If you haven’t heard, then quite frankly you must be living under a rather large rock. In less than a week, the first ever Annual Bloggers Bash is happening. YES IT’S REALLY HAPPENING PEOPLE. No more hiding behind computer screens in fear of meeting each other…! We are dragging ourselves out from behind our computer screens, jumping on trains and into cars and venturing into London. The BASH is here.
Before I go through all the final details, I am going to take a moment to remind you of a little something else that’s happening…. THE ANNUAL BLOGGERS BASH AWARDS.
You nominated in your hundreds, you have already voted in your thousands (literally) but there is still time to have your say. There are four days of voting left. Do you have a favourite blogger? Have you voted? If not, what are you waiting for? Get over to the voting page and have your say now. Don’t wait till 12pm Thursday (UK time), because it will be TOO late. I’ve had a cheeky look, and several are neck and neck, with just one vote in it…..
Don’t worry, if you can’t make it to the actual bash, there will be a post with all the results that will go live on the day. You can also follow the announcements and award ceremony live on twitter using the hashtag #BloggersBash or on the Facebook group . We will tweet regularly throughout the day – if you are coming, please do use the hashtag to tweet your journeys and throughout the meet.
SO, the bash.
DATE: Saturday 1st August 2015
The British Library
96 Euston Road
Click the link for the map – but its basically next door to Kings Cross St Pancras train station.
PLAN: Meet outside the library by the Newton sculpture, you will find us with these fetching t-shirts on, our names are on the back incase you don’t know what we look like!
We have booked a restaurant (Pizza Express) for 12:30pm, so if for whatever reason you don’t make it at 11, then we will wait while we all gather and then be in the pizza express across the road, from then. Address: Clifton House, 93-95 Euston Road, London NW1 2RA.
During lunch we will announce the award winners. We envisage lunch lasting 2-3 hours because of the amount of us. Therefore, if you are wanting a rough idea of when to leave, this is probably the first good exit point. (don’t feel obliged to eat in Pizza Express if you don’t want to, it just seemed like a good idea to sit and eat!).
After lunch, there is an Irish bar a few doors down. This is where we will head next. Geoff will scout the way. Few drinks, winners enjoy their moment and general chats. From there I imagine people will drift home whenever suits.
The award winners will receive a wonderful t-shirt like the one Geoff is modelling for us in the photo. There are a number of t-shirts left over, so if you would like to purchase one, then they will be available on the day from Geoff for £6.
That’s it folks. There will be chat, laughter and general merriment.
If you want to check out some of the blogs of people going then here is the confirmed guest list so far:
If you’re coming and your name isn’t here let me know (I do have a list of tentatives, but haven’t posted them here). Similarly, if for whatever reason you can’t make it, please do let me know on the day.
