FRIDAY 20 JANUARY (evening): SOCIALISING ON THE ROOF GARDENS (free event, including a welcome cocktail, but advance online registration on Eventbrite required)
(Optional) Meeting and Venue Details: Meet Gordon on Friday 20 January, between 7.20pm and 7.30pm, at High Street Kensington tube station (District and Circle Lines, Zone 1) in the ticket hall. We will go to The Roof Gardens, 99 Kensington High Street, W8 5SA. The entrance is in Derry Street. From the tube station exit, turn right and right again to get to Derry Street, and you will see the queue. You can view a map at http://tinyurl.com/jkd2lza . The Roof Gardens (formerly known as Derry and Toms Roof Gardens and Kensington Roof Gardens) were for many years the largest roof garden in Europe. You may like to check the venue's website: http://www.virginlimitededition.com/en/the-roof-gardens .
The Event: Our tickets are valid for entry between 7.30pm and 9.30pm, and those arriving before 8.30pm will receive a token for a complimentary drink. Please note that you will need to allow time to queue and show your ID downstairs, and time to queue for the lift, so if you arrive at the last moment, you will miss out on your cocktail. We can spend time in the bar area (indoors) and see the gardens ( http://www.virginlimitededition.com/en/the-roof-gardens/the-gardens ) too, and those who wish can stay and "club" until 2am.
Important: Please note that the dress code specifies "smart casual, glam or elegant" and no trainers nor t-shirts. It is a case of "no effort, no entry", according to the venue's website ( http://www.virginlimitededition.com/en/the-roof-gardens/the-club ). To enter, you will need to show a valid ID with a photograph. This means your passport, driving licence or a European/National ID card. Unfortunately, credit cards, travel cards and student cards are not acceptable. The minimum age for entry is 21.
Booking: To book for this event, go to https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/socialising-on-the-rooftop-with-welcome-drink-and-complimentary-entry-tickets-31002198410 , read the description, click on "Register" and complete your details (name and e-mail address is all that is required). You can only book for one person at a time, so separate registration is required for anyone you want to bring. I suggest you book as soon as possible before the offer becomes oversubscribed, as other groups will be booking too. Do not forget to take your ticket(s) with you.
