    First of all, I'd just like to say a massive thanks to everyone who attended today's meet in Nottingham. I hope everyone had tonnes of fun! It certainly is a rarity to have so many people meet up in Trottingham, but nonetheless we did well.

    Overall there were nearing 2 dozen Bronies in our group. We actually took up two rows at the Cinema. Apart from us, the cinema had a few other bronies and a couple of little children.

    For me, the meet started in the Old Market Square in Nottingham where I ran into Blaze who was waiting at the lions, later meeting up with Starlight Flux and another friend of his who I don't think is on the forum.
    From here, we went to Forbidden Planet to look for merch (I got a Big Mac Micro Series comic! :D) and then the Sugacane import sweet shop to get some snacks to eat during the film.

    We watched the film (Which was brilliant) and then went to Frankie and Benny's for a meal and a drink.

    How was the meet for the rest of you? Enjoy yourself? Favourite parts?

    What a great meet this was! Was nice to meet lots of new faces and to buy a bit more pony merch at Forbidden Planet. The film was much better on the big screen and thankfully, there was no singing xD

    Hope to see all you guys again some time soon! :D

    This was the first meet I've ever been to and I had so much fun. Still can't believe the cinema had a PS3 hooked up to the projector.

    It was funny watching what we dubbed 'closet' bronies wander in to watch the film! And of course the little girl who was dressed up as Rainbow dash, she won the costume award that didn't exist until then! hehe.

    Fantastic meet, I loved every minute of it and I'm so glad I was able to attend.
    Definitely the funniest thing for me was the looks on the faces of the 3 or 4 mums who brought their daughters to the film. Priceless!

    Hope to see you all again soon!

    Oh and can't forget learning that Starlight Flux lives in Cotgrave! (Same village as me! Score!)

    That just made my day alone, learning that there's another Brony in my village.
    Everything else just piled on the awesomeness.
    This was one of the best meets I've ever attended and the best day I've had for years!

    I agree. This was definitely the best meetup I have attended in a long time, and I'm not just saying that because I helped arrange it. Most meetups I have been to in the past just involve hanging around town and then going to the pub when we get bored. This meetup had time for shopping for those who wanted it, followed by the mane event (the cinema), and then time to socialise (the meal).

    By the way, when I get back from BUCK I'm going to set up the Trottingham group on Google plus. However, if these is another social media platform people think it will be better (Facebook, Rainbow Dash Network, or any thing else) please let me know.

    There is actually a Trottinghamshire Brony group on Facebook. If you add me on facebook I can invite you to the group.

    I'm already part of that group, but I find that they don't post that many meetups. Thinking about it, as most people are more likely to have a Facebook account, I'll just post any meetups on there (as well as on the UkEq Forum).

    Typically, I have only just found this thread.

    What can I say? I did enjoy the film, and very much appreciate the welcome you gave to the oldest brony in Equestria. Thank-you everypony, and hopefully see some of you in Manchester.
