In 2012 I organised a meetup group called Dickens in London, inspired by the great novelist's bi-centenary and to take advantage of the many events that commemorated this. Victorian London is intended to extend this thread. It is a group for anyone who wants to explore Victorian London. We will visit historical buildings , museums, exhibitions and go on Victorian literary and historical walks. Possibilities include the Cummings Museum in Southwark, the newly refurbished Dickens Museum, a history tour of Wilton's Music Hall and the Florence Nightingale Museum. There are so many exciting possibilities... We will always end in a cafe or bar. A meetup will be arranged every 4 - 6 weeks, usually on a Saturday or Sunday but sometimes on a weekday evening. I will usually keep the group quite small (20 max). If you have any ideas, please get in touch.
It is very easy to click and join or RSVP - that is the beauty of the web. However, the downside of this is that last minute cancellations and no shows are frustrating for me and other attendees. Also, the Meetup organisation now charges me more for having more members. I know this is corny, but please "Think before you click!"
I have decided to usually remove members who : -
• do not visit the site for more than 3 months
• do not show - it is easy to contact me via email or text right up to the last minute
• have been members for more than 6 months but have not attended a meetup (This may vary if I have not not organised very much)
