I spoke to the hotel we are using for this year’s Bash and they told me they are calling it ‘An International Blogging Conference’.
Super cool, eh? Though the Boss, Her Sachaness , wants ‘Bash’ because, well, she does so that’s that then.
Anyhoo I’m here for three reasons:
One… So why haven’t you bought you ticket yet? You know who you are. The one at the back looking sheepish. Yes, you Lozenge Minor. I mean you. Stop mewling boy and buy your ticket. Of course you’ll enjoy it. It’s made of ice cream, like last year’s Bash only with added sprinkles. And fairy dust.
For all the Lozenge Minors out there, tickets cost £10 each and can be purchased by clicking here.
Two, nominations have closed and we’ve had LOADS… I mean they can be seen from space they are so HUGE…
Some of you puppies have been nominated for more than one award which is kinda of neat and all…
… except you can’t be. Her Whipness decreed only one per person and stop jostling Lozenge, boy, or it’ll be another detention. Which means we will be emailing you over the next couple of days to ask you to choose which award you’d like to be nominated for. You’ll then have until
Sunday 14th May 7pm (BST)
to choose which you want to try for. If anything fails – we get the email wrong, we’ve been given the wrong address, you don’t see the message, it goes to spam, you fail to reply in time, Donald Trump sacks the Boss (stop it)…
WE WILL CHOOSE FOR YOU
We’d love to give you a right of appeal, the chance to bribe us, to flood the net with gratuitous compliments, but we don’t have time. Soz and all that but, hey, suck it up, ok?
Third and, well tickle me pick Captain Scott, this is where we are going.
Smart eh? It has its own monogrammed cloud that floats above the entrance, dappling the guests in a sepulchral ambience. For those who like to note these things this is the address. The Wellington Suite in the Grange Wellington Hotel. 71 Vincent Square, Westminster, London SW1P 2PA on Saturday 10th June 2017.
It’s super convenient too, being a couple of stone throws and a gnats’ widdle from Victoria Station. This is Victoria. Meah, moving on…
I will be updating you on the route but here are a few local highlights.
And finally, as a real teaser here is a Goad plan. A who? A wotsit?
Okay, if you’ve never worked in commercial property in the UK that sentence is about as enlightening as the George Bush Dictionary of Compound Adjectives. It’s a street map centred on a commercial district – in this case Victoria station – showing all the retail occupiers. So if you’re after a snack and prefer Costa to Pret then this will direct you.
Aren’t I good?
We’ve also put together a FAQ for the event, which you can view here, so if you have any questions, check out the FAQ first. However, don’t hesitate to ask any questions if you can’t find what you’re looking for.
