    oooh so DB needs to find a pianist then (unless he is one himself?) and it does run in my mind that is Smoothwall's hotel but London does have a great number of Novotels so maybe its a different one?

    Novotel is better too, you're right. Should be in there ourselves.
    Well - looks like it from this post

    The same deal applies as previous years.If you want to meet upwith us in the evenign we'll treat you to a nice meal. We will also be putting on pizza at lunchtime for anyone who wants some (always popular given the price of food in Olympia!).
    Also we are still sorting out who is going to be on the stand, so please stop bomabrding me with PM's and email
    It's all rather nice, but I have to ensure that we don't have the situation we had last year where there were more stand staff than cubic meters on the stand itself!!We are in teh process of getting the manning plot sorted out and will notify people or ask for volunteers in due course.
    If anyone who was there at the 'end of BETT' meal in January, you will recall we must have had about 20+ people packed in that restruant!!!

    He told you it was 'duck'??

    Anyway, surely your biggest worry should be being wrapped in clingfilm and paraded around the show like a prize turnip. Those bruises gotta hurt
