Access to the accommodation is available from 3pm but you can arrive from 12 noon on Friday when lunch will be available while you wait for access to your room. There will be a Spice coordinator ready to meet you on arrival with a big smile and warm welcome and they will direct you either to the dining room if you are in time for lunch or to your accommodation. After dropping your car off in the car park head inside, meet your roomies/house mates/coorindators /etc and then get ready for a party weekend. There will be some activities planned for the Friday afternoon but if that’s just too energetic grab a drink from the bar and chillout with the rest of us.
As this venue is a late replacement for the original National weekend location at Denstone College the only things set in stone at the moment are the meals and parties on Friday and Saturday nights, other than that it is all still in planning but rest assured that with all your coordinators involved there will be plenty of activities available throughout the weekend including walks, sports, a quiz and many social activities to keep you interested and occupied – a more detailed plan will be available nearer the weekend.
When it comes to the Saturday party theme we have decided to keep the original weekend theme of Circus as we know some of those that were original booked for Denstone had worked on costumes already and we don’t want to disappoint. This is a very broad ranging theme and should therefore give you plenty of scope to choose from. Spicers have proven time and time again to be brilliant at thinking outside the box so we look forward to seeing your creations, whether they be home made or bought. We know you will all look FABULOUS and remember fancy dress is optional but you do need to wear something!
The party on Friday night is a traditional disco (if Spice ever does traditional) and on Saturday we will have a fancy dress theme on Sunday and you will need to vacate your rooms by 12pm. We will have some activities external to the hotel available on the Sunday to keep you occupied and Sunday lunch will be an option at a local pub.
As always you can do as much or as little as you like during the weekend. The choice is all YOURS but the main thing is that we can all get together and enjoy a great weekend at last!
