This years’ christmas party ended up a joint venture with White Noise productions in Manchester. Some of us decided to get the ball rolling early as we made the school-boy error of bookiing the meal waaaay too late in the evening, hence the seaweed and dog’s testicles weren’t exactly fully appreciated like they ought to be – once we finally found the table. After causing the bar staff at Fab Cafe to revert to emergency provisions of wine and Sambuca (or ‘Samy Bs) we all made feeble attempts at mopping up the ale with the finest of oriental cuisine, whilst forgetting even the most primitive of table manners, and then partied late into the night at the newly built Macdonald Manchester Hotel. First jobs on monday morning went in this order: G5s ON > kettle ON > sit around the brainstorming table to pick up the pieces. Thanks to everyone who managed to get it sorted out, it was a right laugh!
