Although I am no great collector, I am up for meeting fellow fans, so would pop by. :)
I went fishing with Salvador Dali; he used a dotted line.

Definitely some dancing! I'll have a DJ spinning some PSB tunes and although it's too early to say yet, hopefully some special guests.

I was thinking not strictly central London, but it's not set in stone. More likely South London, somewhere people can park their cars if travelling that way.
For the Transformers conventions I have run in the past, people have prefered this.

Any other comments/suggestions welcome...

There is a forum (http://conventionalpsb.proboards92.com/index.cgi?). It hasn't seen much activity lately, but wotrht bookmarking, I will be producing a website a little nearer the time. The show would probably be around July/August 2009, but that's just an idea. After Christmas there will be some announcements.

If it was up the road from where I am, I might consider visiting but no promises

nearer Surrey then? :D thinking of the map of Britain, wouldn't a greater proportion be coming from north of London, and I were coming by car I wouldn't relish the thought of driving all the way through London one bit

Also, south london is less easy to get to for people travelling from the midlands or the north... (obviously lol). At least north London would mean a little less distance to travel for people who are already travelling quite a distance. :)

Something active, something involving fans. Like a dance maybe. Someone or two can be the choreographer and teach the others a dance.. we'd have fun. It's just an idea. (I love dancing myself).

And maybe a dresscode would be fun? You can choose to dress as Neil or Chris or Sylvia? lol Or maybe something more simple, like glamorous or, if we know what the new album's going to look like, we dress in the style of the new album (if that's possible).
I love passion.

And be sure to take lots and lots of pictures and video, and share it with the rest of us so that we can :lol: ...er, I mean, live vicariously through you.

:wink:
And everything about tonight feels right and so young
And anything I'd want to say out loud will be sung
It's in the music...

And let's make both these things optional :P

If I'm going getting on a plane and travelling over to London then getting down to the venue, I want to have as little luggage as possible and certainly don't want to be dressed up as Sylvia!!! :sick:
