Ok folks - in keeping with true fibsgathering tradition, we have included, for your delight, a last minute change of venue
The saturday event will take place in New Cross - at a club called Goldsmiths Tavern. We get the whole restaurant to ourselves, an ideal space with tables, sofas - all day food and bar staff just for us
I think this will work out nicely - and after, they have djs downstairs - so we can go and act lively, to offset all the sitting about, eating and drinking we will have been doing
It is very easy to get to from everywhere - two major train stations - New Cross and New Cross gate are either side of the venue - about 5 mins walk. There are buses/nightbuses to and from everywhere (in London) - so those who wish to stay beyond train times - can still get home without breaking the bank. Also - being New Cross - the actual cost of the eating and drinking will be better - the food menu looked very good too.
If you come in on the New Cross line - come out of the station on to the main road and turn right - walk along for about 5 mins - and you will reach a huge black monstrosity of a building 'The Venue' (ahhhhhh I spent many a happy night there in my youth
, I am still on first name terms with most of the staff! ) Goldsmiths Tavern is directly across the road (the main road - do not confuse it with the New Cross Inn, on the other corner). If you come in on New Cross Gate line - come onto main road and turn left - walk 5 mins(maybe a little further) - and you will run into the same black unmissable building.
On entering the tavern - the restaurant is upstairs - just ask the bar staff - they will guide you.
Looking forwrd to seeing you all
