I've created a poll for the venue and the best day of the week for the meet to be held, after I get some results from that, I'll work out some suggested dates. The poll is located HERE
From the comments to my original suggestion of a meetup, here is a summary of some attractions at each of the suggested venues.
- Newstead Abbey
- The Pit and Pendulum
- Large Cemetary
- The Lace Market area, with lots of heritage and a few cafes
- Mimi and La Vey clothing shop - lots of lacey EGL / EGA clothes and accessories
- Market with lots of quality low-priced fabric
- A Church
If anyone has anything to add to the lists, please comment! There will be a mini photoshoot at this meet, and I'm also looking for nice traditional tea rooms in both cities, although so far I haven't had much luck. If anyone knows of anywhere, please also comment and let me know!
