MGEITF Itinerary

V excited about my Edinburgh trip and looking forward to rocking up at the Conference Centre with my new Corporation posse. Yeah!

Anthony has sent through an itinerary for my weekend away. A little bit furious about the travel arrangements, but Anthony tells me that only "Thommo, Byfield, Paxman and Fifi are being flown up this year, and that the rest of you must take the train to do our bit for carbon offsetting" [whatever the fuck that's supposed to mean].

Anyway:

FRIDAY
08.00 - Depart Kings Cross (GNER First-Class + full English breakfast on board. Don't worry, you can have Kosher- I have checked)
13:00 - Arrive and check in @ The Witchery (Ref: 6e74f01. You're booked into the Guardroom)
15:00 - Late lunch with Sharon Horgan @ David Bann (best vegetarian in town!)
20:30 - Post McTaggart dinner with Barron, Fifi, Paxman et al
22:00 - Free time

SATURDAY
08:00 - Breakfast with Alex Zane @ The Malmaison re: his spunky format ideas for The Kids (Remember to listen to XFM podcast on iPod beforehand. Call Alex to confirm 07828 456899)
10:00 - Controller Session prep time @ hotel (Herring will call to give final pointers on how to manage the Q&As)
12:00 - Early lunch with Hincksy (Venue TBC) re: squash weekend in November
13:45 - Meet Kathryn Flett & Neale Simpson in the 'Blue Room 3' upstairs (ask any steward where this is)
14:00 - Controller Interview (Remember to take Coldplay music to play before you go on stage)
19:00 - Dinner with Abi Titmuss @ Martin Wishart to discuss Naughty Nurses: A Mischief Special and Being John Leslie's C**t
21:00 - Soho House party (then possibly meet Lauren Laverne 11.30pmish in Pond. She will call you to confirm)

SUNDAY
07.45 - check-out of hotel (not forgetting to sign the hotel guestbook!)
08:00 - Breakfast with Lauren Hennessy at The Caledonian re: Vernon Kay travel show idea
09.00 - 2nd Breakfast with James Herring @ The Scotsman
10:00 - 14:00 Free Time
15.20 - depart Edinburgh Waverley, arrive Kings Cross 21.48 (sorry, no first-class left, and engineering works mean you have to change at Peterborough, then get a bus to Hatfield and wait until 21.20 to get fast train into London. But at least you'll be doing your bit for the environment, and I'm proud of you for that!)

[REMEMBER: Take full credit for the success of Last Man Standing and HAVE FUN! Anthony x]
