The Grain Store overlooks Parker's Piece, which is a square green common. We will start with games, before we head in for a meal and drinks. For anyone coming to just the evening session, we should be found in the quadrant nearest the pub.
Games on Parker's Piece
We will bring some frisbees, rugby balls and footballs. Feel free to bring any other sports equipment to keep the kids and bigger kids happy.
We will head to The Grain Store pub after games on Parker's Piece. The tables on the top floor of the pub have been reserved from 7.30pm for meals.
The Grainstore has recently been renovated (and is now even nicer) and has also just expanded their range of food to include steaks, chicken, short rib and fish and chips (whilst retaining very good vegetarian options), some of which has yet to be added to the website (link below). We will be asking people closer to the day for their food choice, to assist the restaurant.
A recent article on the new pub:
In the event of bad weather, following the morning session, there is the option of the the Fitzwilliam Museum (Trumpington St, CB2 1RB), which houses incredible exhibitions (it is like a smaller version of the British Museum), which people can wander around for free.
For those travelling a fair distance, options for accommodation include:
- Premier Inn - Cambridge City East
- Premier Inn - Cambridge North (Girton)
- Travelodge - Newmarket Road
- Travelodge - Central Cambridge
- Googlemaps search of hotels in Cambridge
For those wanting to visit on a shoestring and in possession of a tent, you will be free to pitch up in my back garden in Cherry Hinton, which is a village on the outskirts of the city, but message me first if you are planning this (full details will then be provided!) :)
There is lots of parking spaces in the Grand Arcade, the Grafton West Car Park and others:
Information on Park and Ride locations is found here:
We look forward to seeing you all there!
