Can I suggest we meet at the Novotel Lille Centre Gares (49 rue de Tournai) before the concert unless anyone has a better suggesting. I don't know Lille at all so it's difficult to decide. I rang the hotel and asked about the bar area and it's quite a big one.
Not too long now!!!!!! :D
I think this was the plan for the previous meetup - obviously everything got put on hold! I don't know Lille at all, so unless anyone knows somewhere better, we could keep it there? (I think a lot of people were staying there before, not so sure now...)

This sounds ok unless anyone knows anywhere better.
We are staying nearby I think. :)

Yeah, a meetup sounds like a great idea. I was looking on google earth :roll: the other day that there is a little cafe within sight of the venue that might be handy too?! :D I'd have to look it up again though.

So far, on the Lille meet up list, venue TBC! are

Google earth?! :lol: Would never have thought of that, but that's a great way of scoping out the area :) I suppose it depends on how little the cafe is (or how many want to meet up).

Hi friends,
please count us (me and my husband) in for the meet-up in Lille. Thanks!

We are looking forward to see you all, old and new friends. I have missed some people in Gent, I hope we can meet now.... (pe ??? )
From what I have heard in Gent I think we can expect great attendance in Lille.

I found a handy guide to Lille from The Guardian:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/travel/2004/f ... apesection

I have seen the enticingly named 'La Palais de la biere' mentioned in several other guides to Lille as well. But perhaps people might prefer a cafe or something?

Please count me in on the Lille meet-up!
Am arriving about 2-ish on Eurostar, staying in Hotel de la Paix - wherever that might be.... - and have to collect ticket before concert. Somewhere not far from the venue sounds good, either before or after the concert - in fact, preferably both! :D

Hi Burningviolin
If there is a phone number for the little cafe I am quite happy to give them a call and see if they don't mind us meeting up there and of course it will depend on how many of us will be there. I will be with a friend. Can't wait!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Zodka this is the name and address of the cafe I spotted on google maps.


Sci La Paix Duez‎
24 Rue Paul Duez, 59800 Lille, France‎ - 03 20 88 16 15‎

The other suggestion was the Novotel, that is close to the venue too.

There was one other place I saw, it was a little bit further away about 600m walk, also it says open until 2am.

Le Versailles‎
43 Boulevard Louis Xiv, 59800 Lille, France‎ - 03 20 52 59 60‎
http://www.le-versailles.fr/

Hope this helps, glad someone has got the ball rolling!

Hi Burningviolin and everyone going to Lille

It might be a good idea to know roughly how many of us will be meeting before I give them a ring. Does anyone know numbers?? I will wait a day or two before contacting both places you suggested and also the Novotel again as it was such a long time ago when I spoke to them about it.

Hi all-that-are-going-to-Lille,
HugoD and I (Marjan) will be driving down from the Netherlands. Please add our names to the list for the pre-concert meet-up. With Hugo driving I'm sure we'll make it to the venue well before the time I finally arrived at the Ghent meet-up (i.e., after the majority had already left...)
