yes yes - i am not liverpuddlian, and infact live in Brighton, so my lovlies

suggestions please

ShrekTheHalls Thu 02-Jan-14 01:17:39

a good few l'pool mners on this list already wink
how many people are we likely to be catering for (crystal ball time?)

I will provisionally join in if I can smile I'm in Liverpool, shall have a 5 month old in July, provided he doesn't decide to stay put for too much longer. Also got a holiday booked so will depend on dates, ability to leave small baby etc!

I ain't never been to Liverpool. Would love to see it through an alcohol-induced haze, from the unique perspective of the gutter, with a bunch of vipers

Zombie, we could travel up together.

Last time I said I would come, most of the other people dropped out!

I will have to think about this one. Got a possible trip to Tunis planned for Easter and am arranging huge NYE celebrations for next year in a Scottish castle with a group of friends, which will cost an arm and a leg.

July is also exam time for dd.

IamtheZombie Thu 02-Jan-14 14:47:24

Oooh, good idea, Barfa!

CustardoPaidforIDSsYFronts Thu 02-Jan-14 14:49:09

Rhubs....sad

THECliffRichardSucksEggsinHell Thu 02-Jan-14 14:55:52

I know I know, don't make me feel guilty! If anything changes I'll let you know but I have a couple of issues:

Trains from here to Liverpool are shite.
Could drive up and combine with a visit to in-laws but that's a 4 hour drive and early July could be fraught with exams plus it's dd's birthday on 24th so we traditionally visit in-laws then, after schools break up. Can't really do 2 visits in one month.

sad

My issues are DH's birthday on the 6th July and convincing him that it is a good ildea to travel over 200 miles to meet a bunch of people off of 't'internet.

CustardoPaidforIDSsYFronts Thu 02-Jan-14 15:13:28

rhubs sad sad <sniff> (wasn't it your idea?)

Hearts - your dh will have another birthday next year - it's fine

I'll mark my place and observe from the sidelines for now. 'Tis only a short train journey for me but I'll probably do what Custardo said and bottle it at the last minute blushgrin

i have been looking at restaurants on bond street and the lebanese and leaf dont sell alcohol WTAF

got to be sensible - dont want to go somewhere with no atmosphere ( the ASK restaurant where i live is dire) equally i have to think of train and lodgings on top -

Is bella italia ok?

Leaf def do serve alcohol. I have bought drinks there. Have been to wedding reception there too, there's big bar upstairs!

Oh me me me <desperate for a night out> pretty please!

here if link works! Have only been twice though and once was the wedding. So not sure on atmosphere etc.

CustardoPaidforIDSsYFronts Fri 03-Jan-14 01:03:43

Is this just for Liverpool MNers? And if not, would the out-of-towners be staying at a hotel somewhere? If so, I would be interested.

crikey!

I am all excited now. And scared. <<wibbles>>

I have rellies in the area but a Travelodge/Premier Inn may be cheaper than a taxi to the 'burbs and the receptionist is unlikely to give me a cats bum face and ask "Have you been drinking"?

Plus there is the added bonus of a buffet breakfast grin

Would you like to share a room, TheWoollybacksWife? We could bring our knitting with us - and maybe even go and see what Liverpool has in the way of yarn shops!

CustardoPaidforIDSsYFronts Sun 05-Jan-14 12:34:13

yes nothing like what passes for a traveldodgy croissant...no really there is nothing like it smile

Sounds good to me SDTG grin

We'll be from Manchester so I'll only come if I'm not going to get beaten up.

The Premier Inn at Liverpool One is showing as having rooms at £29 for the big night. It's on Hanover Street. It has been a while since I was out in Liverpool but I would say that is staggering walking distance from Leaf - at least to get there. Would anyone local agree? Or care to suggest somewhere else?

WhoNickedMyName Sun 05-Jan-14 17:17:23

Liverpool One is easily walkable to/from Leaf. Here are the some of the nearest hotels.

If a few of you are travelling together and already know each other, then you might want to consider renting a city apartment for the night, it'd probably work out cheaper.

Isn't the 27th of July a Sunday, though?

Rummikub Sun 05-Jan-14 17:37:59

Think that hotel is about a ten min walk away from bold st (for me, in heels)

There's one of those city apartments on bold st too.

WhoNickedMyName Sun 05-Jan-14 17:43:22

Yeah 27th is a Sunday?

jonicomelately Sun 05-Jan-14 17:45:08

I'll come. I love Leaf smile

CustardoPaidforIDSsYFronts Sun 05-Jan-14 17:58:59

bollocks - its the 26th - mumsnet HQ are going to love me

CustardoPaidforIDSsYFronts Sun 05-Jan-14 18:02:41

well premier inn are saying its £111

so not that one then

MrsShrek3 Sun 05-Jan-14 18:05:09

definitely 26th July?

