Many of you who attended last years Large event will remember what a great success it was. For those who didn't attend here's a (very brief) summery: The concept was very simple, we got a Brewery to make us some real life "Large" & held a Sproutlore event in a Derby pub so you could all drink it. Sound good? Well were doing it all again in 2005 as well, on the 27th & 28th of May.
The location will once again be The Alexandra Hotel in Derby. We will be changing the pubs name for one day only to The Flying Swan.
The 2005 event will be "Larger" (get it?) that last years in several ways. 1st of all it is we are planning to make it a 2 day event. A pub crawl on the Friday, as only we at Sproutlore can do & the Large event proper on the Saturday.
The Pub Crawl will see us take in some of the lovely Public Houses round the City of Derby which we will (just for the hell of it) be, unofficially, naming after pubs in Roberts books. So look forward to supping pints in The Shrunken Head & The Four Horsemen amongst others. The exact route & pubs are yet to be confirmed, but I've got a good idea of where we'll be going.
For those traveling to the event on Friday we will be gathering at The Alex 6:00 - 7:30 & The Brunswick 7:30-9:00.
The main Large event will be held in The Alex (sorry The Swan) and as the month of May is more temperate than January we should be able to enjoy some out-door drinking this time round. We'll try to get some Live Music set up this time & also plan to hold a bit of a barbeque on the Beer Garden. Along with all the usual beer drinking, toot talking, raffle drawing, auction holding fun you've come to expect from a Sproutlore event.
