EDIT: Adding further info here to save folks from having to trawl the thread...


Itinerary

Friday 27th:
19:00 onwards - Informal gathering in The Alex (aka The Alexandra Hotel) to meet friends old & new and talk the toot.

Saturday 28th:
11:00 - 12:00 - Gather in The Alex for briefing on the afternoon.
12:00 - 18:00 - Go in search of "The Lost Large", hidden somewhere amongst the beers in some of Derby's finest alehouses.
19:00 onwards - Re-convene back in The Alex to reveal the results of the search.

NOTE: The whole of Saturday has an optional (but strongly encouraged) fancy dress theme - "Heroes & Adventurers" - and there will be a prize for the best!

Sunday 29th:
Chill-out in The Alex until it's time to go home.


Where to stay

We recommend The Express by Holiday Inn, Derby Pride Park, as it is very close to both the railway station and The Alex. It also does great breakfasts.

How to get there

By train: Derby railway station is 5 minutes walk from both The Alex and the above hotel.
By plane: BMI have some very cheap flights from pretty much anywhere in the country to East Midlands Airport, which is just 30 mins from Derby railway station via the Skylink shuttle service.


EDIT: Adding further info here...


Here is a map showing the various pubs that we plan to visit on our search, as well as a selection of hotels including the aforementioned Holiday Inn:

Very handy!

It was going to be the weekend before, which would have been even handier I guess, but we had to shift it to avoid a Derby home game.
