it one to remember

    xx

    I'll say a provisional YES, but probably not to stop over.

    Lincoln was my first choice with it only been an hour away, but its only on for one weekend and last time I went it was so busy it was un enjoyable, there were coach trips and hundreds of people and all the hotels are booked if anyone wanted to stay over :-( xx

    I'm definately up for attending this one Sarah.

    I would probably stop over aswell given the locations being a decent drive away. I would like to let my hair down but seen as i only have a short back and sides, i may find this difficult lol.

    Liverpool/York/Harrogate seem like good locations to me. Although, if people are planning on a few drinks/staying over, would it be a good idea to choose somewhere with a decent night life?

    I personally see this meet as a good opportunity for it to be an end of year christmas do, like all the workplace ones....

    btw, great work Sarah!

    I'm up for this! Manchester is my preference as its closest, but I'd go to Liverpool or Nottingham if they were the most popular choices. a couple of pals I work with would probably be up for this too, providing people don't mind a 2015 mini JCW and a BMW 235i joining the ranks?

    Manchester isn't that far from most of us so that's sounding like a winner x
