To half of our members who got the joke, yes our 'Beatles Yellow Submarine Underwater nightclub Party' was an April Fool's Day prank. For the half of you who fell for it, we're sorry to disappoint :-(
I think many people were suspicious as to how a massive 67 metre yellow submarine would manage to travel underneath the River Thames as it's only 6 feet deep in many part of central London.
Also, many members were very worried about the safety of holding a nightclub style Beatles party (with DJ, dancefloor and alcohol) on a submarine traveling underwater. One member even threatened reporting us to the Westminster Council health and safety department (I think they may have been joking though, but I'm not sure :-)
However, we are planning a special event - not quite as extreme but still a Saturday private hire coach trip to historic Bath in June/July (with a night out in London when we arrive home). I'll soon be sending an email to assess if there is enough interest for us to pay the coach deposit.
Hope you all had a great Easter holiday (and a great April Fools Day too).
