The Chandos, London - a reunion?!

Hi!

Now then, many years ago Mark Leuty and I organised a series of rather raucous networking evenings where models, photographers and creatives met at the somewhat-of-a-dive Chandos pub, just off Trafalgar Square

Does anyone remember them?

I do, just.

Binky, Holly and many others might do too!

Fast forwarding to 2012, I discovered that the Chandos is literally a stone's throw away from a much more excellent pub, The Harp.

So, cutting to the chase, is there an appetite out there for a Chandos Reunion, even if we relocate to somewhere with much better beer?

New folk would, of course, be very welcome indeed.  It's a great chance for the creative community to meet up, swap stories and ideas, and hopefully plan new collaborations.

I just about remember the meet at Chandos a few weeks back  on Maundy Thursday.
Don't remember you being there tough.

Where could be better than a Sam Smith's pub in London selling Old Brewery Bitter at Yorkshire prices?

And they also have Covent Garden prices and the upstairs room is a bit on the pokey side, even if you are lucky enough to get it to yourself.

I've quaffed in there many times over the years, though equally there have been many times that it has been too busy to even get to the bar so I've gone round the corner to the Lemon Tree instead. That pub also has an upstairs room but it is even more pokey, but it doesn't get as busy as the Harp, which the CID from Charing Cross nick use as their local.

Tell you what then, we meet in the Chandos and I'll nip down to the Harp to buy my pints cheeky  Didn't realise that it was a CID pub!  Must watch out for that!

Right then, when's a good Thursday evening soonish?

Speak to Tansy_Blue. She's been trying to twist my arm. It's unlikely that I'll be in London much now until after the five ring circus has gone as I've got a rather packed work diary.

I might be tempted to come along. The person who organised the last one didn't do a great job. Lol

It's always tricky to get a bunch of people in one place at one time...

You are aware that I organised the last one? I agree it is tricky, but I think we had about 10-20 peeps turn up to the last do.
