So that's about 40 people...

...which means that we have too many for the Senate Dining Room. We will have to eat somewhere else.

Plus I have to give you all an apology. I've just been informed that the prices will rise at the end of next year to £60 per person in the Castle without the evening meal.

The £40 per person per night with dinner is in a concrete student accommodation block with communal bathrooms somewhere else in Durham. I misunderstood the email I received. Very sorry for the mistake.

I thought it was a bit cheap to be staying in a castle lol, we still want to go though :) . I was a bit reluctant to say I wanted to go because it is so far in advance its not possible for me to say we can go for sure or not, I would feel really bad if in the end only half the people went and you had changed the venue or something to accommodate more people :blink:

We can cover the minimum booking easily - and we don't have to finalise the numbers until much closer to the date. So don't worry - we'll keep reminding folk.

Meanwhile, as we can't fit in the Castle dining room, how about we eat here?

Well, there are lots of other B&Bs and hotels in all sorts of cities, but the castle still really appeals.

Is £60 per person per night still ok with everyone?

Edited to add: GOM's restaurant pics are just down the hill from the castle. Very close.

A Champagne bar in Durham?

Deary, deary me. There goes the neighbourhood. I blame the students.

Shall I re-book it for somewhere else?
