Philofaxy Meet Up - London - 14 August 2021

We are planning a visit to London in August 2021, it has taken us quite a bit of organising to sort out accommodation for the quarantine period, which we will be doing in Kent. Then we will move up to London for the remainder of our stay for grand parent duties!

This event is open to everyone, there are no qualifying requirements... if you enjoy good company and you like organisers and planners of any brand then you will be very welcome and you will be amongst friends.

London - Saturday 14 August 2021

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 will be observing what ever COVID restrictions are still in place in London in August to the letter... We don't want anyone catching this virus. 

We have visited this venue many times before.  With the COVID restrictions they have changed their ordering system slightly: 

"All orders are taken by scanning a QR code at your table, and we bring all food and drink to you – no more queuing for the chef."

Don't panic if you don't have a smartphone.... we will make sure you don't starve or die of thirst!

You can read all about the restaurant on their website here

During the meal there will be plenty of time for chatting and sharing organisers...

Our meet up will finish at about 6:30pm but you don't have to stay to the end. 

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 'August 2021 London Meetup', you can book a place straight away.

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.

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?
