The Doggett's Coat And Badge pub are letting us use one of their function rooms all day long. We'll be there to open up at 9:00, and will be leaving at 10:30 to get a train to the start of the pride walk. The door will be locked while we aren't there!
Once the walk is finished we'll take our group photo as normal before heading back to the pub, expecting to arrive there at 3:30ish where there will be a buffet lunch at 4:00! You'll be able to stay in the pub till late to talk to people, have fun, play, pup out and relax.
We will be bringing our soft flooring and toys to the event, but the ball pit will have to stay packed due to space.
The venue has a very large smoking area, and while you need to walk through the rest of the pub to get to it, we've confirmed that you won't need to cover up to use it.
The £15 charge for the event covers the cost of your food and a drinks voucher for any soft drink (barring Red Bull). The costs to us are £12.05 for food (£10.95 + Service Charge), and £3 for the drinks voucher. We are NOT making any profit from this event (in fact we lose 5p per person!)
Please let me know if you have any specific dietary requirements so I can pass them onto the kitchen.
