Friday, December 9th, 2016

It seems the only thing I use this site for now is to update the Worcester Wassail guide!

WWXI – Eleventh Worcester Wassail – 12th December 2015

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

It's that time of year again. We pack ourselves into the car and drive to the fine city of Worcester to drink twelve pints of ale of varying quality in 12 establishments. We have to do this in Worcester because clearly there is a shortage of pubs in Manchester. This year's ...

WWX – Worcester Wassail 10 – 20th December 2014

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

Wow - it's been ten years. I only lived in Worcester for six months and it's been down to the regulars that have made journeys from Manchester, Chester, Birmingham and London that have kept it going! This year's Wassail pubs are: Cap ‘n’ Gown Lamb and Flag The Dragon ...

The Didsbury Dozen 19th November 2011

Friday, November 18th, 2011

This is a departure from our standard route - we're going classic.  With the reopening of Ye Olde Cock it's *almost* possible to do a proper pub crawl in just East Didsbury again.  This is going to be controversial as a lot of people love The Metropolitan (not me!). As we're going back ...

Tomorrow is our bi-annual Didsbury Dozen.  Previous years have had over 70 people in attendance (though it’s fair to say most aren’t there from the start so haven’t really *done the dozen..). Every year I create  route guide – one because I enjoy doing it and two because it limits the ...

Friday, December 4th, 2009

Here it is!  The route guide for the fifth annual Wassail! I moved to Worcester in August 2006. I loved the history and small feel of this lovely city in the West Midlands... but something was missing. Yup - A twelve pub, pub crawl. Luckily my new work colleagues shared this ...

Hello world!

Saturday, March 29th, 2008

I've totally rethought my site. I've moved to Word Press to allow me to upload content more easily (why re-invent the wheel!). As a result a lot of my older pages are in a rubbish format - I'll slowly convert them over but I don't see the motivation for that ...
