Thu 27 November - Berry Brothers Port Walk

Post by AHB » 13:01 Wed 02 Jul 2014

Berry's have just released details of their Autumn Calendar events to their Cellar Plan customers. Tickets for the Port Walk on either Thursday 27th or Friday 28th are now available.

I have booked a ticket for Thursday 27th.

I don't see details for non-Cellar Plan customers yet but have emailed (and have asked for three tickets: me, RAB and AW77).

Does this mean that we might see Daniel and LGTrotter in the same room at the same time?

And André too!
But one of us will have to be Julian, because it will have sold out by the time he's allowed to buy a ticket.
Julian, would you like one of us to get one for you?

The auguries seem propitious. Readers will note that it is actually Julian who 'claims' he cannot get a ticket.

It's a clever ruse. One of them will always be in the bathroom.

I bought two, with a few people in mind who could use the second. I'll hang on and see if you get a ticket and if not you can have my second.

That's OK. If you get it then great. If not, and Julian can't get one, he can have my second.

I have a new best friend at BBR: " don't worry about bothering me, that's what I'm here for," she replied to my email. I have 4 tickets now so Julian's place is assured.
