COF London meet up

"We wanted to have a COF Peeps meetup while we were there in London, and in order not to compete with the Cureconnections meetup we talked it over a bit in email and decided to have the gathering on Weds. Feb. 25th starting at 2 pm at the Beehive Pub in Brixton, right near the Brixton Academy where the awards ceremony for the Godlike Genius award is being held."
(Thanks Heron)

  7. Yay! Thanks for posting the announcement, Craig!

    I have a favor to ask, if you would? Could you please put a link to this thread in the side bar so it won't get buried in the posts? Like you did for the NYC meetup?

    Any peeps who are planning on meeting us there, PLEASE give an RSVP here so I'll have a "head count" estimate for the pub as we get closer to the day.

    See you all VERY SOON!!!

  9. Oh and Woof, since you're a local, how's the Beehive for a meet like this? We looked at pubs closest to the venue and the tube, so this one seemed to fit the bill. Any local expertise or recommendations would be welcome!

  16. Hooligal, AFAIK the tickets to the ceremony are not available to the public.

    Help, so you have tickets to the awards ceremony? May I ask how you got them?

    ReplyDelete
  17. They put 100 tickets on sale to the public at noon today. Standing ones too! Only gonna be a half hour set, but the tickets were only £10.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Help, that's AWESOME!! I'm glad you got tix, but very envious too LOL!!

    So Hooligal, please ignore my uninformed comment about tix not being available to the public ;p

    ReplyDelete
  19. So you guys all get to see them two nights in a row. That is soooo flipping awesome! Have soooo much fun! I will just have to wait until April. Hopefully Robert does something for his Birthday in L.A.

  20. Hello Heron and all,

    I can't do the 25th but will be at the O2 on 26th. Has anyone done their homework on the place yet? It would be good to meet up on the way in and form a COF crowd down at the front near the stage!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Robert - we are defintely intending to get to O2 early to ensure we are at the front.

    Rev - I have been searching for tickets to the Awards night - but I a a big FAIL at this point :(

  23. altr2elise,

    Nearer the time we will need to make some COF arrangements - all wear something distinctive perhaps - black maybe (hahaha!) Seriously, want to meet up with you all in person if possible. How early do you call early?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Robert,
    I am not sure of the plans yet. I'd suspect we will wait until we are all in the same country to start making decisions. Drop me an email (the address is on my profile), and I will make sure we keep you informed.

  28. HEY YOU!!
    I'LL BE THERE IN LONDON...
    BUT...WE COULD JOIN WITH THECURE.COM FANS TOO!

    WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT???

    ReplyDelete
  29. I got a ticket to the awards ceremony, yayy! So I will come and have a drink with you guys :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. For the head count again. I have a ticket for the ceremony :o)))
    so I am not sure if there will be enough time to have a drink with you.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Several of us have since managed to get ticket to the awards ceremony as well--so the pub thing may be a little up in the air at this point! Maybe afterwards??

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am sure that there will be enough peeps who either don't have tickets, or would rather socialize with other peeps to keep the plans the same. Either way, a lot will depend on the award show schedule. I don't know if filming will take place in real time or not, London peeps, any insight on this? Anyone ever been to one of these before?

    ReplyDelete
  33. I meant to add, if enough people have tickets to the ceremony, we can also start the meet earlier in the day, or conversely, have our own afterparty.

  36. URGENT - TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE FOR THE AWARDS! (I hope I don't get into trouble for posting a link to the site...)

    Ok. I got my standing tickets here. The standing have gone, but still seated ones left.

    The site is part of See Tickets. You can also call to order, you don't have to order online.

    http://www.seetickets.com/gat/price.asp?code=378317&userid={AEF79EC2-A4BA-4B4D-8D9D-95DE8BE8BD83}&filler1=id1nme

    They are billed as Franz Ferdinand, but are the Award Show tickets (call and check if you need re-assurance).

    Best of luck getting some. Would also love to meet up before the show - maybe around 4:00? The doors open at 18:00 and the show starts at 19:00.

    Did you know that The Cure are also up for an NME award for best artwork for 4:13 Dream? Get voting!

    ps - anyone that manages to get tickets at this link are very welcome to buy me a pint! ;-) xxx

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thank you Jubline!! We were able to get a few more tickets just now. Pints coming your way if we meet you!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Regina! I am so happy that you got some. Hopefully some of the others will read this too and find that there are still some available!

    Fancy meeting up before for a drink? (No drinks needed - was only kidding!) - We would love to meet some fellow COF-ers!

  39. I think if the official meetup at the Beehive gets organized for sure we'll all be there. It's just hard to know when now that so many are going to the awards!
    Some of us are flying in the same day (arriving around noon) so the jet lag factor should make us all rather entertaining.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh blimey! Jet lag and then the wonders of the local pubs in Brixton - should make for a fun night!

    We are getting the train in from Nottingham so no Jet Lag for us, will see you there hopefully!

  41. Hi Jubline,
    Thanks for the info about the award show tix and the schedule. I think that your suggestion to meet up starting at 4 pm is excellent, but maybe we should push it back another hour or two in order to allow for a bit more leeway? If it starts at 6, that only gives 2 hours to socialize prior to the event and you know people will want to line up early to get good seats / standing places.

    What do you all think about starting our gathering at 2 pm? Then we can meet everyone and still have plenty of time to line up.

    ReplyDelete
  42. 2:00pm is great! Any excuse for early doors!

    I am so excited!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. We'll be there as soon as we get showered and spiffed up, I'm sure!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Knowing the public transport in this country, you will be over your jet lag before our train gets in! ;-)

    Looking forward to meeting you all there.

  45. Ticket arrrived, so you have to be there between 6.30-7.00 if standing. Lettter says due to filming standing tickets will NOT BE ALLOWED INTO VENUE AFTER 7.00pm. Don't be late.

    ReplyDelete
  46. are people still going to the beehive at 2 , friends arent coming until 5ish as working , I fancy an early start! should i walk into the pub with a sign saying THE CURE like taxi drivers have at the airport ?

    ReplyDelete
  47. o2 tickets - the real ones - are now with us! We are not going to be about on 25th but would love to meet up in/around the 02 on Thurs. No idea about when we might need to start queueing to ensure up fromt viewing and our tix are Door D. Can someone post COF plans on here....?
