Phil Emond is trying to sort a this years event in Leeds and he has found a very good City Centre Hotel. Dates Friday to Sunday 6th to 8th April 2018. The price for two nights would be without breakfast Single Room £135.00 or Twin or Double £67.50 each for the two nights that's plus Mini Bus Fuel and Beer Money! Their are at last count 9 Wetherspoons in Leeds so that should not be a problem for those who take breakfast. 26 pubs are in the GBG with 16 in City area and I am certain plenty of Craft Beer Bars. Leeds is about 4 and half hours away all Motorway nearly to Hotel Door. Will take first 14 to book, 3 seats gone already and I have had at least 3 interested not on Committee. So please give me your thoughts, positive or not if you wish to go. I will leave this open until Friday 2nd of February before making a decision and final price including mini bus, or consulting again. Contact Phil Emond.
