London Meet Up - Saturday 25th January 2020

Postby verbal gymnastics » Mon Dec 16, 2019 11:57 am

What better way to get rid of those post-Christmas blues than to come along for a London meet up?

As well as having a chance to show off those one month old Christmas jumpers, we can talk about Elvis.

We had 2 terrific meet ups in 2019 with over a dozen of us coming from over the country each time. New people are coming along all the time to the meet ups who we have seen at the gigs.

It'll be the usual haunt - The Woodlin Shades in Bishopsgate from 2pm.

So far, our confirmations are

Sheeptotheslaughter
sulky lad
Neil.
johnfoyle
goon squad
Mr Getgood

and others.

Don't miss the social event of 2020!

Yes, the NYC crew will host all of you guys when you come to New York.

We were happy to meet John Foyle at the autobiography Q&A show a few years back.

I’ve got some bad news guys, although some will maybe see it as good news! :wink:
I can’t now make the meet up. :(
I was gonna come along after watching the mighty Hammers in their FA Cup match, therefore joining you all for the “evening session”, but I’ve now been summoned to a works event that evening so will have to dash back for that instead.Apologies all round, but hopefully I’ll catch up with everyone in a few weeks time at some of the gigs.
Have fun! 8)

Team Sweden will not appear on this one! I can be seen on a few of the JustTrustUK tour dates though.

Great news Hazya,

I have put the event on the facebook page. Looks like we will have a decent turn out.

Great turn out with folk from the north and the south west and the Republic ( guess who) ! The anticipation for the tour is mounting and we spent ages comparing our seats, travel arrangements and subterfuges as to how to explain our expenditure to partners, spouses and family. Sad Goon Squad squandered his afternoon at the City Of London stadium and Steve and I agreed not to discuss football given the current state of our respective teams. Thanks to him for
sorting out the venue ( again) and for getting Bruce to come along for a quick pint !

Glad you had a good time - sorry I couldn't make it in the end and sorry I missed Bruce, Sulky! :wink:

TBH, Neil, his name might have been Nick and I just misheard it-you know how noisy it gets in The Shades. He definitely wore glasses and knew masses of stuff about Elvis and The Attractions and had a great line in irony anyway :wink:

A great was had by all. I don't care what others say we missed Goon Squad and Neil. :D Off the top of my head i think the women outnumbered the men this time. YAY

Look forward to see a few of you in Hammersmith and if not beforehand VG at the palladium
