Suspect that there can't be that many people reading who are both unaware and interested but, just in case, next Holborn/Shakespeare Head fan pub meet is this Saturday from noon onwards...

See, now that's what I'm talking about! I am one of those few... yeah, I will come along. Is that the Shakespeare's Head just off Oxford Circus?

Excellent. Shakespeare Head's in Holborn. Come out of the station, turn left (you'll go past a betting shop, amongst other things) and it's on the end of the block: big Wetherspoon's pub. We'll typically be in one of the big booths on the left near the door.

Whats the meet for ?
20th-Mar-2007 10:37 am (UTC)
Ah right, yes, fan meet, mostly hardcore con goer types, chiefly Starfury attendees, Sean Harry is a regular. Will edit main post to include more details. I'd forgotten about additions to flist post-Redemption!

Indeed, I am/was one of those who are interested but didn't know about it ... not sure I can make it this weekend though (too much Contemplation work to do) but knowing it's there gives me options!
20th-Mar-2007 11:12 am (UTC)
Well, hope you can make it. FWIW, they're more or less monthly at roughly the same point during the month.

LOL ...

Well if gaspodia and I come its our Wedding Anniversary (5th so um its Wood I think) .. So we will have to be nice to her ...

It would be interesting to come along to see if theres any of my old Wolf/StarF con crowd still around (from the days of the Klingon Strike Force and Something Else) as I've not been a SF regular since 2001 when my con attendance dropped dramatically ... I just got disenchanted with the whole money making con style (ie autograph/photocentric single strand cons), Not really Sean's fault but its just not my thing anymore - I was always a guest talk and panel type of person - which I why I big up redemption as its one of the few Media cons that has kept its Fandom style roots (there are a few others).

Prod podia .. I'm sure I can get her to come .. Midday you say ?
20th-Mar-2007 11:57 am (UTC)
You'd come on your wedding anniversary? Wow. I'm impressed...

I know what you mean about cons. TBH, I had noticed this but it hadn't worried me too much until BSG came along and then suddenly there was so much I wanted to discuss once more. I think that's why Redemption was such a wonderful experience for me!

And yeah, first people start arriving from about noon but people drift in and out during the course of the day (including side trips to FP etc!).

Uh... assume you meant to reply to Mr O'Shea's comment rather than mine?
20th-Mar-2007 11:14 am (UTC)
Ahh ok ...

We used to use the SH for B&B7 meets - the big round tables - but it just got too noisy in there on a friday night (not to mention the fact the LSE discovered it, which made it really hard to get the tables) ...
20th-Mar-2007 11:24 am (UTC)
Securing booths can be tricky on a Saturday too but enough loud discussion of slash fiction seems to do the trick quite nicely!
20th-Mar-2007 02:00 pm (UTC)
Dang, that makes two months in a row Mandy & me will miss it.
20th-Mar-2007 02:21 pm (UTC)
So what exotic location are you gadding off to this time?
21st-Mar-2007 02:22 pm (UTC)
The wilds of Norfolk, to see my folks.

Tell Jo for next month to make it any day except the 21st!!
20th-Mar-2007 06:16 pm (UTC)
*raises hand*

I might be interested, depending on how other stuff goes (I need to be in Harrow for six-ish, so I might be able to combine the two).

What time do you generally stick around until?
20th-Mar-2007 06:29 pm (UTC)
Huh. So much for my assumptions!

Normally, there'll be people sticking it out till chucking out time. This month, I believe some people are heading off to a party in the evening but I currently plan to be there to the bitter end!

If in doubt, I guess you can text me on 07976836271 to check if anyone's still about!
20th-Mar-2007 10:26 pm (UTC)
Cool. What I might do is drive up to Harrow and see about getting a train from there into town -- I'll phone the people holding the party tomorrow and find how practical that's going to be.

Am in London right now BTW, and trying to decide what to do with myself for the next two evenings if neither of the usual suspects get back to m in time.
21st-Mar-2007 12:26 am (UTC)
Hmm... well, if you're feeling terminally bored, I'm meeting a ECW re-enactment/airsofting friend (possibly two, depending on how work goes) who's down in London for a training course tomorrow (Wednesday) evening at De Hems, a Dutch pub off Shaftesbury Avenue, for drinks and food.
21st-Mar-2007 06:17 am (UTC)
Sounds lik a potential plan. I'll see how things pan out with the drinks recption they've got schedule for us in the early evening and text/phone you if I'm likely to show up.
