We're combining forces with #britain, the local deviantMEET group, in order to make this event one to remember. On Saturday, June 30th at 12:00 PM, we'll be meeting at the Albert Memorial in Hyde Park for a day full of fun. Weather permitting, we'll hang out at the park, create art, talk all things deviantART, and simply have a good time!
Hungry? Us too! Deviants are encouraged to bring food and snacks for lunch -- picnic style. If you're feeling generous, bring a little extra to share with others.
Should there be inclement weather, the deviantMEET will move to the nearby Science Museum. The Science Museum is a short 10-minute walk from Albert Memorial and will allow us to take cover under indoor picnic areas. Keep an eye on this journal, as we'll be updating it with relevant weather-related information as the deviantMEET grows closer. However, the plan is to meet at Albert Memorial unless told otherwise!
After the deviantMEET, anyone wishing to participate in extra deviousness is welcome to join us at a still-to-be-determined pub -- somewhere within walking distance. (Those choosing to drink alcoholic beverages will need to provide proper identification.)
Rain or shine, feel free to bring sketchbooks, cameras, iPads, and art supplies to create and share your work with fellow deviants. Rumor has it deviantART staff might have free goodies for those in attendance!
This is an all-ages event, and we welcome you to bring friends. We can’t wait to see you!
Update, as of June 27th
The time is nearly upon us! Our London deviantMEET is just around the corner and we hope you have your calendar marked for Saturday, June 30th at 12:00 PM (noon). Our meet-up location is at the Albert Memorial in Hyde Park.
The plan is to enjoy a relaxing and fun day at the park, while engaging in sparkling conversation with like-minded deviants. Remember, this deviantMEET is part picnic and we encourage deviants to bring food and snacks for themselves, and maybe even to share! Additionally, feel free also bring sketchbooks, cameras, and any art supplies that will help make the day a creative event to remember.
Saturday's forecast likely includes a few rain showers, so we might be in for a bit of wet weather. Please dress and plan accordingly. (Maybe bring an old blanket to sit on and a jacket with a hood.) In the event the rain becomes too much, the deviantMEET will move from Hyde Park to the nearby Science Museum. However, we do hope to stay at Hyde Park pending any downpours.
Any important, late breaking, deviantMEET updates will be posted to deviantART's official Twitter account.
