I would like to gauge opinion on the potential popularity of a Simon themed 'party weekend' - location & dates open to suggestions - to allow us fans to actually meet each other.

Your thoughts would be interesting to read.

Clare,

I completely agree with this idea. Suggestions for the location, I don't have. I have to come from Belgium, so I always have to make a trip.
But I certainly would like to come.
Perhaps a small suggestion, can you do it in a town that has an airport?
It might make things easier for a lot of fans from this site.

Thanks for your replies Heidi and Becky, much appreciated. A selfish attitude would suggest Glasgow but I was thinking of Bristol, Newcastle or Liverpool. I'll duck for that last suggestion Becky - I appreciate the rivalry there!

A final decision on the location depends on the response because a central point would only be fair for everyone. The idea of Bristol is a possibility - not central I know - because Casualty is filmed there.

Please don't fight about it :lol:
I agree with Bristol so we can try to visit the location where Casualty is being recorded.
Perhaps we can try to get us a part in an episode :D

What would the minimum amount of people be before we could seriously think about organising something? I believe also, that if/when a location and date(s) is decided upon, we should all meet up at that particular airport/train or bus station and begin the party together.

Thanks for all contributions.

If you're going to do that don't organise it through here the Beeb aren't keen on people visiting the set, and I'd like to respect that decision by not allowing any public information about it, so don't post the address anywhere here.

So not Bristol as it would be too tempting. If you are arranging anything through this site, remember it's my(site/name) reputation on the line, I'd like to keep my name good, please

We wouldn't possibly in any shape or form blacken the fantastic reputation of Shelliwood.com, the man himself or Casualty. We truely appreciate the amazing work all parties do. No danger there I would hope.

Suggestions are still open to offer. How does Blackpool sound to you guys? I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but a 'feel good' fun location.

Kerri

It's approximately 3 hours or so away from me also. I expect no matter the location, it's going to be a journey of some sorts for everyone.

Since Bristol isn't being recommended, other options are going to have to be looked at. Being honest, I don't particularly fancy London. Yes, it's easily accessible and a lovely city but not for me. Sorry (x million)

Blackpool, Liverpool... any pool will do for me. :wink:
Just as long that I can get there easily by plane, than I don't see a problem. Or I should put my glasses on and I see problems everywhere :oops:
Give all the names of the towns that you all prefer and I will write them down on a small paper. I put it in a hat and I will draw one paper. The name of the town on that paper will be the name of the place we will go to. I think that is the best solution. :idea:

Liverpool and Blackpool are over 300 miles for me. It'd take me all day to get there. :lol:
