Saturday Socialising + Live Music in Kensington (Booked entire pub)

  • August 24, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

• Note 1) We will be in the upstairs bar until 9pm (just walk up the spiral stairs immediately on the right after you enter the venue). Afterwards, most members (and the organisers) make their way downstairs to the ground-floor bar when the live music starts at 9:00pm.

• Note 3) Please can members kindly observe the waiting list.

• Note 2) We highly recommend  that new members arrive as close to the start time as possible (ideally by 8.15pm) - then it's much easier for us organisers to introduce you to the group before the night becomes busier. Organisers will be holding white attendance sheets and waiting to greet members. If we don't see you first, please ask staff/members for 'Martyn and Terry' so we can welcome you to the group.

EVENT DESCRIPTION:

Join us for a Saturday Night-Out at the beautiful Albion pub in West Kensington with live music being performed just for our group (mainly a mixture of popular cover songs).

We've booked the entire two-floor pub as a private meetup event just for our group. Please note that the ground-floor bar will become very busy later in the night. That is why we we have also booked the upstairs function room, where there tends to be more space.

The Albion is widely regarded as one of the best traditional pubs in London, with an exceptionally warm feel and very friendly staff (scroll down to view photographs of the pub). We've organised many events at the Albion and they have always been very well-attended and worked exceptionally well. The live music will not be starting until 9pm and when it starts there'll be plenty of gaps in between sets. While there's live music, it's still quite easy to make conversation in most areas of the pub.The Albion is open until midnight.

Directions to the pub (also view map below):

The closest tube station is Barons Court on the Piccadilly + District Line. PLEASE ENSURE YOU TURN LEFT OUT OF THIS TUBE STATION AND THEN FOLLOW THE MAP BELOW (THERE IS ONLY ONE EXIT).The  pub is a short walk from there - approx 8 minutes (along three main streets).The pub is near Olympia Exhibition Centre.

Please also note that you can also come from Hammersmith Tube station.This venue is also on major bus routes (9, 10, 27, 28, 391, N9, N10, N28). Just exit the bus near Olympia Exhibition Centre.

In the meantime, if you have any queries then please do not hesitate to contact us by email through this website. Click on my photo (Martyn) and just choose the option to send an em

    I arrived late but the party was in full swing when I got there. I had a brilliant time catching up with good friends and meeting new friends. Matt the singer was awesome and had a great voice. He really knew how to work the crowd. I was at the front where he was performing for a while. I.was dancing with others enjoying his wonderful performance. Everyone was on a high. Many thanks to all involved in organising a great night out with a special thanks to both Martyn and Terry. done

    Hi.
    Can I bring 1 or 2 people with me?

    August 24, 2013

  • Martyn L.

    IMPORTANT: There is live music tonight (and in the event description I didn't mention the act who would be playing). However, I did state yesterday in the comments box that it would be a duo called Syncho Funk. However, they've very unprofessionally pulled out three hours before this event. Despite me speaking to them yesterday and today to confirm the details. Mat Lynch has kindly stepped in last-minute (the talented solo-artist who played popular cover songs the last time we played at this venue). So it will still be a great night. However, to say we're annoyed with the band is an understatement. They didn't know we could find a last minute replacement and are fully aware of how many people they've let down.

      Thx for update. Their loss. A missed opportunity to get their music known via another 200 people - word of mouth etc. Looking forward to hearing Mat :-)

    We've just increased the capacity for this meetup by 20. This is because of the rain, which will increased the percentage of 'no-shows'

    Hi
    Wasn't sure I could make it, and saw the waiting list so I thought it not fair to be a " no show" with so many waiting. Looks really good - have a great time!

    Martyn when are you updating the waiting list? I wanted to come... I think there will be quite a few no shows due to rain!One of my friend also wants to come but he is not on Meetup :-/

    August 24, 2013

    • Martyn L.

      Hi Ethan, Please check my response to Kate below (it essentially explains how the waiting list is automated). And we do factor in no-shows when setting the attendance.kind regards, martyn

      Thank you.

    Roughly what time will you notify those wait-listed re space please?

    August 23, 2013

    • Martyn L.

      Hi kate, the waiting list system is automated. When one person drops out from then main list an email is automatically sent to the next person on the waiting list informing them that they have a space. They are then automatically moved on to the main list (you don't have to do anything). kind regards, Martyn

      OK thx Martyn. This would be my 1st Meetup with this group. I was asking so I can give myself a cut-off point to make other plans if it looks to remain oversubscribed.

    Is that tall, one man band guy performing again? He was a good laugh!

    August 21, 2013

    • Martyn L.

      Hi Pedro, this time we've booked a different 'two-piece' act named 'Sycho Funk'. They play all types of popular music - not just 'funk' as the name suggests. They went down very well when they briefly played at our Arch Bar event as one of the 8 acts.

    Sorry I can't make it, next time.

    I don't know what went wrong earlier, but the option of adding one guest or even +2 is now working (I just refreshed the event settings and they're working fine now). Those who have stated in the comments section they are a +1 can just bring their guest (there's no need to RSVP again). Otherwise please update your RSVP if you want to bring a guest - there are still 25 spots left at the time of writing this.

    1 · August 19, 2013

  • Martyn L.

    I've noticed quite a few members are stating +1 in the comments but have not RSVP'd as +1. You need to RSVP with a guest (as a +1) to secure a place for an additional member. Kind regards, Martyn

      Hi Martyn I have tried to do this but I am advised spaces for guests are fully booked. Is this the case or just an error?

    It doesn't give option here to reserve for a friend.
