As its only two weeks now: Might even see a couple of people that went to The Cock, Hackney in 2001!

If anyone has a more suitable venue for a meetup suggest it, however, I would suggest a pub called 'The Canterbury Arms' which is a two minute walk from the academy. I'll give directions if suitable numbers are interested, if not, then I'll just sit with my pint of 1664 by myself!
Not Weatherspoons though, it's too small, horrible atmosphere and shite basically.

I've even added a profile pic (with the help of Victoria!) to mine.

All other details to be arranged.

I'll come along too and sink a few beers with you zoners. I'm pretty sure i went to the Canterbury prior to Avril Lavigne show a year or so ago and Ian Dury and the Blockheads many, many years before that. Anyone want to meet up in Paris, Rotterdam, Hamburg or Budapest too?

That's cool Martin, we wouldn't arrange to meet much before that anyway.
Otherwise a few of us wouldn't be remembering the concert at all!!

3pm ish sounds fine although as Eggy mentions, I'm not sure if my liver can take too much abuse at my age. Might have a couple of beers followed by some Tea chasers. Have you booked a hotel in Budapest yet Mr Scully?

Mcm - I hope a fellow Queen collector will let me stay in his Budapest flat! :-) I'm more worried about where to stay in Brixton.

eggy - I'm sure I'll pretty well remember the concert... considering the beer prices in England... :-)

Okay, eggy, it's 'The Canterbury Arms' - I must be crazy!! You still owe me 5 pounds, lol.

This time we have to get the Guru to join us, let's start spamming his email.

I have to book my flight. I can't believe I did this.

Ha ha, Barb. That's great news. Glad you couldn't resist it. Even if last night you said it was too expensive.

I'll get proper directions to the pub and post them when I get home.

Martin, Brixton is one of the cheapest areas of London thankfully. A pint will still sent you back between £2.30 and £2.50 though.
In Weatherspoons its less than £2.00 but I ain't stepping foot in there again!

No help on accomodation sorry, have a friend where I stay if I need. But i'd advise somewhere nicer than brixton which is direct from Victoria Line.

Anyone meeting up in Vienna, Munich or Leipzig??.
I'm going to attend those concerts all the way from MEXICO, so it would be nice to meet with someone and not be alone. I don't speak German, by the way... :S

More details on the topic I just started:

Barb, are you coming alone to Brixton?

Here's a map of The Canterbury Arms.

http://www.multimap.com/map/browse.cgi?pc=SW9+7QD

As you can see its rather jolly close to Brixton.
Come out of the tube and up the steps (there is only one exit). Turn RIGHT keep walking for a little while (you'll pass the beehive and the goose pubs) then you'll get to a big crossing and if you look left you'll be able to see Brixton Academy and a pub called the Showcase.
However turn directly RIGHT at the lights (don't bear right as thats the main road) into Canterbury Cresent and if you have good eyes you'll see the pub about 100 yards down the right.

Good pub, good beer, only thing I would say against it is the gents, which are not very nice!

Proposed meeting time of around 3pm.

Might get there a little later myself, I have a party on easter day!
