Come one, come all, and celebrate SERIES THREE!


Hello all!

For the last three years Sherlockians/Holmesians have come together to celebrate the weekend that Holmes and Watson met. morelindo has been at the helm of the last two, however (after providing a helping hand last year) this year the baton has been passed on to me.

Can all who would like to come please fill out this form, confirming me know which bits you're going to be coming it. If any of you need to contact me, email louiseamelia.tolton@gmail.com or message me on here!

The current plan (Not 100% confirmed yet, subject to change over the next 3 days, so best to wait until then to confirm):

25th Jan

11am: A Sherlock Holmes Walk with the lovely Richard IV. Can't say yet where to meet as we're having a personalised tour just for us! It will cost around £7.
1pm: Pub Lunch
Afternoon There are two exhibitions on at the Science Museum which seem very appropriate for Sherlock. One is free, all about the brain and called Mind Maps: Stories from Psychology. The other must be booked (so you'll need to confirm if you want me to book it for you) is called Only in England, contains photos showing the eccentricities of England, and costs £8 or £5 for students/concessions. You can do one, the other, both or none at all of the exhibitions. Those who don't fancy the Science museum can make their own plans, perhaps visiting Baker Street or Speedy's, and meet us later.
7pm: Dinner at Nando's (Likely either Gloucester Road or High Street Kensington) to avoid the usual 'Paying The Bill Fiasco'.

26th Jan

12 noon Pub lunch and an afternoon spent chatting, quizzing, enthusing over Series 3 and drinking if you fancy.

I'll be setting up a paypal when all is confirmed to collect the various monies.  Also, people are often willing to offer up places to stay overnight, if you're stuck for somewhere check in the comments!

Look forward to seeing you all then!


25th Jan

1. The WALK leaves at 11am from GREEN PARK TUBE STATION, finishing c.1pm near Charring Cross/Embankment Tube stations. There is a catch-up point for latecomers at the top of St. James' Street but I'll be contactable by email and twitter (@justlikeluna) throughout. Ideally paypal me with your signup name in notes (at LOUISEAMELIA.TOLTON@GOOGLEMAIL.COM) your £7 if you are going to be coming. If you don't do this, PLEASE HAVE EXACT CHANGE.

2. LUNCH is at 1:30pm at the SILVER CROSS pub (SW1A 2BX)

3. Those who have expressed/will express the wish to do the ONLY IN ENGLAND exhibition must paypal their £8 (or £5 with a note saying you're a concession) to me at LOUISEAMELIA.TOLTON@GOOGLEMAIL.COM, with a note of your name. Otherwise I WILL NOT BOOK YOUR TICKET WITHOUT THE MONEY. Our booking will be from 4pm, though we can do other things before/after then at the Science Museum if there's time.

4. DINNER will be from 7pm at NANDO'S GLOUCESTER ROAD (SW7 4ST). If we're not all there by 7:15, they will give our table away. So PLEASE BE PROMPT!

26th Jan

We have the whole afternoon FROM 12 NOON booked at THE OLD EXPLORER pub (W1G 0JA)

I'll confirm either way on Monday, but no matter what happens, if anyone is running late or anything like that (so needs to contact me) I'll be checking my email throughout the day, and if anyone wants my mobile number in case, just drop me a message!

Dec. 28th, 2013 08:20 pm (UTC)

I need to double check my dates but I think I can do Sat. I'm interested in the Only in England exhibition, but won't be able to confirm till after New year's (away on holiday at the moment & don't have access to my calendar). Is that ok?
Dec. 29th, 2013 05:31 pm (UTC)
Yep, that's fine!
Dec. 31st, 2013 10:45 am (UTC)
Awwyiss will def be there but will confirm in a day or two with the form.

Thanks for organizing this!
Jan. 6th, 2014 06:27 pm (UTC)
Not a problem! Look forward to seeing you there.
Jan. 3rd, 2014 06:53 pm (UTC)
Anyone up for letting me sleep on their sofa? I promise I'm nice, and provide glib conversation.
Jan. 4th, 2014 04:39 pm (UTC)
I've signed up :)

Let me know if you need a hand with anything.
Jan. 6th, 2014 06:26 pm (UTC)
I think all is in hand for the moment, though on the day you can be of much help with shepherding once we finish the walk!
Jan. 6th, 2014 06:00 pm (UTC)
Can I still sign up? XD I'll join you from lunch (might be during or after) on Saturday. I'll only do the Mind Map exhibition, so no need to book an extra ticket ;)
Jan. 6th, 2014 06:26 pm (UTC)
Course you can! Only in England tickets haven't actually been booked yet, so if you did want to go you can still paypal me the monies. But it's fine if you don't, so long as I know either way!

Will almost certainly be there on Sunday 26th. Can't wait to meet some Sherlock fans in person.
Jan. 16th, 2014 11:43 pm (UTC)
And we can't wait to meet you too! (P.s. make sure you fill out the form if you haven't already :) )
Jan. 16th, 2014 11:45 am (UTC)
Hey, filled in the form and definitely coming Saturday, trying to find cheap hotel/hostel so maybe I can do Sunday. Will be really nice to meet some Sherlock fans in person.
Jan. 16th, 2014 11:44 pm (UTC)
Great! Look forward to meeting you :D
Jan. 16th, 2014 02:07 pm (UTC)
Hi, I don't really know anyone so I'm a bit nervous, but I've filled in my form too and I can definitely come both days.
Jan. 16th, 2014 11:45 pm (UTC)
Don't worry, you don't need to be nervous! I was so daunted when I went to my 1st meetup, about a year and a half ago now but I had no reason to be. Everyone is lovely and welcoming and inclusive, even people who've known each other for a while. We're all there to be enthusiastic together.

I look forward to meeting you!
Jan. 18th, 2014 07:03 pm (UTC)
Hi, found about this post on tumblr...I haven't used livejournal in ages, and I don't know anyone who's coming to the meetup,but I'm huge Sherlock fan and I'd love to meet you all. I can definitely do Saturday,all the bits apart from dinner.Looking forward to meeting you on Sat!Laura
Jan. 19th, 2014 02:49 pm (UTC)
Hi there.

Just want to check: does 'all the bits' include the Only In England exhibit? I'm assuming not (from your doodlepoll sign up responses) but if so, I'm going to need you to paypal the money over, or buy your own ticket.

Look forward to meeting you!
Jan. 19th, 2014 05:18 pm (UTC)
I'm not coming to the exhibition, but I can do the free one. I will have to leave at around 4 or 5, because I'm working in the evening. I'm also paying in cash the £7 for the walk,haven't got a paypal account..
See you soon!
Jan. 24th, 2014 12:04 am (UTC)
All sounds great! Look forward to seeing you there!
