In Autumn conferences past, bloggers have met together for a special “Liberal Drinks” during the conference week.

A few of us on the LDV team have been wondering whether to organise a get-together at Liverpool’s Spring conference.ย  It is always a little trickier to manage at Spring because conference is shorter and so many events are packed into less time.

Still, we’re wondering about running the usual, informal gathering at a good pub with nice beer, probably on the Friday night.ย  It could be a chance to meet up with old friends and new, and put faces to URLs.

There are a few clashes on Friday night, but not nearly so many as on Saturday evening, when amongst the many activities are the Campaign for Gender Balance blog awards, heavily trailed here on LDV, and after that, the Glee Club.

If you’re interested in a pub night on Friday, let us know in the comments.ย  We’re particularly keen to hear from people with local knowledge able to suggest a suitable pub too.

    Having just joined the Liberal Drinks Facebook group ๐Ÿ™‚ I would like to sample a little of this. But I know very little of Liverpool so I may just wait for whtever recommondation takes my fancy ๐Ÿ™‚

  • There’s a Lib Dems in PR gathering in the hotel bar at about 7pm – details on Facebook.

  • The “CONNECT” group is also meeting up Saturday night at the PanAm Bar & Restaurant for 7.45pm.

    Its a members only gathering, you can join the group through Facebook and then attend the event.

    Many on LDV are already members and know of the group for those that don’t have a look at the Facebook to get a flavour of what we are about.
    Jenny Williot will be our special guest for the night.

  • Friday night sounds good – if people want to ‘warm up’ they can grab some free drinks at the LGA reception first, and then get stuck into some serious drinking thereafter!

    An Australian member of the ‘Blackler diaspora’, I am amazed to learn that a British pub bears my name! Whilst egalitarian Australia dispensed with the Imperial honours system in 1975, having a pub bear your name is an acceptable distinction.

    @ MichaelBG, "This makes 2.43 million." Right. But we can't assume they all voted leave.
