    7pm then?

    Dave, if you look back a few pages in this thread, we discussed what food to have in the evening and a few people asked is there anyone not happy with curry, no one voiced objections so it was agreed we'd have curry. You can get some english meals at most Indian restuarants though.

    Cool OK I'll book today for 10 people @ 7pm I'm sure if there are a couple extra they won't mind sticking chairs on. I don't know where yet as there are a couple of options but we'll see who has room for us all.

    I'm just wondering if we need to "pre-warn" the Armouries, this isn't a public place as such, and you costumers will attract people wanting photographs. You'll also be "competing" in that sense with their staff who are costumers. We may need their say so.

    Btw, you lot are planning on parking near the Armouries right, but you need my room to change into cossies ... it's a little bit of a walk (10-20 mins, I can't say for sure, I haven't been in a long time), I'll get a map done asap.

    Maybe it'd be easier to travel in cossie then and just change at yours before the meal?

    sounds like a good idea to me.

    ...wouldnt worry about the Armouries - people turn up in all sorts of clobber I am sure....as for pictures...are we that popular? lol (Maybe Ewan....). The costumers they have usually work in the outside areas, but not sure when they stop doing the outside shows with winter now upon us? Think its normally a summer thing....not sure....?

    I have booked a table at Akbars: The Grand, Greek Street, LS1 5RU for 10 people at 7pm. Its not the cheapest but not the priciest, the food is lovely and last time I was there the naan breads came on hangers which is novel (and I got a rose at the end of the meal). www.akbars.co.uk has a full menu on there. Let me know if people don't fancy it.

    I'm in Sheffield the night before at a gig and staying over there so whilst I'll hopefully make the armouries at 12pm, hangovers allowing, I have stored Tim's mobile just in case!

    Excited now :) I'm looking forward to it. I'll not be costuming though - is everyone changing back into civvies back at Tim's hotel?

    IT'S A TRAP!!!!!!!!!!

    :p

    But the food looks great, anywhere that sells paneer as a main dish is fine with me (even if they spell it funny) ;)

    Gonna be a good meet :D

    Cheese - sick! (I hate cheese :( )

    Didn't think about Akbar's - nice! I was going to book Darbar's - anyone in the universe called that?

    Topic of discussion for the meal - what should Jacen Solo's new Darth... name be?
