    Sounds excellent (no pun intended)!!!!!!!!! :D

    I missed this when they did it two years ago, and it ties in beautifully with CE, although I'm sure they may have planned that [face_mischief]

    I'm not sure what it looks like, but it wouldn't it be nice to have a FF picnic around the concert?

    Do you think they'd mind if the FanForce descended en masse to this concert? :p

    Bah, they expect it as these events are usually held in Hyde Park, so they must have an eye on the CE crowd just round the corner at the Excel. To be honest there isn't an awful lot of room around Canada Square so it may be a tight squeeze. Visually, however, a stunning part of London so it should be good none the less.

    Welcome aboard ObiAnne :D
    I'll ask em if they have any room JED1 :p Sure they will. I'm writing a doc/post up on ExCel and some things we can do (incl. this and the SW exhibition) outside of CE itself. Will post as soon as I am done, not sure when.

    Maybe these are two stupid questions, because the place is pretty close to the CE, but...

    How far away is the Concert from the CE? How long do we need to get there? And when do we have to leave CE?

    Thanks. :)

    From Excel, it should take 10-15 mins to get to Canary Whalf. To get a good patch in the park, we may need to leave early, around 6:30pm I'd say. But the CE timetable may throw a spanner in the works, and the weather :p

    Would anyone complain if we combined the CE FF party with this if we can't get the Fox on the Saturday (which is looking likely)?
