Northgate had so much fun at our 25th Anniversary celebration last year that we’re doing it again this Saturday, 28th October. Oh yes, Bath Time lives!
This time we’ve invited two very special guest teams to join us. Firstly a relatively new side from Bridgnorth, called Shropshire Sharpshins. Just a few years old, the lads and lasses of that beautiful town have stormed festivals, pubs and indeed whisky shops in the West Midlands, especially Shrewsbury Festival and of course Bridgnorth itself. They have some very innovative figures and more energy than seems fair.
Oh, and they have a true TV star from Countdown, but he can rest assured that we will make no stupid jokes on that subject. Because we’re grownups.
But who are the other team?
The other team are, to put it bluntly, not quite as young as the Sharpshins. Indeed, some of them would give Methuselah a run for his money.
They are the delightful, if gin-soaked, ladies of Mabel Gubbins.
They come from the screaming spires of Oxford and bring with them a spectacular display full of vim, vigour and quite possibly spunk.
So what’s the plan?
Well, we have as much of a plan as we ever have, inasmuch as we know the starting pub, the end pub and even all the pubs in between, although not necessarily the timings. But the plan so far is:
11:00 Start dancing! First pub is The amazing Curfew.
After that, with no particular timing:
The Barley Mow
The Pulteney Arms
The Ale House
The New Inn
Old Green Tree (if our guests are tough enough)
Pig & Fiddle
…then back to The Curfew around 16:30 for food and final dances.
So, twelve pubs in a reasonably short time. It’s entirely possible that more dancing, or even more drinking, might take place after this.
Keep an eye on Facebook for last-minute changes, photos on the day and descriptions of any interesting injuries as they happen.
See you there!
