Learn Chinese in China

Short-notice London Meetup July 24th


Recommended Posts

Short notice, but hopefully we'll get a few folk out. Myself and Realmayo are on board. 


There's no specific plan, but it'll be


Thursday 24th July

Central London location

After work time - say from six onwards

Probably either in a pub which does food so people can eat if they need to, or if the weather's nice perhaps in a park? 


Who's interested? Apologies for the short notice - I've been meaning to do this, and am only getting around to actually organising it in the week before I leave the city.

Hi Roddy,


Could you let me know just in case. Doesn't look good today.

I am supposed to be somewhere else!


Thanks for the info

Three definite, a pencilled-in, and a few wait-and-sees. Not bad. 


I quite like the picnic in the park idea. I'm thinking Russell Square - nice little park, near to a couple of tube lines, small enough nobody will get lost trying to find us, few supermarkets and sandwich places nearby for people to get food, and if it rains there are nearby pubs to retreat to. Plus I'm quite often nearby anyway.


How does that sound, and does anyone have any alternative suggestions? Yang Chuanzhuang, where will you be coming from? Will need to see what the weather's like (if it's like today I'll be relocating us to besides the chiller unit in the Brunswick Centre Waitrose).

How irritating.  You're all meeting up less than 5 minutes walk from my flat and I'm not going to be there!  Next time I'm in London for more than just a weekend I'll have to copy this idea.

I was hoping that there'd be a meet up in England, but not the opposite end of the country! Am i the only one who's stuck up north alone? I'd love to meet other people who are interested in China, but no-one's bothered up here. Japanese rules the north!

Sounds like its gonna be fun for all those going. i am not able to travel to London at such short notice.


But I would love to come to town and go to Gerrard St and spend an afternoon browsing the bookshops, clothes shops etc.


So if anybody ever plans one of these outings, I will do my best to get there.


Enjoy and we expect lots of photos of happy smiley faces. :)
