25th August Tall Persons Annual Dinner and Dance Peterborough

And so the location for the 2024 “Annual Doo” and Gala Dinner is.... Peterborough!

And so the location for the 2024 Annual Doo and Gala Dinner is.... Peterborough!

 

This compact City is set in the heart of Cambridgeshire, with a fascinating history, commencing as a Bronze Age Settlement, and growing around the site of the 7th Century Medeshamstede Abbey that evolved into the Cathedral that stands in its centre today. Apart from exploring the past there is opportunity to do some interesting touristy, sporty, socially things as a part of the “Annual Doo” weekend. Peterborough can be accessed by road – close to the A1 and is a hub for two rail lines – The East Coast Line connecting London and the North, with several train service providers including LNER and Thameslink and the Midlands line accessing Birmingham and beyond. Rail services connect to Peterborough from Stanstead, East Midland and Birmingham airports.

 

We have booked a four star hotel, The Bull, for our Gala Dinner on Sunday 25th August 2024 and put a hold on blocks of rooms. As in the last few years, we will organise and sell tickets for the Gala Dinner and allow attendees to select their own accommodation according to preference, including as an option, the rooms that we have blocked out for us at the Bull at a substantially discounted rate. We will also scope interest, and likely book a number of events allowing people to sign up for them  through our web shop as a part of our “Annual Doo”.This year, to encourage early booking and to establish numbers, we have structured pricing for the event with Early Bird discounts, to offer better value. You will be responsible for choosing, booking and paying for your own accommodation. There are a range of other accommodation options, including Airbnb and several smaller hotels, if that is your preference; www.bookings.com shows a range of such options....

 

  • Gala Dinner ticket prices are down this year to £60 per person, These can be obtained at Gala Dinner Ticket. Ticket Booking will close on 7th August 2024.

  • The Bull Hotel negotiated rates per night are:

    • £95 double occupancy B&B and £85 single occupancy B&B are available for bookings made prior to 5th June 2024.

    • After 5th June, these rates or availability at the Bull are not guaranteed.

    • Call the hotel directly on 01733 561364 and ask for Vicky Bell, reservations, quoting 66412 in your booking

    • If calling is difficult please email Vicky at rooms@bull-hotel-peterborough.com

    • These rates are guaranteed for the Saturday and Sunday nights until our room quotas are reached

    • These rates are available on a best endeavours and availability basis for early or later nights around the weekend

 

We are currently negotiating for our usual informal gathering on the evening of Saturday 24th August at a venue nearby.... which is likely to be both fun and popular. Drink and food will be available. We are also in discussion for a privately lead walking tour of Peterborough and a handful of other options, if sufficient interest is expressed....

 

More details will follow in the brief that we prepare, update and issue several times ahead of the Doo.

 

After an optional brief late afternoon AGM to cover the business of TPC GB & Ireland Limited Company, we will commence our Gala Dinner with a reception drink at 1900hrs, sitting down to dine at 1930hrs for a three course and tea/coffee dinner before Dancing commences to our DJ and Disco until the small hours.... Drinks vouchers will be included for all attendees, with the number of vouchers being adjusted to balance ticket price and overall event cost. A cash bar is also available when the vouchers run out..... <grin!>

 

This is a great opportunity to reconnect with tall friends and for those who are newer to the club, or attending for the first time, to experience the joy of being around other Tall folks – many taller than you – and experiencing looking up in “High Level conversations!”
