Green Man seems like a good option. Only 5 minutes from the venue (according to its own web site).
Our tickets show concert starts at 7.30 pm, so we plan to be at the Green Man around 5.00pm for a light refreshment, before walking over.
(At least Saturday & probably Sunday too!)
Hope a few people can make it.

Regards,

Scott & Helen

Green Man is fine with me, I don't know the area that well. It'll be me and Mr somewhat_nifty, plus burningviolin there on the Saturday night. See you soon!

I can't be there Saturday, but Green Man 17:00 sounds like a good plan for Sunday. Is anyone local enough to know if its worth trying to book a few tables?
Best,

Well Bruno, we'll be back in the UK soon and we will go along with a meet there (nice and close) but can someone else do the meet up arrangements please.If you like, I don't mind calling the Green Man to see about table(s)if need be, once some kind of numbers are finalised if no one else can?
I guess it all started for me sometime around Christmas 1967 and now, goodness me, it's.........2017 and fifty years later.
No one ever listens to me. I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record.

We took a drive over to the Green Man at Wembley today. I spoke to the manager about possibly reserving a few tables for a pre-meet on Saturday & Sunday. Although very helpful, initially he wasn't too keen on allocating a specific area, as, particularly on Saturday the pub will probably be busy anyway.
However he agreed, that if I could give him an approximate idea of numbers he would arrange something. It would probably be in the conservatory area of the bar. The pub itself is quite open plan so there should be no problem finding each other. I would like to let him know numbers by Thursday. If you are intending to join us in the Green Man, please post below with details of which day you are coming.
We will be there 4.30/5.00 pm and intend to leave for the concert around 6.30 (just a 5 minute down hill walk!)

For those of you who have posted, showing interest in a meet-up, in the last few days, there is no need to re-post as I have already included you in the numbers (unless you are bringing anyone else).

We look forward to seeing you there.

Regards,

Scott & Helen
