----------- Spinning@... Update -----------

Dear all



we have moved to a new location.... se here for the new treead

[Old link]





see you at the rag factory..





this is why we have moved...





We had discussions in the pub on Tuesday regarding the use of the market for spinning@spitz and thanks to friends we have a much clearer idea of whats going on:



Unfortunately we are not allowed back into the market for our workshops. It seems that while we have been out the market for the work, there has been a change of management. The new management appears to want to increase the value of the market area (gentrification is the term being used). This has led to many of the existing tenants not being invited to re enter the market, our selves included.



The stgeorges residents association would have had no idea we would not be allowed back in, so although annoying its not their fault. We still have contacts in the market and we dont want to cut out any future possibility of re-entering the market at a later date by kicking up a fuss, especially when there is no chance at all of us using the space in the current climate.



We need to do 2 things 1. Find a temporary place to play ASAP (see top) and 2. Find a permanent new home to help us move forward we need your help. Please think of the people around you, be it your parents, friends, colleagues etc and see if there is anyone who may be able to finds us a new home put the feelers out there.



If you find somewhere that fits our criteria (see below) then please get a contact name, a number or email and if appropriate, have a brief chat with them as a recommendation or personal contact makes a huge difference. If they are interested, forward their details to me and I will then chase it up.



We require an indoor or covered outdoor area with adequate lighting able to house up to 100 people on a Tuesday evening within 10mins from a tube and centrally located. We also require power to run a portable stereo.



On another note we have decided to have a Xmas party to raise some funds to help us secure a new spinning@..... s venue. The confirmed date is Thursday 20th December in a Brixton from about 7.30 pm to 1 am. More details to follow.



Hopefully we will get sorted very soon and in the meantime we will meet at the poet next week and maybe look at ice skating, bowling or something else there after.



Huge hugs



Kev and the guys at spinning@.... s

NEWS FLASH NEWS FLASH clap

Sptiz will be happening in a new temporary location.

Some lovely people tracked us down at the pub and offered us the use of a hall locally to the market. I have been there and it is a lovely chilled out private club in commercial road called Alhambi

The space obviously is not as big as we are used to however there is a decent size hall with very high ceilings and a sound system. There is another room the same size with couches and a pool table. They sell soft drinks and coffee and there is a nice outside smoking chill out area. It is a 2 min walk from aldgate east and about 7 mins from spitilfields.

Because it is a private club, I will require an email address from you to confirm access and to send you directions and details on Monday evening. Please pm me this ASAP only if you have not given this at spitz.

See you then

Devkev

Ah, so tonight was going to be my fist night down with you guys at Spitalfields...shame to see it's having issues. Anyone else eager for a spin somewhere (much prefer somewhere I can use fire too...). What parks in the Shoreditch area are OK for spinning fire, or do the police shut down anything?

I have spoken with ewan and i think we should have an unofficial meet tonight.. we wont be alowed in the market but its such a lovely day that we should play somewhere... there is a little public area near a statue in lamb street just next to spitz and i believe it is public space. I will be at the market area from 7pm onwards.. we can go to the poet later or if we get moved on..

If you get moved on there's a park just off Brick Lane - just past Cafe 1001, turn right on the corner with Coffee @ and it's just along there.

Spinning@Spitz

Due to building work there will be no workshops inside the market area untill September. Then we will continue as normal.

Please check our website for further updates and alternative venues.
www.myspace.com/spinningatspitz
or this thread

There may be a few of us meet near the statue in Lamb Street next to spitz at around 7pm and then onto the pub after.

This is un official meet and may be subject to being moving on. It is also subject to the weather being good. If its raining, we will be having a drink in The Water Poet 9-11 Folgate Street.

hugs

I'd love to go to the next one, but I really don't want to go on my own, as I'm really shy. And I'm not that good at poi.

hiya all.

it looks like it will be good weather on tuesday so we will meet as usuall at the statue in lamb street E1 (next to market) . This is un-official meet and may be subject to moving on, however we have not been moved yet, its been great (a bit wet recently) and as long as we are considerate to the people who live locally we should be fine.

I have been informed that it may be october before we can get back into the market and although the weather has been fairly kind, its getting dark, so efforts to find an indoor space will be stepped up and i shall keep you informed.

hope to see you on tuesday

hi!



I've been spinning for a while but not knowing anyone else who does my inspiration is wearing quite thin! I'm in west london so I would love to come over and say hi and meet some other spinning peeps (I'm not very good...still learning!)...



If this is on every tuesday I would have liked to say i'd be there tomorrow but with tube strikes that looks unlikely. Though I'd do my best to make it the tuesday after?

Hi there!

I'm new to London, from the Philippines. Been here for just a week. Was just wondering if the meet up in Spitalfields market is still on going? Passed by the other night and the usual area has been closed due to construction? Would appreciate any info on poi gatherings in London.

Thanks!
