Afternoon All,

Well I have some info on the meet at Caffeine & Machine for you all to look over then we can start a list for those attending.

This is a ticketed event so please note you cannot just rock up like our other local meets and expect a space with us...

So Sunday 17th May 2020 we have 25 spaces reserved at the front of house at the venue to which I have a code (available in the meet chat), anyone else wishing to attend will need to get a normal parking slot.

So 2 types of ticket to get and both of them cost £10 for a reserved space so no favouritism lol (Parking is £5 on the door if you're not bothered about a reserved space as it could be full). Both options are per car prices.

Option 1 - This is for first come first serve members on the forum (not available on FB or Instagram unless we have less than 25 people), we have reserved spaces for us at front of house, cars need to be in and parked up before 9am at the latest (after this puts you in main parking), we will be reserving tickets for photographers and admin staff so that reduces the 25 down a little. Must be parked up before 9am latest and cannot leave till after 12pm (according to their email to me haha), as part of the parking fee for this option only, you will get a standard hot drink, a bacon or a sausage breakfast roll and a piece of exclusive C&M merchandise (that you can’t buy in the shop!)

Option 2 - Normal parking is also £10 Reserved (£5 for unreserved space on the door) but you may not be parked with the front of house cars but we will still be coming to see all cars as we normally would at our previous meets. With the £10/£5 fee you get a hot drink and parking. Parking for this option opens at 9am onwards.

I will create a chat with info available to book your tickets and then add your name into the relevant list to say which option you chose to help on the day.

Food and drink is available all day at the venue and reviews look good.

Hope that this all makes sense

If you'd like to join in this meet please make yourself known in this thread and you will be added to the Meet chat.

Cheers
Hi has a chat been created yet as I definitely want to be at this meet

Given the current situation do we think we will need to rearrange this meet?
We're in talks at the moment to see what's going to happen, it is a while away but yes things may need to be rearranged. We will update more when we hear from the venue and talk it over etc

Got this through from the host as expected with the 3 week extension things will not be going ahead for our meet (obviously) so we would to say that as soon as its safe to do so we will rearrange a new date keeping your old tickets will just mean they work on the new date.

Stay safe all

We hope this email finds you and your family safe and well.

First of all, thank you so much for pre-booking your parking in advance of your visit to us. Given the strange times we find ourselves in currently, we are reaching out to everyone that has pre-booked tickets over the next few weeks. Following the announcement made by the British Government today to extend the lockdown for at least another 3 weeks, we will be unable to open our doors to our wonderful customers in the near future, and for absolutely the right reasons.

Given the constraints we are currently facing as a business, issuing large numbers of refunds puts significant strain on our cashflow. To assist us at this time, we'd really appreciate it if you would consider rearranging your parking ticket to be used at a later date. We will be in touch with you once we have further clarity on the situation over the coming weeks, and we can arrange a date that suits you. However, if you would rather receive a refund instead, we can of course arrange that.

From all of us here at Caffeine&Machine, we wish you and your families the best. Please stay safe and we'll see you all soon.

Phil, Dan and the team at Caffeine&Machine.
