Unfortunately I don't know any venue in the surroundings to suggest. The only Pub I know by heart in London is the Dutch pub De Hems.
There must be something you can say..?

Plenty of pubs nearby...on FPR there's the Duke of Cornwall, the Distiller's Arms, the Old Suffolk Punch...a bit further down there's Southern Belle, and by the river there's the Crabtree Inn.

My knowledge on t'other side of Hammersmith Broadway is more limited, although I'm aware of the Wetherspoons, the Hammersmith Ram and a couple of others.

My vote goes to the Distiller's Arms. It has a nice big beer garden and is very close to the Apollo.

El, Johan, the rest of the board, including dear icy...
in your dreams or nightmares, your choice :P.
~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

I was being self deprecating. Or trying to be :P.

Go on put me down and at least a plus 1.

Is this before, after or both?

Can you recommend any reasonably priced local hotels? I was in Hammersmith months ago but didn't visit any pubs so I'll leave that to the majority.

Cheers.

Both, I'd have thought.

As for hotels...I don't know really. There's a Novotel in Hammersmith, and a Hilton in Shepherd's Bush, but I've no idea what the prices are like. There's also an Ibis in Fulham, relatively close to Freddie's house.

OK, I have stall standing for the 12th. I'm pretty nervous about it as I don't know London and I hope I don't get a giant standing in front of me. :P

A giant is good then, you might be able to persuade him/her to have you sit on their shoulders/neck!! ;)

I hope you have fun, maybe El can help you with London?

I will come to one night or the other's meetup if possible. Like I said in the other thread (for the Wednesday's meetup), I've never been anywhere outside Australia before, let alone London, so I may happen to get lost trying to find the venue for the meetup. If I can't find it on the Wednesday, I'll have a better idea for the Thursday!

Like you, Bijou, I'm in the standing stalls in front of the stage. Also like you, I'm hoping there's no big unit standing in front of me too! I'm 6ft though, so I'm confident of seeing most of the show..!
