The voting for the next Trottinghamshire Bronies meetup date is now closed. The date for the next meetup is the 27th of April, however the plan for the meetup has now changed. We are now starting the meetup at the Costa Coffee in the entrance hall of Nottingham Train Station at 12:00 PM.
Then we will head over to The Johnston Arms at 12:30 via the Toton Lane tram (Getting off at Gregory Street) hopefully getting to the pub for 1 PM. An all day ticket for the tram costs £4.00 for a adult and £3.10 for a student.
The Johnston Arms has adequate table space for the people who enjoy playing card games during these meets, such as TSSSF and MLP CCG. If Pen and Paper RPGs are more of your thing, we will most likely be running a game of Tails of Equestria at the meetup if we have the time to. If playing table top games is not your thing there is a large beer garden out the back.
Route to The Johnson Arms from Meetup Start Point
The Reason for April's change of venue and meetup starting point.
To cut a long story short, after the feedback from the last meetup's attendees about the problems of the venue (Castle Pub), I tried and book the Lloyds No.1 Bar and the Cafe Sobar as they was included in the group's favourites for a new regular meetup place.
However while trying to book them I found out that both Lloyds No.1 Bar and the Cafe Sobar no longer do group bookings for weekends, because they can never know how busy there are going to be on a Saturday and Sunday.
So means there is a total of three places in the centre of Nottingham that no longer allow weekend bookings. Because of this I started doing research for venues further afield.
After talking to other meetup members The Johnston Arms has come up in conversations, but I haven't considered it before because in wasn't in the city centre, however that means that it's going to be less busy.
