Fans meet up

I'm sounding out the possibility of a fans meet up, perhaps Spring 2014 in London. Would anyone be up for such a thing (unless there is a tour, it would have to be postponed)biggrin

I'm game, but suspect most people wouldn't travel unless there was a gig attached if I'm honest....unless you can persuade one of band to do a Q&A night or something?

I wondered this, but there seems to be quite a few people on FB who say they are up for it. I don't want so many that we'd have to hire a venue. If it was a flop it wouldn't matter, a handful of us could have a good evening out.

What are the chances of getting any member of the band along?

If you could persuade Bob and the band to do a gig in Oxford then I'd certainly be up for it! Maybe if the University was handing him an honorary deqree that might help.smile

I would definitely be there, if they come to Oxford. It's about time Oxford Uni gave Bob and honorary degree.

There you go Jules. Try every college's EntsCom to see if they'll stump up for the band at one of the summer balls, or maybe even the 'Torpids' balls around March? 

Be a great place for fans to meet as well; pretty central in the country, well served by road and rail, plenty of sights, plenty of accommodation choices, plus you deserve it being 'local' if you're organising it.

 He visited the Pepys Library in Cambridge after the gig there. He might want to try the Bodleian library in Oxford for a good read!

He'd have a very good read in there. Although now there are so many books, some have been shifted over to Swindon.

Have booked a room in this place: castle-harrow.co.uk. (It is free and holds 20 people) for 1st March. Please let me know if you intend to join us and if it is just you or you would bring other guest(s). No cost.

 

It will be cancelled/postponed if there are any gigs on this date, so don't book anything you can't cancel right now.

Thanks Jules. Will stick this on the calendar (when I get one) although I'm half planning to be in Swansea for football so will decide nearer time if one/other/both is best option.

sadly, i dont think i'm going to be up for this if it means hotel, train, etc.

i've got a week away in wales mid-april, and it just sounds like a lot of expense tbh....

i will check the dates, if any, that will be on the ol book jules...

i wouldnt hesitate if it was in london but i know its tricky to get everyone together due to distances etc.

It is going to be in London. See your invitation on FB . If this is successful, I may do another at a later date in Birmingham for those further north.

Good place for Chinese food Harrow. Big community there. Something to do with arriving at Heathrow and that being first word cabbies hear apparently biggrin.

Do I get barred for stereotyping there? Profuse apologies and retraction if so.....
