If you wish to attend the meet, could you please register using the link available from Future Events section of the SimSig web-site. The page is already available but registrations will not be taken until after the March Birmingham meet. It is important that people register even though there is no charge for the event so that we can advise the venue of the likely numbers attending. This will enable them to plan their catering accordingly.
Derby is served from various parts of the country by CrossCountry trains . A direct service is available from London on the Midland Main Line, provided by East Midlands Trains . Lots of local services mean access from other cities is easy. The pub is about 300 yards walking distance from the railway station main entrance: go out of the station's main entrance, turn right, walk across the car park entrance and up to the main road, cross the road at the pedestrian crossing, turn right, follow this road parallel to the railway and the pub is on the left-hand side shortly before the junction.
Bus services 1,1A( DO NOT USE THE F1 service as this goes a different route),6 and 73 run between Derby Bus Station and Derby Rail Station, passing The Brunswick. Information about these services is available from the Derby Connected web-site.
Coaches operated by National Express coaches use the new Riverlights bus station, so proceed as for local buses above. The local buses to the meet go from the same building.
There is no parking at the pub itself however there are several short- and long-stay car parks within a mile of it - SatNav users are advised to use the postcode DE1 1RU. There is on-street parking for up to 4 hours in some of the streets close to the venue. If you're staying overnight then your hotel or B&B might have parking.
Food is not being provided at this meet, but The Brunswick have a bar menu which can be viewed on their website .
Prices subject to change (although normally rather less expensive than many parts of the country). The pub has its own microbrewery on site and also serves a good range of other cask beers as well as the usual lagers, ciders and "smooth" beers. Drinks will be served from the main bar downstairs.
A Wifi network without internet access will be set up so that the multiplay of the sims being used can take place. The venue has free WiFi available for those requiring internet access.
