    We can do Manchester cheaper from Birmingham in the same way as Sheffield. For Sheffield we get the off peak return to Derby then use the Wayfarer scratchcard ticket to Sheffield. (Buy them half a dozen at a time as we like Sheffield!)

    Not done Manchester the cheap way before, but it is I believe an off peak return to Macclesfield then a wayfarer type ticket for Manchester. We usually stay in Bury for Manchester so not tried the train trip. It is amazing how much cheaper these alternatives are.

    Currently OK for those four Fridays in March, but would be good to decide and fix sooner rather than later.

    Also more than OK for another trip OOOp North... and would prefer Sheffield or Derby (yes i know that's technically the Midlands but its North for me.. ) as these are great Ale towns I haven't done for many a moon..

    Having broken my duck on the 14th, it looks as if I will miss the next one. I definitely can't make 6 or 13 Mar, and probably not the 20th either. Could make 27th, but BF can't make that date so probably not the front runner!

    I have just realised that I can just switch my commitment back a week and can now make March 27th There were no other objections to that date,and if we need a quick decisions to accomodate Gann how about this date ??

    We could then have a poll to decide the venue from the above mentioned runners.Not being very techie,I dont know how to set up a poll.Can anyone help ?

    Just checked the price for Huddersfield. £36.15 each direct, but if we get returns to Derby £9.50 each, then use a Wayfarer to Sheffield £6 each, then return to Huddersfield £6.10 each total £21.60 each. Stupid really. National rail was taking us by Stockport instead of Sheffield for £30 more.

    Are we settled on Friday, 27th March?

    If so, advance train tickets should be on sale round about 2nd January.