CustardoPaidforIDSsYFronts Sun 05-Jan-14 18:09:40

there is a hostel called hoax - we could get six of us in and pay £28 ish

Yay for 26th I will def be back from holiday then. I shall work hard on making soon to arrive boychild take expressed bottle feeds so I can leave DH with children and get very drunk! Hurrah gringrin

ISpyPlumPie Sun 05-Jan-14 19:03:41

That sounds great. Will have to find out if the night bus still stops near my parents' house and whether I can stay there nightbus probably has an upper age limit which I breached many years ago but I don't care grin

Oo, good, Leaf. I love Leaf, I'm considering it for my wedding.

Which I will drunkenly invite you all to, obviously.

TooWetToWoo Sun 05-Jan-14 20:11:15

I've stayed in the YHA hostel by the docks, it was basic but did the job. Cost us about £26 each for four of us. The rooms sleep 6 (3 loys of bunkbeds) so we did have two other women in with us but they were ok apart from the one who took her apple juice to bed with her thinking we were going to pilfer itconfused

I might stay over too, taxi would be ridiculous (£50+) to get back.

DejaVuAllOverAgain Sun 05-Jan-14 20:43:21

Ooh, I might stay over too if I can make it, dependent on costs.

TooWetToWoo Sun 05-Jan-14 20:46:41

It's turning into a pissup/sleepover grin

Can i pls be added to the list? I may bottle out though! smile

Rummikub Sun 05-Jan-14 21:11:36

Albert dock has cheap ish hotels doesn't it? The Dolby and campanile?

morethanpotatoprints Sun 05-Jan-14 21:25:42

I will come if it fits in with stuff here.
Not far from Liverpool and go regularly, but usually for other reasons.
There are loads of fab places and the people are really friendly.

Trivago has rooms at the Radisson Blu for £68. No breakfast though sad

MrsShrek3 Mon 06-Jan-14 00:06:20

holiday inn and Thistle atlantic tower seem to come in around £80 ish for twin, is that too much?

see this

MrsShrek3 Mon 06-Jan-14 00:12:31

this Is in liverpoolOne (so not far)
and quadruple room

Rummikub Mon 06-Jan-14 00:49:54

The uni does accommodation, but have to stay 2 nights! For £48 a night.

When did hotels get so expensive! Even the campanile, which isn't that great from what I remember. I'm quite tempted to ring round and see if there's a group discount and one for mumsnet too!

Leaf does breakfasts, TheWoollybacksWife!

nopanicandverylittleanxiety Mon 06-Jan-14 23:40:48

me too please?

PrettyVacant1 Tue 07-Jan-14 07:01:42

This is happening https://m.facebook.com/GiantSpectacular from 23rd-27th.
It's amazing but also may explain why hotels may be full/expensive.

TooWetToWoo Tue 07-Jan-14 07:39:24

Brilliant, thanks for that link Pretty, I saw them last time and it was really good. It got very busy though.

CuntyBunty Tue 07-Jan-14 10:25:15

Why isn't BOF coming? She's north west, isn't she?

BarfaStewart Tue 07-Jan-14 17:45:08

Cunty, she is. Is Lulumama still on MN?

Fucknuggets. We'll probably be in Canada at end of July.

Vix1980 Wed 08-Jan-14 15:55:58

Can i Join too. Im from liverpool so only a short little ride for me to leaf,
Im not orange though, I dont have massive hair either - just incase you were looking forward to a real life orange scouser with hair that could take over the world joining you all. smile

How do you all know each other when we get there though, I'd be afraid of going round the tables whispering pom bears to see who responds. There are trendies in Leaf and i'd get laughed at.

If anyone would like to meet up beforehand so you dont have to walk into the place on your own not knowing anyone please pm me. (will also help me not to bottle it at the last moment) grin

p.s. yarn shops - elkilos is fab, off london road think its called abakhans though. I live in there most days!

The giants puppets are back in Liverpool for this weekend - could explain why the hotels are pricy. It's going to be very busy.

www.giantspectacular.com/

Heifer Fri 10-Jan-14 14:34:57

ah, the event will be brilliant I imagine (saw the Giants previously and were fantastic) but it could be a nightmare for those people travelling in and not sure of the area as I'm guessing certain roads will be closed off? but not sure.

I will be coming over on the train from the Wirral so ok for me, but it will be very very busy, and hard to walk around.

Probably worth looking at a different date?

MrsShrek3 Fri 10-Jan-14 14:40:30

That's true, Heiffer. Last time this was on, the whole walk route was closed to traffic and public transport was absolutely jammed.

How many people have already booked accommodation or anything non-refundable?
OTOH, for any of you wanting to make a weekend of it, it's absolutely amazing to see.

