Forum meet up in London. Trafalgar Pub, Kings Road 10th Dec.

#1 Post by transforce »

Anyone fancy a pre-Christmas meet up? I've been meaning to organise something for a while. I only know two or three people from this forum, and not that well either, so think it could be a nice idea to sit, have a drink and talk PSB. A pub is the obvious choice, but I'm not fussed really.
I was thinking maybe somewhere in London,I know everybody is probably going to be very busy from now until then? Might be good if you are interested to post your availability. If I propose Saturday 10th December and we'll take it from there. This is the night of the New Order gig, not that I managed to get tickets :(
I myself live in Caterham, Surrey so obviously if there is another destination people have in mind that might be better then please suggest it.

Reflex in Croydon could even be an option? Perhaps a pub meet then a trip to the club? If this is far out for people then we'll reconsider. I lived in Croydon for 25 years so I know it isn't everyone's cup of tea :)

OK, so at the moment it's just me and Anne in London somewhere. Sorry you can't make it Andrew.
I can do any time after 2pm on Saturday, including the evening of course. I know this is very near Christmas, but it would be nice if some others could show up too. Is there no-one going uptown Christmas shopping that might like to pop in.
Probably would help if we had a venue. I rather like Charring Cross Road with all the bookshops etc (and Forbidden Planet ;). There is a Wetherspoons pub there which could be a good venue?

Or maybe somewhere near the Kings Road to make it even more PSB themed?

I could show you where that is......but if doing King's road for the meetup there's a pub there called the 'Trafalgar' and the shop is pretty much opposite (and to the left).

Brings back memories! I remember the meeting in the pub near Trafalgar Square
before Dresdner Sinfoniker and Pet Shop Boys presented Battleship Potemkin ...

Some of us went to a Chinese restaurant in China Town later and we bumped in-
to Dainton beforehand.

My goodness, it's seven years ago, time flies!
