Mr. Juicy is Alive!

An overripe fruit was accidently splashed with some sauce from a tin of alphabety spaghetti. This combined with the fruit and elemental forces caused the fruit to evolve. The nature of this fruit is irresponsible….. Jucieeeeeeeeee!

Christmas Parties in Narnia

I know its the middle of summer, but if you’re responsible for booking the office christmas parties, you probably should be looking around now. Theres a whole range of places doing the usual dinner and a disco. Theres a few places doing dinner and a band. But maybe you want something a little different?

How about Dinner in Narnia? Thats whats possible at the Heart Of England conference and events centre. Enter the rooms via a huge wardrobe door, walk through all the furcoats inside and arrive in time for drinks at the lamppost, far away from the land of Spare-oom. Have dinner then stay to enjoy the rest of the night, with Aslan making a special appearance.

For more info, see here on the HeartOfEnglands diary page.

 

Snowball Fiiiight!

So, we are on to week 5 of the Six Summer Saturdays events taking place this year, with Birmingham Hippodrome right in the centre of the action. My favourite event so far was a couple of weeks ago when Titan the Robot turned up..

That might just get beaten though! This Saturday, the 6th August, theres going to be a snow storm. Not one of those “I cant leave my house” ones, but one of those “its now over with and doesnt the world look pretty storms”

Now, for me, the chance to have a snowball fight, in the middle of Birmingham, in the middle of August when its just toooooo hot, is an opportunity not to be missed.

See you there, take cover!

PS. While this snow storm will have left a good couple of inches of snow on the ground in Chamberlin Square, uncannily the road and rail network is surprisingly unaffected – so it’ll still be nice and easy to get there.
