I'm likely to be in London soonish.  Although I suspect that trying to round up London/UK mustachians is akin to herding cats, and I'm out of the London scene so open to alternative suggestions on a venue, I'm going to suggest -

The French House
Dean Street, Soho
Wednesday 11th November
5pm onwards
With a fake moustache in your buttonhole.

Any takers?

I'm not sure what a buttonhole is, but I'm glad the "on" was added.
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, and now travel the world full time with two kids.
If you want to know more about me, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (occasionally) blog at AdventuringAlong.com.
You can also read my forum "Journal."

@former player --- the Facebook group referenced above is active.  You might try cross-posting your meet-up idea there. 

I'll also be in London then, but a toss-up on whether I can attend due to work obligations.

Player, we are planning to meet one week after that if you're free. If not, I'd meet you for a beer on the 11th.

Week after doesn't quite work for me, sadly.  Lovely offer from you to meet next week.  Anyone else on for that?

Hey friends, I live here now so let's hang out?! Grant has offered his place for potluck and maybe board games. How about late January? Thinkin' one of the 23/24/30/31. Post if you have a preference!

I ended up missing the last met up due to last minute work drama but would be keen to join in if I'm free

Wish I could but both those weekends I will be trapped in hospital land on shifts.

Have fun those who make it.

I have a free weekend...Mid February?

Either Sunday would work for me.  Just need to know the details a few weeks in advance so that I can make travel plans coincide.

Alright, does anyone prefer one weekend to the other? Or Saturdays vs Sundays?

Did the meet up happen and if so when is the next, if not who is up for one?  I know some good pubs - away from the tourists!

Hi Mustachians,

There is group on facebook for MMM followers and we have an active membership of FI'ers, including some FI/personal finance bloggers.  We have had a few meetups in the last few months, one forthcoming on 16th November and another on 21 December - all in central London.

The group is called "Financial Independence London".

There is also a group called "Frugal and Freegan London" which complements the financial and philosophical content of the FI group, with money saving tips, offers, events etc.

Please look us up and free to join either or both groups.

John.

Hey FIers,

Probably a bit late too, but I'm in London too and recently met with fellow members of the group.

I'm really interested in discussing the differences between London and the US lifestyle. The mindset remains the same though!

Cheers,
Michael

It was great to meet you at the last meet-up, Michael.  Looking forward to chatting more next time I'm in London and learning more about the UK approach.

I believe email notifications is not working for this thread.

I checked this thread manually and found new responses. Checked my emails, checked thread settings.

Everything seems to be correct, but I've been notified only once (on 21/02/2015)! But there have been a dozen replies since...

Anyway, sent I've sent a request for the group on Facebook. Will join the next meet up.

Hi everyone!
I've just found this forum and thread! I think people here might find the Financial Independence London Facebook group interesting. It organises fairly regular meetups of people interested in FIRE/savings/investing/frugality/etc.

See all of you soon? :)

Cheers,
Aleksander

Hi londoner mustachians!
We're Emma (from Scotland) and Robert (from Romania).
Hope to see some of  you at the Financial Independence Week Europe (FIWE) in Timisoara which we're organising in September.
Apply as long as there are spaces left.
It's going to be a non-commercial fun event to meet like-minded people, eat some local food, dring some local alcohol and most importantly: talk, talk, talk :)

There are direct fights from London (wizzair and ryanair)...

All details here: http://whatlifecouldbe.eu/fiwe/

Cheers
Mr W
