Let meet up to celebrate new year 2013 in style watching the greatest new year show on the earth! "The London Fireworks"
The fireworks start at 12 am and attracted a quarter million audience last year - so clearly not a show to be missed!
Meeting point and plan
A) Meet at 9 pm at a pub near embankment - The Sherlock Holmes 10-11 Northumberland Street, London WC2N 5DB, This is on the way from Embankment to Trafalgar Square - as shown in map. I'll be outside the bar from 8.45 pm, wearing a black/white check scarf and my number is [masked]-81. Please follow post code/GPS to get to pub and call me only if you cant find me at the pub. - It could get very busy, hence I propose to meet outside the pub.
B). At 10.00 - for as many of us who have come, we'll move to a position near the embankment (shown on map below, idea is to take up a place on road, near Tattershall castle boat). Please note, I can't be 100% sure of our location as it depends on the crowds - so please try to meet at the first venue and come/walk together. If you are late, try calling me, but it might be difficult for me to guide people after 10 pm
And bring your own booze/drink to keep you going during this time.Also don't forget your umbrellas and warm clothes.
If we get a good place, then we will play games likeAntakshari, etc between 10 and 12 am).

The forecast for evening is not bad, but then its london weather - so be prepared for all scenarios
I cant guarantee that we'll have a great place to watch, however, based on my previous experience, I am quite hopeful that we'll get a good place to occupy if we can get there by 10 pm. Please note that our fun depends on you, so kindly cooperate with me when I ask you for help or holding a place.
Please bring Smiles but avoid too much stuff. Please read safety guidelines at the event website here - http://www.london.gov.uk/events/nye
