I'm considering spiting the weather forecast and going to Bridgnorth on the steam train tomorrow.  My general plan is to take the 10.30 train to Bridgnorth- anybody want to come along?

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

You're babbling man, go and have a sit down with a cuppa and some cake...talking of cake, there was a prolific amount of it available at the Botanical Gardens, which is never bad in my book and personally I had a great time, the Bonsai were my favorite, tree not cake and I  look forward to returning on a sunnier day.

Greetings esteemed colleagues!

Apologies for having been absent from the ether for a while - I'm not entirely certain why either, since I have been doing other things. I did attend Tutbury on the Sunday, but I was in semi-civvy mode wearing stripey blazer and panama as I was not entirely sure what to expect and I was also with my mother. I am sorry to have missed the Botanical Gardens since I probably could have made that (albeit the weather was most foul).

I am going to The Asylum for the whole weekend: is anyone else going? I have to say as a first-timer, it is extremely difficult to understand what one's ticket does and does not include and what ancilliary events one has to sign-up to.

In terms of BW&WM sociable activities, most of mid-week is not feasible during term-time for me as I have commitments to various music groups most evenings in the week (that and living in north Shropshire I am around 60 miles from Birmingham - say about 1h 15m by car, M6 and A38 permitting).

Hope to renew acquaintances with all soon.

Dear Mr Fallowfield,
A weekend would be easiest for us, although we would only be coming along for part of the day do please don't let this be any kind of determining factor. However, as mentioned, if on a weekend it could be combined with a visit to the Stourbridge Vintage Fair (next one is on the 13th, so clashes with The Asylum, and the one after that should be a fortnight later). Oh, and - Polari?

Dear Prof. Comberthwaite,
This will be our first Asylum too. If I understand it correctly, we have to swap the tickets for wrist-bands (at the Assembly Rooms?) and this then gives access to the daytime events; I think the evening ones require separate tickets )we haven't booked for any of the evening ones - we are taking the children on the Lincoln ghost walk instead). We enjoyed Tutbury too on the Sunday - sorry we didn't know to say hello!

Yours,
Miranda.

Ok then I propose,
Saturday 27th September
10am Dudley, bus on to Brierley Hill, then onto Stourbridge and finally onto Halesowen. I'll contact dancers and let them know if any old stock they want rid of to get them ready. I'll hold off till Monday  and if no one objects begin preparation.

Start saving your pennies!!

By the way, if any crafter's in the group fancy giving me a hand, I need all the advice I can get:

Should be fine for us. Could you please give us a rough e.t.a. for the Stourbidge leg once plans are a little firmer?

Thanks,
Miranda.

If I go to this, I'll have to drive anyway. I have orchestra rehearsals on Saturday mornings, so an indicative timetable would be helpful. If so, I hope to be able to make a part of the event.

Ok then here's my proposal

Meet in Dudley for 10. There's about a dozen or so charity shops/curios.
Onto Brierley Hill say half 11. There's not that many charity shops but they are cheap and they are close to each other.
Onto Stourbridge for the vintage market as described by Miranda. T for 12/half 12
Then onto Halesowen for 2 not sure about charity shop but I'll see if Dancers have any sale stock. If they don't then we can scrap Halesowen and spend a bit longer in Stourbridge.

I'll check out bus prices as it will be easier and cheaper than finding parking spaces.

I don't see why one shouldn't go dressed if one wishes.

I checked on the Vintage Fair's FB site and it was just showing the one for the 13th, but earlier in the year they were running every fortnight, so hopefully it will be the same for the end of September.

I'm afraid I will be taking the coward's way out in terms of dressing, but at least with others being more adventurous we should be able to spot the group once it 'lands' in Stourbridge!

Yours,
Miranda.
