I think early November could be a good time.
That way we won't have to get caught up in the premiere crowds.
And hopefully not too wintery yet.

I know there will be some interest for the idea on BetterMost too.

Personally, I think we'd be better off if each person picked a weekend on which s/he could definitely make it to London to see the exhibition next fall and posted that date on a special thread, because as we know, not everyone can manage to be free at the same time. If some or all of the people picking the same weekend want to stay in the same place, they can work it out among themselves. There are a fair number of us who live in London, or within commuting distance, or have friends/relatives there, for whom accommodations aren't a factor. The people who live close in or close to London can come in for more than one weekend to see different groups of folks.

Another thing, that exhibition will be extremely popular and I'm sure it will be necessary to book tickets ahead so that's another consideration.

A screening of the film isn't a priority for me, to be honest.

That makes sense Kim, and as for a screening, I was only kidding. This would be a gathering of a different sort and as you say, it's something that folks could fit into at various times between Oct and Jan, though I suspect many of us would like to be there at the same time. Getting that sorted could become a nightmare so leaving folks to decide according to preferences posted on a separate thread sounds the best way to go from here.

I am a little worried about the choice of Croydon as a place to stay. My daughter and son in law lived in a very nice part of town, which was still only a few hundred metres from where the big furniture store was burned to the ground during the recent riots. Luckily they had moved out about 10 days before.
I liked their area, and I like Croydon, but it is a very mixed place with a very high crime rate. Parts of it are very wealthy, and parts are very poor, and I am told that a Saturday evening in Croydon is like the Battle of the Somme.
I have had some good evenings in Croydon, but you do need to know exactly where you are going, and it is easy to wander into a part where shootings and knifings take place.
It is very mulitracial, which I like, has an excellent shopping centre, and a good tram system, but one would need to be very careful in the choice of accommodation.

Well,Jess, once we've got a thread up and running, maybe we can collate suggestions? There must be a million places that would suit.

The idea has already gotten some interest over on BetterMost, and I'm posting a link there to this thread meanwhile.

I agree, the best thing to do now would be to start a new thread about it.

Someone could start a thread in the "Start Your Own Threads" section.  If it needs to be moved at a later date to the "gatherings" section, a mod can do that for you.

Does anybody live in Manchester? I'm thinking of moving there in a couple of years and it would be great if there was a Brokie there to show me around Smiley
