GollanczFest 2015 - 17th October in London

Recommended Posts

Posting a new thread for this as it was taking over the general London thread a little bit.

 

So who is coming to the GollanczFest? There is an event in Manchester on the evening of the 16th, but work clashes, so instead I'm coming down to London, so do we want to make a meet of it as well?

 

Going

To repeat what I said in the other thread, I'll be going to this.

I think the Gollancz event finishes at 6, so I guess we could head to a nearby pub afterwards (or alternatively go get something to eat).

We'll be there! Probably will want to be heading home around 8/9, so if the pub is nearby we can pop in for a drink :)

Which station will you be going from? I'll be going from Kings Cross.


Us too, getting the Cambridge-bound train most likely. We can go back together if you like? :) which tube line will we need, do you know?

I think the nearest tube station should be Picadilly Circus on the Picadilly Line.

I've bought tickets (and they're going fast, Room 1 is sold out), so I have rather more firmly committed to this shenanivent.

Thanks William. :) Sounds like a plan going back together Dracarya!

Coolios. I couldn't decide, Rm 1 or Rm 2, so I bought one of each! If, once they release what they're doing in each Rm, if there is one I'm clearly going to prefer, I'll release the other back so somebody else can buy it, but for now, I've covered myself to flit between rooms. :)

You were smart. I've emailed Sophie Calder to see if there are any differences between the rooms, but I was too slow (actually, it was my SO, the sod) and missed room 1. But I'm gonna grab tickets for room 2 now just in case.

Looking at last year the difference is merely which authors are in the room at any one time and what they're doing. All authors will appear in both rooms across the day, but they may only do a reading (if they do a reading at all) in one room: for example last year Patrick Rothfuss did his reading in room 1 and then his solo talk and Q&A in room 2.

Ah fair enough. Sophie just said the line-up is the same (more info please?!), so I got tickets for room 2.

I wonder how many books I've got to drag into London for this event :laugh:

Just bought a ticket for room 2. Kinda wished I had got on this early and got a ticket for each room as well, nevermind. Should be a good time anyway!
