This is totally exciting and I will totally help. Leon and me will be the planning consultants, yay.

Has the Emmaz social centre project been mentioned yet in this thread? Dunno if it's still an active thing - I haven't heard about those folks for ages, last I heard there was some disagreement about whether to open the venue north or south of the river, and http://www.emmaz.org.uk doesn't seem to exist anymore, but.... maybe those lot already looked into the ins and outs of doing something like this in London, and could share their knowledge. Other than Jon Active (Active Distribution), I dunno who was involved or how they can be contacted, sorry.

Oh, and of course there's the Cowley Club in Brighton. They do gigs, serve alright beer, and are members-only when the bar's open.

And - back in London - there's a bunch of locals in Nunhead who are trying to buy the Ivy House pub (which has a beautiful ballroom and stage, Ian Dury etc played there back in the day) from developers, and turn it into a co-operative pub:

http://www.eastdulwichforum.co.uk/forum ... ?30,873197
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/vie ... LXF2d1E6MQ

That first article mentions an existing co-op pub in Salford, and also talks about some issues that the Nunhead folks are up against.

Thanks Victor (and everyone else)

I am setting up a mailing list/private forum to discuss details with those that are interested tomorrow.

Message me with an email address if you want an invite....

Trev, can you add me to this? I'm away at my mum's for the weekend but you've got my email address, haven't you?

I don't know how I could help with no particular expertise, but would be happy to if I can.

My dad is a Health and Safety consultant so I'm sure he would help with that side of things.

Ah, people need to sign up first as you would on a normal forum and then I can email you the password to view the forum... (got my wires crossed).

Trev - I mentioned this to you yesterday but keep me in the loop - want to see how I can get stuck into this properly soon as I get some spare time...

Will do Tom.

You'll need to sign up over at this board to keep in the loop.

Still waiting for people to join before we can start making plans and seeing who can undertake what research etc.

Trev - seeing as the idea came from here (from you), is there any mileage in just creating a sub-forum on here to discuss it? Or not?

That could work - but I wanted somewhere where the finances and stuff could be discussed without being viewable to all - hence the password on that forum. Is that possible here for those involved. I know I'm not keen to discuss all this on an 'open' forum for anyone to see.

should be able to make a private part of the forum that's only viewable to registered users. i can then move this thread into it.

is that what you were after? not entirely sure how to all that, but i know it's possible.
When the people are being beaten with a stick, they are not much happier if it is called 'the People's Stick.'

Not really. This place has loads of registered users. I was after something that only people involved in the Co-Op could see. A password protected forum. Maybe it's just me that's uneasy about talking about all this out in the open.

Agreed in principle, though my attempt to sign up at the new one failed miserably. No idea why.

Odd it should just work once you get past the captcha crap. As soon as I spot people have signed up I email them the password to see the forum....

It should be possible to password protect a forum on this board. But I don't wanna give the admins a headache because someone is going to have to approve those that are given access to view it etc.

only just seen this thread, but I'm very interested in helping out, and also chipping in as well. I'll join the other forum later.

not sure I have any specialist knowledge so I guess realistically I'm offering myself as 'general dogsbody' if there's a vacancy. (I work well on my own and as part of a team, have 8 GCSEs and a good sense of humour.)

also I could supply my old drumkit as backline if needed - on a 'temporary' basis. (I say 'old', it works fine.)

How would this venue differ from Power Lunches? I'm not sure how they're organised, but they seem to sorted the whole food/drink/gig/rehearsal combination, plus they do their own sound and presumably the 'bar'/door staff are volunteers although I could be wrong. Everard will probably know.
