Methinks I will be refraining from more expensive outings for a while, so can't make the Shakespeare Express outing and of course, I missed the museum. I'm trying to get a new job (and saving for Lincoln....)
Sorry chaps and chapettes, see you at....some point!

Love and tea,

There's always punknics, Madam Takara; we generally have one in Cannon Hill Park each year, no reason anyone can't suggest a date there - or in some other park -  and see if anyone else can make it!

I was thinking that at least for those of us in Dudleyand the surrounding enviros we could at least have a punknic at a location such as Haden Hill House, or another suitable (free) location if anyone has suggestions.

I don't know who has seen it... But there is something steampunk related going on at WOLVERHAMPTON ART GALLERY. (It's great there, some good victorian paintings... And a Deane & adam's revolver.)
As far as I know it's on the 29th... I think. I'm not sure if you have to pay... If it was it'll only be about £5.00 ...... But I think it wasn't a paying event.
I'm trying to save for Lincoln too....

Oh yes, I thought it sounded like the one you mentioned the other day, but I have a memory like a goldfish so I wasn't sure!

But does that stop us from visiting wolverhapton and having a good time? I don't see how or why! So... I think a nice outing would be good. If not.. Well, nothing lost. But there is so much to gain! like... A trip to Gregg's! Or... A walk round town to scare the locals.

Hehee or we could scare the locals out of Gregg's and eat the cake...
Now you mention it I saw some spontaneous cosplayers in Wolverhampton the other day, and I keep seeing them in Birmingham (they keep thinking I'm one of them...) A gathering of steamies would probably end up making it more a parade than a group xD

A trip to Wolverhampton just for the heck of it sounds a good idea (I'm told there is at least one decent vintage shop there- where's Gazongola when you need him?  Cheesy )

I've just booked my hotel for July 26 (the night before the trip to Stratford).  If anyone wants to book the same hotel I'm in the Macdonald Burlington on New Street, if you go via laterooms it's about £80 a night.

Was on way to Harborne today when I decided on a whim to enquire about prices etc at Birmingham Botanical Gardens. The staff were lovely. After I explained about us they gave me all the details, prices etc, and even allowed me a 'planning' visit round the gardens.

So.

Would people be interested in a BBG visit?
I'm thinking August?
Saturday or Sunday?
Any clashing dates?
Picnic a definite although they do have a cafe.
Entry price would be £6 per person as long as we have minimum of 10 people.

Let me know thoughts and I'll book it with them.

Those on the Book of Face could you put the idea out please.

Birmingham Botanical Gardens would be a great trip I think.  (Preferably on a Saturday, though I could do a Sunday if the start time were late enough).

Yay!

A very good evening to you all, and hello - this is my very first post here (I finally became tired of 'lurking'!)

I though I should mention that a few years ago the Botanical Gardens held a Victorian Evening in the run-up to Christmas, and encouraged people to dress accordingly. Unfortunately, we were some of the very few who did enter into the spirit of things, but despite this it was an excellent event, with plenty of Victorian-themed activities to keep both adults and children engaged. It always though it was a shame they didn't repeat the event, but I can vouch it makes for an excellent period 'backdrop'.

Sounds like the perfect location then!
