Eek

Ooo on my search for cheaper places I had a brain wave.
Butlins!

They do cheapish rooms, have night life (over 18 events too), 3rd rate celebs (Right Said Fred!!!!) and office rooms/venues to let.
Ok, it may not be cheap but with pubs and clubs on the doorstep it could be a cool party.
Ive e-mailed them for information.
(rooms seem to be about 85 for three days, some are 39)
Anyway I think that would be a fun party type thing but we will see.

What does everyone think of a Butlins holiday weekend? (no singing cliff songs)
Depends on the price I know, and Bognor isnt London city centre or anything but...

OMG RSF!!!

How about West Cornwall? been there for vacations a couple of times, there's plenty of room for everyone and it's not nearly as expensive as other places previously mentioned

That's correct, Shoonay. And I wish I were there for the meeting, I bought a shiny new axe recently.

Bump for great justice. I take it all interest in this has died? Or rather that all interest in someone pulling their finger out and booking something has died?

And don't look at me. etc.
