Thought it would be a nice place to hold a punknic, thought I should get the ball rolling. A rolling jagger gathers no moss. But hey! the bantock house thing sounds good. We should do that next. Maybe before or after the winterbourne do...

Yeah OK I'm a bit busy for the next week or so but I'll do a trip over there and see what I can arrange. As soon as I've got some news I'll let you all know

A little over a month until the Winterbourne House & Gardens trip.  (Saturday May 3 at 11am).  Looking forward to it!

Could someone advise, via PM if necessary, what the form and format of next Saturday at Haden Hill is?

Thanks

Yes I realise my previous post was a little facetious but I couldn't resist. As to a proper answer to your question I'm as ignorant as you are. That's rarely stopped me though!

No I agree with you Kevin.

Turn up, be splendid and make of the day what you will. There is no "agenda" other than to enjoy yourself

I think, the main idea was.... As fine as I can remember... Was about 12:00 pm. Probably meeting around by the house, or the surrounding grass.

As it's a picnic or "Punknic" it would be remiss of you to forget the picnic basket. If you're aprehensive because it's your first steampunk event then fret not. A nicer group of people you could not wish to meet.

Fallowfield may not bite... But I know some people who do. Though they shan't be at the punknic.

I can't find any details about the Haden Hill do aside from the mention of a punknic and midday here - perhaps I'm being blind.  If that's at Haden Hill park in Sandwell, that appears to be within walkable distance of Old Hill railway station, so I might be able to come. If someone can confirm details asap, I'll do my best to attend if I can as I've been a tad unwell, and a touch of sun, sarnies and silliness is just what the doctor ordered!

Where was this event first publicised - anyone? Or put another way, all I have is 'Haden Hill' and 'midday', and never having heard of Haden Hill before, that's not a lot to go on. I'm presuming it IS the park in Sandwell, is that correct?  Is there somewhere particular that folk are meeting?

It's Haden Hill House, which I think is in the park - doesn't help that their web site it down for the weekend... Someone is going to be standing by the house at 12.00 to look after lost sheep - e.g. me!  

I think it was arranged via the West Midlands FB page.

Many thanks, Professor. Not being on FB I can only go by what I see posted here, hence my request for details. Well, I've a few things to do first, will see if I'm able to get there once I'm done.  Have a good time, all, in case I don't see you there!
