Well it has been quite a few months since our last meet up in UK, so it's time to start planning another one or two! I will be in UK for a couple of weeks at the end of May/beginning of June.
London - 31st May 2014
Please read all of the post before you apply for a place on the meet up. Places are limited in numbers.
When and Where
We will meet initially at 12 noon at Vapiano in Great Portland Street. This is not far from Oxford Circus underground station.

We have visited this venue before. They have a great ordering system which uses a smart card to record the items you order from the bar or food counter. When you pay the bill you will only be paying for the items you ordered and there's no additional service charge. Because of the flexibility on their ordering and payment system, you will be able to easily pay with cash or card. If you are slightly late it won't be quite so critical.
You can read all about the restaurant on their website here
During the meal there will be plenty of time for chatting and sharing Filofax organisers...
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 and mark your email May 2014 London Meetup but not before 8am (UK time) Monday 31 March 2014. Please only request a place if you are 99% certain that you will be able to attend on the 31st I'm hoping this time to have full attendance.
Once all places are assigned additional names will be added to a reserve list, in case anyone has to drop out of the meet up.
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.
Should you be unsuccessful in booking a place on this particular meet up in May there will be another meet up in late September 2014 the dates are as yet to be confirmed.
If you aren't familiar with London or how to get to Vapiano 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.
Thank you... any questions?
