Philofaxy Meet Up - London 27/28 September 2013

So this is a 'calling notice' for people who would like to attend the 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

London - 28th September 2013

The following day 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 September 2013 London Meetup but not before 8am (UK time) Monday 8 July 2013. Please only request a place if you are 99% certain that you will be able to attend on the 28th  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 September there will be another meet up in late October/early November 2013 the dates are as yet to be confirmed.

Additional Information

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?


  1. This last meet up was fantastic. If you can get there it's not to be missed. Also Vapiano is does great tasty food.

  2. I am going to be at the London meet-up later this month but would really like to come to the September one too. Unfortunately my work schedule will make that impossible. Though if there places become available closer to the time I may. Will you keep us posted closer to the time, Steve?

    1. Yes I will advertise free places if there are any closer to the date.

  3. This makes me want to plan a London vacation around this meetup!

  4. I have a question...

    Anyone want to pay for a plane ticket from DC to London? ;-)

    This sounds so fun! For those able to go, enjoy it!! I do expect a full write up on the event(s) afterwards!

    1. Yes as always I will be doing a write up about the event with a selection of pictures with lots of organisers and people chatting not aware I'm photo sniping them!

  5. Think I might be able to make this. Should I bring my gillios as well as my Filofaxes lol

  6. A little tip so you don't forget about the timing of sending the email...

    Write the email today, but schedule it to be sent on Monday at the right time...

    1. Ok Steve, how do I schedule an email to be sent??
