After a leisurely breakfast we head into the City Centre for a morning of film with the boys at the Showroom Cinema in Sheffield, followed by lunch.
Enjoy an afternoon of leisure in the Steel City of Sheffield. Where you can enjoy a visit to the Millennium Galleries and Winter Gardens, a stroll around Weston Park Museum, a swim at Ponds Forge International Swimming Pool, a browse around the shops, or a visit to Kelham Island area, best known for its wonderful real ales pubs and brewery, but also home to a museum celebrating Sheffield steel and housing the River Don Engine. If you are lucky you may even see the engine in steam. (Sadly we won’t be able to raffle it off).
Back to the hotel for an evening of games, quizzes and general silliness
7pm till late — Dinner and headline entertainment. Don’t get Blotto and faw down!
Sunday 3rd May
After breakfast all aboard the coaches at 10.30am for a day out West- not to a gold mine but to the National Coal Mining Museum. Where we will have lunch and also have an opportunity to go underground! We will spend the day exploring the museum and to practice being swell coal diggers, departing back to the hotel at around 4pm.
7pm reconvene for another evening of everything from soup to nuts, a good slug of liquor, a swell time in the Ballroom and no-one will be any the wiser.
Monday 4th May
After breakfast we will host the Grand Sheiks meeting — all welcome.
Followed by the passing of the pineapple and GOODBYEEEEEE, we’re going now!
£230 for the lot, bed & breakfast, lunch and dinner, so no need to bring any eats with you — it’s all provided even the nuts! Just make sure you have the spending money to get spiffed!
