Sat August 6 at 6:00 PM, Belgrave Music Hall
1 Cross Belgrave St, Leeds LS2 8JP, UK (Map & Directions)
Residents of the north of Wangland represent!
longbaugh proposed the meetup but sadly can't make it this time, so this meetup is in their honour. Practice for the next one this year!

Belgrave Music Hall is relatively quiet now that the students are away, it has a pizza-by-the-slice place and a burger place, and a roof terrace.

Within 2 mins walk there are Nash's ('best fish and chips in the universe' according to Patrick Stewart), Hansa's Ayurvedic vegetarian Gujerati restaurant, Roots vegetarian, Reliance pub/restaurant (who cure their own meats), Fuji Hiro, Bulgogi Grill, Sushiwaka and shed load of take aways should an alternative location for eating be required.

It is 10 - 15 minutes from the train station by foot.

Looking forward to the weekend! Weather should be warm and dry on Saturday so the roof should be a good place to hang out! Can't book a table up there, but I'll try to grab one.

I'll post any updates to this thread.

I'll be there! (may be a bit later than 6 though, we'll see — I'm helping a friend move to Leeds tomorrow)

Leeds Pride is on this weekend, so there may be extra traffic and people about. There's plenty to do if you are at a loose end!

Excellent, I had no idea!

changes to t-shirt choice more suitable for the occasion.

You may have to queue to get onto the roof bar. Have third table on right with red cushions. Also I have red balloons!

I'll be a bit late, but on the plus side all of the stones for the patio and path are bedded in.

K we are still on the rooftop but on the left side now. Pink balloons are tied to the plant directly above us.

Good times people! Flipping forgot to take any pictures again. It did happen, honestly!

Well then, we'll just need to do it again, so we can get pictures. We had a wonderful time!
