(This is a cross-post with Rullsenberg Rules.)
It’s time, don’t you think? Since Nottingham is so centrally located – 1:40 by train from London, 1:16 from Birmingham, 2:25 from Manchester – and since we’ve never yet hosted a public blogmeet, and since Lisa Rullsenberg and I have been infected with a sudden dose of The Keens…
…and since, as we all know, the Best Fun is Organised Fun…
…well then, here goes.
The date: Saturday March 10th 2007.
The time: From around 2pm until mid-evening. Come when you like, leave when you like, stay for as long or as little as you like.
The venue: The ground floor café/bar of Broadway Cinema on Broad Street, in central Nottingham. 10 minutes by foot from the train station, or a short tram or taxi ride.
Licensed bar, hot and cold food available throughout the day, open plan, large tables, pleasant buzz, appropriate arts/media milieu. Because we do like a good milieu. No smoking, but it’s only a quick hop outside for a crafty chuff.
The vibe: Friendly, welcoming and resolutely non-cliquey. Hell, Lisa and I have never even met; how could we be cliquey?
The door policy: All are welcome – from the Nottingham area, or from any other part of the UK. Or, indeed, The World.
Hope you can make it. See you there. I’ll be the one in the nice smart shirt, trying to (*cough*) maintain level eye contact.
