Will have to pass on this - we have just booked tickets to take risky to 'white' at the pla6house in may. I know dh is really looking forward to taking risky on her first theatre trip, so I can't take her to this beforehand!

Think this got a bit lost... just realised it's next week! Is anyone still up for it? How many do we need for critical mass? Are we too late to get tickets?

Sorry to be so late to reply to this. I really wanted to go, but have decided I just can't justify the expense. £13 for me and £11 each for the girls. :(

So, back to the drawing board - any other suggestions for a Yorkshire meet? We should still be able to fit a spring one in before it becomes summer! ;)

Me too Steeler - although I'm a bit tempted by Barnsley which is a fair bit cheaper, but on a Sunday and I'm pretty sure DH will say it's not his thing...

Anyway, back to a meet - looking back it looks like the best day for those who said is a Thurs - the most awkward for me as it's Jiglet's half day at nursery but depending how far we could probably make it for a bit.

What are Thursdays looking like for everyone over the next few weeks and any ideas for where?

I can do Thursday - H is in preschool so as long as she doesn't need me and I'm miles away, knowing my luck!

We have treated ourselves to a family ticket for the ballet, 40 quid for 4 of us, just saying in case anyone else is going. I work wed, Thursday, Fri term time normally so unlikely to make a proper meet.

Sapling - thanks for that, I hadn't noticed the Barnsley date! I might take Stompy myself and leave Squeak with DP for the afternoon.

Thursdays are good for me (although I *think* sapling that the next flexi meet for the Babywearers might be Thurs 26th). I'm rubbish at suggesting locations though!
Am I right in thinking Leeds seems to be the most central? I certainly don't fancy going much further north than that, and I don't think North York people like angeldelight want to come any further south...
Any Leeds people got any suggestions?

LB2K+1 - I hope we do get to meet you after September! :) I should be pretty flexible then too! :D

Well, it all depends on what you want to do!

Indoors - in the centre, the City museum has a toddler area and plenty of interactive stuff plus a large central Hall which is great for very little ones to run around in - as long as its not got an exhibition in it. My two love it - there are dressing up opportunities, the changing exhibition on the top floor always has something aimed at little children. And the cafe is great and very baby friendly. Wagamamas and Tampopo aren't far away either.

Nearer to me is the Toddler-Magnet that is Tropical World. We lived in it for a couple of years. THe downside is that the cafe there is rubbish but its an easy walk to Street Lane shops where there are several options inc Pizza Express.

Outdoors - If you all drive, then Temple Newsam is fabulous on a good day. The farm is always good for LO's. the gardens are good for a gallop. Cafe not good so I'd picnic for that one.

A bit north of us Harewood is always a full day out - adventure playground, lakeland walks, red kites, second hand bookshop and the Bird Garden. CAfe is good and spacious - but best if you can eat outdoors in the courtyard.

South of Leeds - apologies to the northerly contingent - you have Cannon Hall Farm, Yorkshire Sculpture Park and Nostell Priory. All fine days out.

North of us - Thorp Perrow, Fountains Abbey & Newby Hall. But prob all too far for the SHeffield contingent.

Once again, if we can make it, we will - but car and nursery constraints apply!

Wow, Lin, you should be a tour guide! Thanks for all the info.

I've been to Harewood, agree was really good. Might be a good bet if it's more central than some of the other places.

Most Thursdays good for us April / May.
