Penny loves a jaunt, so gleefully dusted off her carriage and headed to Manchester last week for the Biba conference.
Penny was undaunted by hoardes of thirsty attendees, but was not expecting throngs of Miley Cyrus fans exiting the Phones 4 U arena as she attempted to get home from an Allianz dinner. Thus what was a 10-minute walk for some turned into a 45-minute coach journey for others, including several laps around the Co-operative Group’s £100m head office. Penny didn’t spot the massive twerker herself but understands one conference attendee stayed in a neighbouring room, presumably with some earplugs. Also making an effort to enjoy the Manchester night life this week were Biba boys Graeme Trudgill and Andy Thornley, who reportedly ventured into a student bar after enjoying chuckles at the Comedy Store. Trudgill and Thornley claim to have been unaware that their chosen drinking hole would be home to quite so many lithe young ‘uns, but nonetheless called Biba boss Steve White to see if he would join them. White, clearly less of a party animal, was prepared for bed in his hotel room. The hour? 11.30pm. If only Penny made it to bed so early!
