5e D&D: Lost Mine of Phandelver, from Spring 1484 DR

Preparatory Notes
Current plan is to start Lost Mine of Phandelver on Monday 1st December (7pm at the Counting House) then Monday 8th December; probably then break for Xmas and resume 5th January & 12th January. Should be fortnightly after that. The campaign is designed to go from levels 1-5 and my guess would be that is roughly 10 sessions, not sure though.
Dice are good and either the PHB or the Basic players' rules - Basic Rules for Dungeons & Dragons | Dungeons & Dragons - but you don't strictly need any rules for the starter set campaign. There are pregen PCs here - http://media.wizards.com/downloads/dnd/StarterSet_Characters.pdf - I have print-outs & the box copies so you wouldn't need to bring your own. You can either choose one of these & customise (eg they need a name, & background can be tweaked as desired) or you can make your own 1st level PCs in advance with the Default Array 15 14 13 12 10 8; if you make your own PC you may still want to use elements of the pregen characters' backgrounds. 
I have a house rule I'm planning to use to give 1st level PCs more hit points, but we can do that on the night.
