We're playing the 'private party' aspect by ear (because the people who run the Carlton are cool like that); if the weather's nice and everybody ends up outside anyway then there will be no point in making it 'private'.
The pub serves food. If enough people look like they're going to be coming, I will probably try to organise some sort of buffet as well.
Please let me know if you're planning on coming. Really, I know RSVPs are boring, and I know I'm dreadful at doing them, but please do. :)
There will be some bedspace/crashspace available but we don't have as much of it as we used to. Ask if you need it.
Feel free (but not obliged) to bring partner(s), friends, siblings, badgers, etc. Especially badgers.
I already know some people can't make this date, & I'm sorry; I'm not trying to exclude you, but this is literally the only date in May that I can do!
Email if you need more information.