JodiA Fri 10-Jan-14 23:02:25

Oooh finally found a Scouse thread wink

Which areas are you all from? I'm Knowsley x

Custardo Sat 11-Jan-14 07:57:10

righto

has anyone booked trains planes automobiles, hotels?

caketinrosie Sat 11-Jan-14 08:31:21

Premier inn liverpool north has rooms for 35 quid. It is about a 15 minute taxi ride into liverpool and would cost about a tenner in a taxi or a 5 minute walk would get you to orrel park train station where you can get trains every 15 mins. I would loooooove to come as I too hail from the town of lambananas but I will have just returned from my hols stealth boast and I would be desperate for adult attention after ten days listening to my DDs delightful musings absolute relentless drivel please accept a decline from me with regret and a place on the reserve list. I would have painted myself orange and made my hair big and curly and everything sad

caketinrosie Sat 11-Jan-14 08:36:07

Reserve list for next time!

JodiA Sat 11-Jan-14 09:27:47

Where abouts is everyone from within the 'Pool?!

And re the 'orange paint' and curlers - I think you are getting us Scousers completely mixed up with Geordie Shore angry

Vix1980 Sat 11-Jan-14 10:02:45

jodia Oooh finally found someone who lives near-ish me, Im in tuebrook, so not that far away!

I haven't booked anything yet.

Rummikub Sat 11-Jan-14 12:20:03

Not booked anything at all.

WhoNickedMyName Sat 11-Jan-14 12:20:22

Hate to be a pain in the arse but another vote from me to change the date. We went into Liverpool last time the giants were there - even some roads right in the centre were closed off - it'll be a nightmare for anyone that doesn't know their way around and all the bars and restaurants will be rammed.

Soz lar grin

JodiA Sat 11-Jan-14 12:21:16

Vix I assumed the majority of this thread would be from here ?!

Aah Tuebrook, where abouts? Park end? I used to live in Kenny (confused) ! But am Huyton now wink

caketinrosie Sat 11-Jan-14 14:42:22

jodieA try looking in the Hilton on a sat night, big hair and orange skin for all to see. Although they may be visiting from Geordie shore to be fair. I make sure I stare disapprovingly in a judgey way and not full of rage and jealousy because I'm too old and a chubber to be that orange and my hair is poo grin

Vix1980 Sat 11-Jan-14 19:14:00

haha jodi, moved up in the world hey! wink !! Yep not far from the park.

Where abouts in huyton? I lived in Dovecot for a little while, thankfully escaped now though back to glorious Tuebrook smile

jonicomelately Sat 11-Jan-14 19:38:48

2 million visitors expected to see the puppets shock It may be slightly crowded!

GeordieCherry Sat 11-Jan-14 20:07:51

I'll be there. No orange face here either wink

JodiA Sat 11-Jan-14 20:27:46

Vix - In all fairness I think I'd prefer Dovey to Tuebrook blush Sorry!

But yeah, for me!! Hate Kenny! Grew up there, unfortunately !!

Ridersofthestorm Sat 11-Jan-14 21:44:29

Sounds good to me! I'm an ex-pat Liverpool gal sad need any excuse to get my arse home!

MrsShrek3 Sun 12-Jan-14 19:41:06

pmsl joni may be slightly crowded
grin grin

Custardo Tue 14-Jan-14 00:17:07

righto 19th?

If it's on the 19th I might be able to come! So for purely selfish reasons I vote 19th too.

19th sounds good so far smile

19th is good for me smile

Heifer Tue 14-Jan-14 15:31:38

Im in for the 19th

TheRealCarrieBradshaw Tue 14-Jan-14 15:45:34

Any of you from Knowsley ?

MrsShrek3 Wed 15-Jan-14 00:00:08

yy to 19th. better for mesmile

CuntyBunty Fri 17-Jan-14 10:56:03

I grew up inHuyton TheReal, but left about 23 years ago. Now living in Bristol.

Damnit, dh has just reminded me we're busy on the 19th. Never mind. Next time smile

Alternatively you can all come here and deal with my horse issue <hopeful>

DejaVuAllOverAgain Wed 22-Jan-14 20:30:31

I'll be there Chris

DejaVuAllOverAgain Wed 22-Jan-14 20:30:52

Oops, forgot the grin

Deja grin

Heifer Tue 28-Jan-14 18:58:05

phew, just rushed her to check what date it was. I've just agreed to go to a school reunion (30 yrs since I left).. but thankfully that's 13th. ...

Better get my social head on for September then grin

LCHammer Fri 31-Jan-14 19:35:50

I think 19th might be better as school holidays won't have started yet.

Snatchoo Sun 20-Apr-14 22:44:53

I'm in.

Snatchoo Sun 20-Apr-14 22:46:51

I see some of you are near me, I'm in Old Swan.

LadyMud Sun 20-Apr-14 22:50:03

Better get my social head on for September then
Sorry, I'm confused confused - is this July or September?

LadyMud Fri 27-Jun-14 16:20:56

Anyone out there ??? [ waves hopefully ]

LadyWithLapdog Thu 03-Jul-14 17:03:58

I think the OP has been off MN fir a while so it would need someone else to drive this.

LadyMud Fri 04-Jul-14 14:07:38

Thanks for responding, LadyWithLapdog. Perhaps a low-key meet-up in September might still be possible? Something simple like lunch at the Albert Dock?
