DH would be happy to bring a guitar (or two) & we can provide some informal entertainment, if you like. MM, you & JR can show us your moves :)

lol Kadenza!! sing a long fine by me but I can't sing lol! I quite fancy a meal, maybe some cocktails ( :whistle ) and a boogie..... I reckon it would be good if it was all in one place as whenever a group moves around you lose people on route! On the other hand that could be an advantage maybe..... Let me know if you need a hand with anything...

Any out of London, Manchester or York will do for me.

Bit too previous to think about what I want for dinner next April, but as for entertainment; how about a show of some kind?

It doesn't have to be the York one - other dungeons do similar stuff. It might be a laugh - it's either a whole night at the dungeon including buffet and boogie (need to phone for prices) - or part of the night at the dungeon with a 2 or 3 course meal in the restaurant next door. £35/£40 per person for the night. Look here.

Reviews of hen/stag nights here. Much the same package as we'd probably be looking at.

I voted London as its closest to me but London, Manchester or York is fine as have car, will travel. One question .... what on earth do we do with our children? Do all you people have loving relatives that help out at these times (if so I'm leaving ;) )?

Nope many do not have relatives who can help so its just a matter of doing what you can.

Some people ask friends to help out
Some have a respite allowance
Some have partners who dont go and stay with the kid
Some use special baby sitting services that deal with special needs (for a fee)
Some do have family
Some miss out and dont go
Some have children in residential schools
Some only come for part of an event / meet as they have limited babysitters / child minders / family
More miss out
Some come with a friend/partner and bring the child to a hotel and the adults take turns in watching the kid / being at the meet
Some pay for private respite
More again miss out
Some have older (a lot older e.g. 17/18 year old) children who look after the disabled sibling

We abandon ours. Usually in three different places.

Didn't do the children of Sparta any harm, did it?
