Cheers Stan - thank you ! Got my email this morning - and I am still coming to Leeds ! I know Leeds hardly at all , but I have a good friend ( not an LC fan ! ) who goes there frequently on business , so I will seek his advice to see if he knows a suitable pub - I guess most city centre pubs are walkable to the venue. I can remember a lovely old historic pub , but it might be a bit small if we have a good turnout - if its only you and me we should be fine ! Will post soon Steve

Ok Steve, I think we have plenty of time to organise, I'm in work now so a short letter, but do keep in touch and likewise.

Hi I would like to have a meetup. Me and my sis so count 2! There is an old quaint real ale pub on Brigate which is just off the Headrow so not next to the Arena but walkable.

Hi there, am not a local to leeds, but local to you Stan! We are staying at the Hilton Doubletree, got it for £96 for 2 nights via lastminute.com and a 10% off voucher for said company from vouchercodes! I just love a bargain!
There are cheaper options, the travelodge is just off the Headrow, for example, and there is a premier inn right by the arena.

Yes we can meet there at 4.. look forward to it!!

there it is... for anyone that is not familiar with Leeds.

If we get a few more people along I will get in touch with them and tell them we are coming.
