    You're right there it was murder on a sunny Saturday in June, the school holidays don't bear thinking about. Apart from being ridiculously expensive, there is another problem with Brighton in that Southern Railway not only cancel half their trains but they seem to have permanently stopped doing cheap advance tickets. I don't know if Thameslink (or whatever they call themselves now) do them at all. There's a pretty rubbish gWr service from Bristol way but Cross Country services don't seem to go there at all now.

    I would be very happy to support the idea of Brighton as the next "southern" venue and March would be a very good time (Not March 30th Good Friday).I agree with others to avoid the summer months,so November is an alternative for Brighton in 2018.

    The Severn Valley Railway also sounds like a fun idea for a "midland" venue ,a bit more interesting than Coventry .Having said that if Coventry gets the nod,I know it quite well and there is probably just enough to get your teeth into for a PuG crawl.However it's not in the same league as Stockport.

    Brighton was definitely mentioned by someone during the Stockport do. Obviously an overnighter for me but probably not a problem with notice. March sounds good but not the first or last weekend, so that's 9th, 16th or 23rd. The South is next in line for a crawl I believe.

    Coventry is the venue for CAMRA's national AGM in April and I suspect a few of us may be there to watch CAMRA implode (or not) so a PuG do could be elsewhere for the Midlands crawl. The Severn Valley Railway would be a good summer crawl and it counts as Midlands, but we have mentioned the cost of tickets what with it being a preserved line.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    The last weekend is Easter.

    Brighton on one of these dates looks a possibility (but, although fairly close, it is still a ridiculous three changes of trains each way!).

    I can probably do either but have a slight preference for the 23rd.
