Default NORFOLK / SUFFOLK MEET - Adnams Brewery Co - Fri 8th to Sun 10th July *


NORFOLK / SUFFOLK MEET

OK, here we go.... Norfolk Meet for 2016 to beat the 2014 and 2015 ones. As easy as ABCDEFGHIJ.

Adnams Brewery Company Devishly Excellent For Great Hangovers In July





Every bit below is optional.
Please come to any part of the weekend that you like.
Could be just the drive or just the drinking!
(note Essogirl did say all we do is Drive and Drink!)


FRIDAY 8th July:
OPEN HOUSE PARTY THINGY at Minvo and McMinny's for S2KUK members.
Buffet style finger food provided by Minvo and McMinny.
Bar will be open from early evening but please arrive whenever you like.
I will need to know who is coming so we have enough food so please let me know below.

ACCOMMODATION is available nearby so please contact me for suggestions if needed.



SATURDAY 9th July:
A DRIVE organised by Minvo around the lovely back roads of Norfolk and venturing abroad into a place called Suffolk.
Don't forget to bring your passports - I have heard they check them at the border.
Arriving at the lovely Southwold by late afternoon

A BREWERY TOUR at Adnams Brewery Company
Time to be confirmed but hopefully going to be at 5:00pm ish
A Maximum of 14 people can attend a tour at one time but we can arrange multiple tours (5:30 or 4:30pm)

AN EVENING MEAL at the Swan Hotel (Adnams Hotel)
We have a table booked in a private room called the "Southwold Room".
I will need to know ASAP if you wish to attend so I can book a table large enough.
Posh Menu: http://adnams.co.uk/wp-content/uploa...u-July2015.pdf
Bar Menu: http://adnams.co.uk/wp-content/uploa...u-July2015.pdf
Three courses included

ACCOMMODATION in the Swan Hotel (the Adnams owned hotel in Southwold)
I have 3 more CLASSIC rooms (reserved under my name) and now cannot get anymore.

Checkin from 2:30pm (although we won't arrive until later than this)
Checkout is 11am on the Sunday.
Please see post #6 below for up-to-date bookings and room reservations.
Payment is on departure and you can cancel two days beforehand (if you have an emergency).



SUNDAY 10th July:
BREAKFAST in the Swan Hotel (time to be arranged - hopefully not too early!)
Menu: http://adnams.co.uk/wp-content/uploa...u-July2015.pdf
LOL - You can add a Bucksfez to your breakfast for £5.50 !!

FREE DAY in Southwold to get over the Devishly Excellent F***ing Great Hangover
- Optional Distillery Tour or Make your own Gin sessions (please PM me for more information)
- Southwold is on the seaside so a walk down the beach or sunbathing are options
- Or you can find a pub and watch the newly rescheduled British Grand Prix.



Prices:
BREWERY TOUR is £12 per person and includes a beer bottle of your choice.
Tour will be organised by Chris.
More info here: https://tours.adnams.co.uk/

The Swan hotel is not a cheap hotel but you do have choices...
Normally the Swan is approx. £180 for double room per night
3-Course Evening Meal cost is £35 per person

I have managed to get a deal for us of:
£199 Per Couple (£140 for single occupancy)
Including Evening Dinner, Bed and Breakfast
(that's a Saving £51 per couple).


Superior Rooms available for £30 more (if your feeling rich - no not Rich, rich)
Premier Rooms are also available for £60 more but these are in the Main Hotel (Swan I think?)


However, you are more than welcome to find a cheaper hotel in Southwold and you don't even need to join us for dinner (but drinks later in the pub are mandatory!).



How to Book:
So to book yourself onto the Norfolk/Suffolk meet it's also as easy as ABC
A: Contact Laura Dobson on 01502 722275 and reserve a room - please mention Steve Minns, S2000 owners club and also mention the £199 price! You will need to give credit card details but will not be charged until you leave on the Sunday 10th July.
B: Update Minvo so he knows you are coming. I will need to know if you are coming to everything or which parts you might want to miss!
C: Spread the word so others come too.




So, please get yourself signed up... NOW!

Yes please for all of it - we will take one of the rooms at The Crown if that's OK.

We'll make sure to take the Friday afternoon off this time and get to Norfolk in good time for bar opening!

I'm assuming the £199 is for just one night which is a bit steep for us so we'll probably look for an alternate hotel.
Andy,

No worries on it being a little bit too far in the future. I just wanted to get the date up so people could plan holidays etc. You know me!

More than happy for people to book their own cheaper accommodation but please note single night £199 does include £35.00 x2 for evening meal = £70, plus breakfast (which is normally £16 each!) = £32 which makes the accommodation about £97 - which is slightly expensive but not as expensive as other places we have stayed.

Happy Steve (as he is back to work tomorrow and feeling a little better)

Gary - I was at least expecting one of the room upgrades for you ?!?!?!
I am tempted myself...



Added you to the lists.
