FMUKCON - Saturday, 20 April 2013 - London

#1 Post by prettyxcool » Mon Jan 07, 2013 2:13 pm

Hi everyone

I really do not know where is best to post this invitation!

Diane65 has organised a trip down with the Manchester FMUKers to meet up with the London FMUKers, and I have agreed to organise the London end, however, we thought it would be good to open invite to everyone, whether they be from London/Manchester or not, so if anyone is interested in to just drop by on 20 April to meet other FMUKers, for a bite to eat, a drink (does not have to be alcoholic!), or just to meet and chat, then you are all welcome.

The details are as follows:

Date: Saturday, 20 April 2013
Time: 12noon to 3pm
Venue: Yager Bar
Dress Code: Whatever you fancy!

So I can gauge how many people are interested, and negotiate a deal, please let me know if you would like to attend.

Please leave your name, below, so I can compile a list of all interested to come.

Thanks!

I am all excited already! :cheer:

Edit: Of course, if your plus ones would like to come too, please bring them along! ;)


Location details : Yager Bar

2-3 Old Change Court,
Peters Hill, St. Paul's,
London, EC4M 8EN


I have booked the Courtyard Bar:
http://www.yager-bar.com/courtyard.php
and negotiated a deal - £3.50 for house wines and £3 for bottle of Becks, and two complimentary sharing platters.
Cash bar.
No deposit to p*y.

It is opposite St Paul's Churchyard (nearest tube St Paul's), and round the corner from the Millennium Bridge.

I have added this here in case, anyone is interested:
Diane65 wrote:Itinerary for the tourists so if anyone wants to join us throughout the day you would be more than welcome. You will need an Art Pass http://www.artfund.org/telegraph to get into Kensington Palace and to The Cartoon museum for free but you need to apply asap as it can take up to 10 days to arrive so that everything we will be doing (apart from the tube and meet up (if you're eating) will be free). Plus if anyone is shy it might be less daunting doing a bit of site seeing before rather than meeting 60 new people all at once. So far its me, akh43, steve, Betty Botter, Yogi and OH, Andrews, Jordsmum, The Fox, rawr_xoxo, Jeanelle ans asamaic (she mentioned she was getting an art pass so hopefully she will be joining us :cross: )

9ish everyone arrives in London. The Fox and Andrews arrive at St Pancreas/Kings Cross at 9:09 and 9:15 the rest of us will arrive at Euston at about 9 except for Jordsmum who will be there at the crack of dawn.
Take the Victoria line to Oxford Circus (This is so the Kings Cross girls can take the same tube) and then get the Central Line to Queensway where we can all wait for each other at about 9.45am then stroll through Hyde Park to reach Kensington Palace for 10am opening time.
10- 11am Kensington Palace
11-11.15ish get the Central line to St Paul's and have a look in St Dunstans chapel within St Pauls(its free and thanks to Jeanelle for the heads up as we don't really want to be spending a fortune on entrance fees)
12noon until 3pm meet up with fellow FMUKers and socialise.
Yager Bar
2-3 Old Change Court,
Peters Hill, St. Paul's,
London, EC4M 8EN
3pm take the Central line to Tottenham Court Road to have a mooch around http://www.cartoonmuseum.org/ (free with the art pass - Betty Botter's suggestion) before having a visit to Hummingbird bakery http://hummingbirdbakery.com/our-bakeries/soho/ to collect cakes (possibly eat them there as well) to take home (a very wise suggestion from Andrews) and then go for a spot of retail therapy around Covent Garden before heading back home. I know that a few of you are getting trains just after 6pm so tried to finish the day not too far away from Euston.

I will check before I get there re tube problems etc.
or an alternative one: :D
