London Calling 2023

Less Than a Month to Go!

There’s now just less than a month to go until London Calling 2023. The organisation is being finalised, and volunteers have been contacted. So without further ado we have a few things to announce as these seem to be our frequently asked questions at the moment:

  • Tickets will remain on sale for £5 for adults on our online store here until 19th April. At that point the entire store will be closed until after the Mega so we can sort out the preorders. They will be on sale on the day as well for £10 for adults. So buy your ticket early and get it for half the price.
  • Children’s tickets (under the age of 15) will remain free throughout.
  • We have ordered some additional hoodies and t-shirts, so if you didn’t manage to pre-order one in advance, then they will be on sale on the day.
  • We will also have some new merchandise going on sale on Mega Day – new patches and keyrings.
  • For those that don’t want to come into the vendor hall, see Signal, do the gadget labs etc – there will be an outdoor logbook at the reception desk. For those coming in, there’s a larger logbook inside but you can sign both if you really want.
  • We have several geocaches going out just prior to the Mega. Not huge numbers as there are loads already in London, but hopefully the ones going out should make it easier for the icon hunters.
  • We also have quite a lot of outdoor adventure labs going out. These will be permanent features of the geocaching game board in London. There will be a new set going out to coincide with our Friday evening event near St Pauls, and several new sets to coincide with the CiTO event on Wimbledon Common. Thanks to the cachers who kindly donated their spare sets of adventure lab credits to make this happen.
  • There will of course be a further 30 adventure labs being placed outdoors from the Mega account.
  • On the day, don’t forget we have two floors – if you can’t find something on the ground floor, then you’re too high! Go downstairs!
  • There is wheelchair access to both floors.
  • Remember last time around we had our volunteers in those bright yellow t-shirts? This time around they’re in grey – although they do have “Volunteer” in yellow letters across the front of them. Although we did try for neon orange. Maybe next time.
  • We’ve not got any internal catering this time – but we are just off Crawford Street, which has a range of independent cafes and restaurants. Boxcar Cafe and Deli is right outside and has seating on the square if it doesn’t rain. There’s also the Duke of Wellington pub just opposite the square in front of the church, as well as the Royal Oak on the corner of York Street and Enford Street. You’ll find loads of chain coffee shops and restaurants if you walk east to Baker Street or west to Edgware Road.

Tickets and Supporters Packs Are Now On Sale!

Attendees at London Calling 2021

We’re pleased to say that the tickets and supporters packs for London Calling 2023 launched last Saturday at the Official UK Mega in the West Midlands. We’re following a very similar format to London Calling 2021 and retaining the same ticket pricing.

Tickets, which will enable entry to the venue and access to the vendors, log book, trackable table and the on-site adventure lab caches, will be £5 in advance, and £10 at the door for adults. They are available here: Adult Ticket – London Calling 2023

Children under the age of 15 are able to enter for free, as long as they are accompanied by an adult. We would ask, however, just for number tracking, if you could “purchase” a free child’s ticket here: Child Ticket – London Calling 2023

Supporters Packs come in three levels, Bronze, Silver and Platinum.

Bronze Packs are £15, and contain the bronze version of the event geocoin (not the Sherlock Holmes/Signal the Frog geocoin) as well as three out of the set of five of the wood coins. Available here: Bronze Supporters Pack

Silver Packs are £45, and contain the bronze and silver versions of the event geocoin (not the Sherlock Holmes/Signal the Frog geocoin), four out of the set of five of the wood coins, a t-shirt exclusive to the silver/platinum packs and our first pathtag. Available here: Silver Supporters Pack
