London New year Fireworks at London Eye (Desi Style)

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 079.512.777-81. 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).

Disclaimer -

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

Good thing is the travel is free on tube after 11.45 pm on 31st Dec!

Check your travel options before you leave.

Cheers - see you this evening!!

  • Kishore

    After trying to get through to Sherlock Holmes for 30 minutes i was able to get through and was in the pub for 1 hour. Sorry to miss you all since the phone I was carrying was a basic model. However this was first time that I was so close to the fireworks Display in London. I met some amiable South Africans in the pub AND had a good jig with some strangers to the good loud music!

    Hope to see you all at the next event

    nin kaur - saw you planned on bringing kids too. Good idea! However, just be careful that it can get quite crowded at midnight and it may not be easy to handle kids. I'll also look up online to check, what is the advice given by the fireworks organisers about brings kids - I'll update the thread closer to the date, so that you can decide.

    Kanika, nothing much formal in here. Just turn up on 31st at the venue in time - bring lot of energy and smile and make friends! ahead of the fireworks fun. There is nothing to guide really - it is fairly informal.

    December 23, 2012

  • kanika
