So this is a 'calling notice' for people who would like to attend the next Philofaxy Meet Up in London. Please read all of the post before you apply for a place on the meet up. Places are limited in numbers.
When and Where
The date of the meet up is Saturday 26th May 2012 and we will meet initially at 12 noon at Tate Modern which is at Bankside on the South Bank of the Thames.
We will be eating at Cafe 2 which is at the western end of the building:

The menu for Cafe2 is quite varied and in the past we have found it quite reasonably priced. It is easier for us if you bring cash for the meal, generally we just split the bill by the number of people eating.
During the meal there will be plenty of time for chatting and sharing Filofax organisers...
Then we will take a walk across the river to City Organiser who have kindly agreed to open their shop for us on the Saturday afternoon... in fact Andy will be joining us for lunch at Tate Modern.
Our meet up will finish at about 5:30pm
How to book a place on the meet up
To get a place on the meet up you need to email: steve[at]philofaxy[dot]com but not before 9am (UK time) tomorrow Friday 16th March 2012. Please only request a place if you are 99% certain that you will be able to attend on the 26th I'm hoping this time to have full attendance.
Once all ten places are assigned additional names will be added to a reserve list, in case anyone has to drop out of the meet up between the 16th and 26th May.
As places are allocated you will receive an email back again confirming your place on the meet up.
Please do not book travel tickets etc until you have a confirmed place. I will attempt to confirm places within 2-3 hours of receiving your email.
If you aren't familiar with London or how to get to Tate Modern from the station you are arriving at then use the Transport for London Journey Planner, it's generally quite good.
Once we have our full list of people, we will exchange email addresses and if you aren't familiar with London you might be able to get someone to meet you at the station you are arriving at.
Your safety on the day and your enjoyment on the day is of paramount importance to me, so don't be afraid to ask any questions by email, I want everyone who attends to get the most from the day.
I'm going to be staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Southwark Street, just behind Tate Modern. If you are going to be staying over night in London either on the Friday night or Saturday night then I'm sure we can meet up for dinner or a drink somewhere.
Thank you... any questions?
[Update] All places have now been allocated for this meet up. But if you would like to be added to the reserve list, please email me and I will add you to the list.
In your email please include your mobile number and how close to the meeting date and time we can call you to say someone has dropped out and would you like to come instead of them.
For instance if you live in London and some one drops out that morning I would look down the list for someone who could get there in the remaining time and call them first. I hope that makes sense and is fair to everyone.
Thank you for all the prompt emails this morning.
