Just you and me then!

Do you reckon it would be OK to bring my older DD (6) or realistically... i'm not am I as the subject matter will be too upsetting. I don't think there's a kids thing going on.

I'm the wrong person to ask ... I can imagine it might just be very boring. I'll see if anyone knows.

Last year there was a lot of discussion about violence against women and some graphic images, so probably not suitable for children.

Yes that was what I was thinking mooncup.

It was just a casual sort of a thought which I more or less dismissed as soon as it came, but thought worth mulling.

Are you going? I wouldn't mind a drinking rematch

Oh, so that's who you are, NiceTabard Smile

I'm probably not going this year - am doing another feminist thing on the Sat - but might be tempted along for a drink at some point. Would be good to see you!

Sounds as if other people are taking children, but there's nothing official organized.

I don't think I'd be able to do the evening part as DH is out for a curry in the eve. Dammit!

LRD I think if I do go I won't take her. You're right she will get bored and then I'll be distracted - not ideal!

I think so, yes. Am just vaguely hoping we'll bump into each other. Maybe we should wear badges? Grin

I should decide whether or not to go for it really shouldn't I!

I nearly went last year if that is any help? I bought tickets and liked the cloak and dagger email nearer the time about meeting strangers at strange tube stations Grin - could someone pm the details or is same site as before? It always seems to be when anyone with any sense is on holiday though.

I'll PM you. Please come, it'd be lovely.

Might be worth emailing them; I heard that quite a lot of people haven't booked yet due to uncertainty about the venue, so they may extend registration.

Thank mooncup.
I'm still undecided. DH isn't very well at the mo and I was kind of going to wait and see".
