Can we bring our children? (mine is male, does that make a difference?) He is a baby so would be in a sling.

Hi, will be there as a member of OBJECT. I would love to meet some of you. I will be the one with the clown. If you have kids he will be right up their street. Cant wait.

can anyone tell me how long the walk is from the railway station to the art gallery?

ReclaimtheNightLeeds Fri 26-Nov-10 15:07:10

5 mins, if that. Not very far at all. Just walk out of the main entrance to the station, round to the left, cross the road (with centenary square with an Xmas tree to your left) and then straight up the road ahead of you (Park Row), then left at the cross roads.

Looking forward to seeing you Mrs Clown grin

sethstarkaddersmum Fri 26-Nov-10 15:12:35

great, thank you.
How many people are you expecting roughly?

ReclaimtheNightLeeds Fri 26-Nov-10 15:19:08

Well last year the BBC said we had 300. But really it's pretty difficult to predict. If it rains maybe it will just be the organisers wink.

Do you think you'll make is SSM?

sethstarkaddersmum Fri 26-Nov-10 18:41:43

Yes, I have arranged to stay over at my brother's in Leeds afterwards.
Can't wait!

Have been given instructions on proper marching by 5yo DD:
'Remember Mummy, knees up high, swing your arms, and shout 'Slogans! Slogans!' as loud as you can.'

JessinAvalon Sat 04-Dec-10 13:27:03

Have a great time, everyone! I'm too far away to join you but will be there with you in spirit. I loved taking part in the Bristol march in the spring.

ReclaimtheNightLeeds Sat 04-Dec-10 22:54:39

Hope you had your knees up and swung your arms grin
