On December 12th we all went up to Birmingham for an evening of fun. We started with a meal at Cafe Rouge in the Mailbox, and then the brave amongst us went on the outdoor skating rink, watched with admiration by those not so brave! Thankfully there were no broken wrists. After that we moved on to the Big Wheel for a trip into the chilly, breezy night sky. We only explored a little of the German Market before the minibus beckoned us home.
The intinerary for the evening was arranged a little late in the day as we had been hoping to see Culture Club at the NIA, but the concert had been cancelled because of problems with Boy George's vocal cords.
