The Pre-Concert Fan Meet

Tuesday, 14 June 2011 13:22

Current thinking seems to indicate the BFI area on the South Bank in the
afternoon, or late afternoon.
The restaurant is literally on the bank of the South Bank, almost
underneath Waterloo Bridge.
You walk across the footbridge from Embankment tube to the South Bank,
turn left down the steps and walk along the bank, past the Royal
Festival Hall, until you almost get to the National. You cannot miss it.

The BFI is outdoors and in. Weather forecast at the time of writing is
not good:

The Riverfront, the BFI restaurant on the South Bank is a good place for
eating in the afternoon. It has both indoor and outdoor facilities and
it's not too far away from South Kensington tube station...

... which itself is 15 minutes walk from the RAH or...

... The Gore Hotel, which could equally be the final pre-concert drinks
meeting venue!

So: 1pm-4.30pm (approx) at the BFI and 5pm onwards at the Gore Hotel, next to the RAH, by the way.

We do not know if we all fit in anywhere, so don't pin us down on anything. But these are two places we know about where fans try to meet. And many have never met before. Proprietors won't know what's going to hit them!

Contact Geoff if you have any questions.
