Hi,

I'm planning a SHINDIG. (This is already posted on some other forums, but the more the merrier.)

Date: Saturday 6th May
Place: FireFly Bar, Park Row, LEEDS, West Yorkshire
Time: 1400 till late (2pm)
Dress: Whatever you want (If you feel like dressing up thats fine)

I don't dress up as a rule but if you want to and aren't worried about being the only person dressed up that'd be cool.

I Love My Captain
"You hold till I get back."

I love you.
I love Browncoats.
Nobody will ever pay me enough to get me to go Leeds ever again.
*hugs*
And here's hoping that all the UK Browncoats turn out for it!

Aaaaaaah, if only I'd known earlier.. I'll be going to Manchester tomorrow but only for a week. No Shindig for me, then; can't afford another vacation in the UK . Also, a friend of mine insists I attend her wedding in May.

How's business?
None of yours.

Shamelessly bumping my thread as I want to meet new browncoats.

I'm fairly new myself so need other people as hooked as me.

Come out of the train station and you walk straight up the road with the banks on FireFly Bar is near the top on the right hand side of the road, opposite the sports cafe.

Yes but it's more of an Inara/Simon sort of bar than Mal/Jayne/Zoe sort of bar.

I do know a bar that's a very Mal/Zoe sort of bar but it's not called FireFly, unfortunately.

The FireFlt bar is down some steps, and it has this weird decking bit with a few tables. That's where we're meeting.

If anyone is coming but can't get there until later PM me and i'll let you have my mobile number, that way you can text me to find out where we are when you get to Leeds.

MikeC you have to come over now, I love accents. My former boss was a Geordie and he used to shout orders at me and i'd no idea what he was saying but i could listen to him all day.

Damn.

Just had a look and it would take me 2hours to get there depending on trains and would pretty much leave me stranded afterwards.

That's a bit depressing since I was hoping I might be close.

Sorry guys.
Would've been fun.

Depends on your definition of hot babes!!!

Gonna be plenty of people meeting (boys and girls). Come over say hi, you can decide whether there's 'hot babes' or not.

Did that sound like a challenge? As Jayne would say "See Vera get yourself all dressed up and go somewhere fun." (slight misquote but never mind.)

All you really need to know is we're Yorkshire lass's and mad about all things FireFly/Serenity.

I'm impressed! Yes Beltane's on the 1st of May (give or take a couple of days) It's a fire festival for the solar God Bel, and the start of summer. In old times people would jump over small fires to bring fertility to their lives (not just for pregnancy but crops, wealth, health, etc.)


We're gonna be meeting at the bottom of the steps to the FireFly Bar, there's a sort of terrace/patio with tables. I'll be there early and i'm gonna be wearing blue jeans, blue sun t-shirt, blue hawaiian shirt and a FireFly/Browncoat dogtag. I've got really dark brown hair thats just below my shoulder. If anyone needs/wants my mobile number so they can find us just email me and i'll pass it along.

So pleased someone other than me is *bumping* the thread.

Thanks. You pointed them in the right direction, they posted on the 23rd June thread on here. So i've replied through that.
And invited them to Shindig. (S'good if lots of people mention it to them.)

I'm just waiting on the cinema people checking with universal now!!! Hopefully it'll be ok. I'm crossing everything, really want to do this.

Have another bump, Just been told I may be working in Leeds this weekend, how fortunate is that.

If so I'll be the one trying all types of mudder's milk and will more than likely have a Jaynestown university T-shirt on. Suitably laced with milk an stuff of course.
