We survived! And we have photographic proof!
Thanks to Chris Gutteridge for the following snaps - I've scanned some of the better ones in, but the rest should be following in a few days.

We're having an open house from the 29th December to the 5th January, and this page contains material of use to those who want to come.
The four mails that have been sent:    
Our glorious venue, the delightful (and oh-so-bijou) Millennium Bunker.
The University of Bath has a page describing how to get to the university which is fairly comprehensive and covers most modes of transport bar hot air balloon and camel train. Once you get to the university, we have a map showing where Isobel's flat is. We'll sort out parking as you arrive, but we doubt that there'll be any difficulties there.
If there are any problems, give us a ring on 01225 826947 (Isobel's home number) and we'll do our level best to point you in the right direction. If you decide to ask a local, Isobel's address on campus is Eastwood Lodge 3.
We're both going to be going home to our respective folks for Christmas. I'll be at Isobel's in Bath for the weekend of the 18-19th December (01225 826947 - answerphone available) and back in Essex from Monday 20th December (01708 225980 - you may need to leave a message with my parents). We'll both be back in Bath from the evening of the 28th December.
