Maybe, depending on dates and times... i'd be 50/50 for a saturday lunch and that's probably as good as odds get tbf

EDIT - Oh, East? The one near Stratford? I'm on the high speed line, count me in, most dates and times would work for me :D (y)

Great.
Maybe we can arrange some comps?
Asteroids
Track and field
Street fighter

Plus they have consoles setup in booths..

Shall we say the 20th of April to get the ball rolling and shift it if it doesn't work for the majority?

I can probably make Friday after work, not sure how long for owing to useless trains back, however without wishing to rain down on democracy have I misread the poll results or something?

Friday 21st of April     3     [21.43%]
Saturday 22nd of April     9     [64.29%]
None of the above. Reschedule!     2     [14.29%]

Understandable perhaps, well I thought it was this

hence my confusion unless someone has recently logged in and cast many votes :-)

That was the poll but it does seem 21st it is.

I could do both but the Friday is also best for me as I have the kids Saturday.

How far is it from Victoria, as might come across after work on the Friday. How early does it start, as I might be able to take my lunch at the end of the day to maximise time.

About 40 minutes I would have thought... you're probably looking at half hour on either district or circle.

Not sure but would have thought 6/7 onwards.

We might all be falling over if we get there too early!!!!!

I would say get there when it suits you.

I know I am aiming for 5-6.

I'll get there as early as poss, as can't stay too late, takes me 2 hours commuting back to Sunny Seaford and there are not so many trains.

A week after Easter and a week before payday... that nixes it for me sadly :(

Date Posted: 19 Apr 2017 at 3:15pm
Looking like a doubt for me too sadly.

(much for the same reasons as Kdoe below), it would take me nearly 3 hours to get home with tube/trains etc, which means leaving pretty much as I arrive.

unfortunately I think I am going to have to bow out of this one, to an extent becuase I originally misread the post and thought you were meeting in Peckham -well technically it is in east London...

But in essence I'm working Friday & I don't think I'll be able to leave that early, no problem you'd think just stay out later Clap but due to the appaling state of public transport in this country.... according to national snail and/or underground I'll be lucky to get there before 20:00 and I'll have to be back on the platform waiting for a train by 22:18 Shocked 

Sigh, I'll see if any sleep on park bench options spring to mind in the meantime.

I can't make it either now.
