    I can't make this anymore unfortunately, I've tried to give as much notice as possible but I appreciate it's still pretty close.

    On the flip side there's now at least 1 (should be 2 after my mate declines also) spaces for other ponies to grab if they were waiting :)

    Hope you guys have an ace time and take lots of photos so those who can't make it can still have a bit of a laugh :D

    For anyone heading in from the east on the day, you're still very welcome to join me in Stratford for

    THE EXTRA PRE-MEET BEFORE THE PRE-MEET THAT'S BEFORE THE PARTY!

    It's just an hour workshop, giving you a taster in cartoon drawing. Definitely worth a go.

    Had my only other expected attendee so far pull out due to late check-in time at his sucky accomodation. Please don't make me go to this on my own! Otherwise i'll just end up grouchy and moaning the rest of the weekend about fandom elitists trampling over my efforts to plan fringe events!

    Okay doke. Pre meet update. We are still looking for a meeting point for around midday however I shall hopefully hear back from some more people today.

    For the episode screening we have booked the horse and stables at Waterloo between 3pm and 4pm. HOWEVER this is just the upstairs area. No lot the main bar. So when you arrive go to the back of the pub and up the stairs. I'll write a full post on this when I get home tonight.

    Could be early days yet but mind yourself over the weekend, some pilchard has poured concrete into the Victoria Line signal room at Victoria, so there's a possibility of issues there if you were planning to use it.

    It shouldn't be too much of an issue for me, since I'll be using the Circle Line out of Paddington, though thanks for the heads up.

    Only coffee shop I could think of that might be suitable would be Victoria Starbucks,
    If you're coming from down south, your train should stop at Clapham Junction and you could change there for frequent trains to Waterloo in a couple of minutes, and depending on what ticket you get it should be valid for this, however if you don't have a travelcard or other means of paying for the underground then you will need to pay to get from waterloo to kings cross on the underground.
    I really hope they fix this by tomorrow or it's bakerloo line for me ;.;
    Doesn't really seem like it'll be a 5 minute job to scoop hardened concrete out of a signal room though
    To Victoria, it's slightly quicker to get the Bakerloo line and change at Oxford Circus to the Victoria, a nice easy cross platform change. Trains are more frequent too (although if they can't scoop the concrete out by then, it's pretty well screwed)

    Note it is amongst the super-duper-important-this-controls-the-victoria-line wiring mess
    I doubt 30 minutes is all they would've needed

    nothing has come up on the underground site coming from Victoria so i think it is fine and as they will be working very hard to get this sorted out as victoria is a main station and they need it operational ASAP
