Why don’t you organize a bigger meetup, not only for the local members. Even though it wouldn’t be official, you could invite Collis and other people from the staff. I don’t think they won’t accept. Moreover, people (like me) who are not based in UK but are close enough could join. A flight from Alicante to Birmingham is quite cheap actually.
Think about it, I’m not saying that a local and modest meetup is not a good idea, but it would be cool if you could do it greater.
So it looks like a good area for Envato members We should have our own little meetup, all the local members, and being in Fareham/Southampton, you should check out our film festivals which will both be taking place at the Lysses House Hotel
Might have to check that out as the Lysses is round the corner from mine. I live on the high street!
I think it would definitely be good to have a meetup for everybody who could make it.
@ChristineWilde – We’re talking to the ‘La Saletta Cafe & Wine Bar’ about a monthly indie film club.
Birmingham is a good one, its pretty central with good connections. I live and work in central Birmingham too, and know it pretty well. I’ve been here about 5 years now, and think its great.
anyone who want’s to come is obviously more than welcome, if people are flying in from EU and travelling across the UK then maybe we make a wknd out of it?
What sort of format are we thinking? A session from each marketplace during the day and then a good ol english pub in the evening?
haha as if you’re as close as Chorley! Should meet in spoons for a beer some time dude
Still it has the Preston code and it’s only down road!...By the way talking of Leyland, I went to Runshaw from 1994 to 1997! Lol @ Spoons, but I don’t drink! Also I work in Blackpool as a full time Lead Graphic designer…
