    Anyone off to the Education Innovation thingy in Manchester

    Notwithstanding that I'll have to dig out my passport for the border crossing from the proper side of the Pennines to the "darkside" - Is anyone else planning visiting the show/conference in Manchester next month?

    Did anyone go last year (if it was on) and was it worth it?

    I have asked for permission to go on one of the days.

    Would love some feedback on people who have been before.

    I went last year and I thought it was pretty good. This year I'm hoping to bring an Assistant Head plus a few pupils for the Raspberry Jamboree event with which it's co-located.

    I'm on my way now. ICT co-ordinator was meant to be coming with me but circumstances prevailed.

    I did a bit of research yesterday and I'm all prepared...I know where there's a good real ale pub for lunchtime. :-D

    Now that'd be telling. ;-)

    It's called The Briton's Protection and it's just around the corner.

    Meet you at the Edugeek stand around lunchtime if you fancy a cheeky pint.

    I won't be there today unfortunately, but I'm around tomorrow if you're still there?

    Surely-bob am. Managed to wangle two days out of school. I'll test the water (beer) today and if it's no good there's always The Alibi tomorrow.

    Update: The Briton's Protection is well worth a lunchtime visit. 5 hand pumps and 300+ whiskies/whiskeys!
    Picture to follow.

    Oh, and they do food too. ;-)
