Leeds Lomo Xmas Market Extravaganza

So guys, since the lovely lomo meeting in York in July (well I thought it was lovely. . . . ), nobody has got their arses into gear and organised another one. This is a poor show and I have decided to take matters into my own hands as I think 1 northern meet-up every six months should be mandatory (until the Galery store in Manc blows my little shindigs out of the water!)

So my plan is, invite all the crew from last time, plus any new people we might have befriended on the way for a Saturday or Sunday of booze, sausages, carousels and of course cameras at Leeds Xmas Market. It is not the hugest market in the universe (or even England) but we could meet after lunch time (as I know the early start of York almost killed a few before we’d even started – Andrea I mean you!) and spend the afternoon, evening there and in the surrounding bits of Leeds (art gallery, museum etc – both free). The weekends I have in mind at the moment are the last one in November or the first one in December on either Saturday or Sunday. So the 4 possible dates would be:-

Saturday 26 November
Sunday 27 November
Saturday 3 December
Sunday 4 December

Same as last time I am just trying to see if this would get many attendees and what dates people would prefer. Let me know if you’d all rather I just dropped dead now and stopped planning shit you’d rather not do!

    Saturday. Make it a Saturday. SATURDAY.

    I don't care which, but I'm not dealing with erratic British transport timetables on a Sunday!

    Right I am feeling like 3 December. Does that suit people? I might ask Lomo to publish an event like last time. Do we think a start of around 1pm would be ok this time?

    @jonalon - where the hell do you live so that there is no train at 11am on a Saturday?
    You are more than welcome to stay at ours (me and @fletchinski84) either on the Fri or Sat nights if you need to. As is @coldkennels

    3rd December sounds good, @kneehigh85 - are we going to have a festive lomo sleepover? I'll make the mulled wine, you make the gingerbred men. Deal?

    And I'm telling you, the Birmingham incident WAS NOT MY FAULT OKAY

    @coldkennels - whatever Trevor, all I am saying is it wouldn't have happened if I had been there. And I am not Betty Crocker, you'll be lucky with a cup of coffee in the morning x

    @jonalon, I don't know which night you're thinking of staying, although both are fine by me. I can pick you and Tony up at the station if he gets off this time!

    I'll see what I can do- not sure what's happening with my future currently (without wanting to sound too cryptic!) but I'll pencil it in! Excited- this would be my first meet up.
