Philofaxy Meet Up - London - 16 May 2015

As if this year wasn't busy enough for me already.... We are coming over to UK for a quick stay and I'm managed to jungle dates around to get a visit to London....

London - Saturday 16th May 2015

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.

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 2015 London Meetup', but please do not send it before 8am (UK time) Saturday 14th March 2015. Please only request a place if you are 99% certain that you will be able to attend on the 16th.

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 2015 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. Steve - just a quick heads-up. Unless I've misunderstood things, the title of the post suggests the meet-up is on the 16th and in the body of the text it mentions the 9th.

    Best Wishes,

  2. Hi David
    Thanks for spotting that one that slipped through. Definitely the 16th. I will still be in France on the 9th!

  3. Would love to be there, but I don't think that I can get a weekend pass 3 weeks after my weekend pass for the Van Der Spek visit :-) I went to Vapiano at Hackerbrucke in Munich on Wednesday for lunch on my way home, made me feel a bit nostalgic :-)
