Default Biggin Hall Mini-Meet - 1pm Sunday Lunch, 3rd Nov 2019






Apologies for the short notice but, since we're well overdue for a northern mini-meet this year, and rapidly running out of time to get one in before the end of the year, a few of us have arranged a mini-meet at the lovely Biggin Hall, which some of you will remember if you attended last year's annual meet at the Peak District.

https://www.bigginhall.co.uk/restaur...unch-menu.html

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/d...in-hall-hotel/

Meet-up is at 1pm on Sunday November 3rd, and we'll be eating shortly after that.

For anyone wishing to stay over, there are (presently) just 3 or 4 rooms still available for Saturday night but numerous rooms available for the Sunday night.
Contact Biggin Hall directly if you'd like to book a room: 01298 84451



EVERYONE is welcome to come along, even if you're not dining or plan to turn up in something other than an 8*



* Lesser vehicles may however be required to use a different car park





If you're thinking of coming along, please add your name to the thread, including the number of people, and whether or not you'll be dining, so that we can let Biggin Hall know in advance.
