Boo Celebration - 12th October 2013

[Full size invitation here]

 

Boo's friends, family, colleagues and neighbours are invited to join us on what would have been her 38th birthday - 12th October 2013 - to honour and celebrate her incredible life. 

At 3pm, there will be a ceremony at the Prince Albert suite in London Zoo, with speakers, video and live music from all the Boo eras, followed by tea and cakes. At 5.15pm we're being picked up from the zoo by canal boats for an hour-long boat ride up to Little Venice and back - the route Boo took every couple of weeks on her "poo cruise" for the ~15 years she lived on her boat Moonshine. At 7pm, there'll be a dinner, speeches and singsong at a restaurant in Camden (location TBC depending on how many people are coming - please register below), ending at 11pm or so.

We need to know numbers by Friday 6th September, please, so we can confirm and book a restaurant - and we also need everyone's names so we can provide a complete list for the gate of the zoo -  so please fill in this very short form to let us know your plans. We will email final details a week or so before the event. 

There are limited places on the boats, so it'll have to be first come, first served. Register quickly to get yourself a spot.

If you would like to have a free hour in the zoo before the event, just turn up from 2pm - we'll send exact details a few days before. As long as you've registered with us your name should be on the Boo Celebration list and the guard will let you in.

We're sorry we can't afford to pay for everyone's dinner after paying for the zoo and boats, so if adults could please chip in £15 each and kids £10, including drinks, Boo's family will cover the rest. 

Boo's dad will be running a live webstream of the ceremony for people in other countries who can't make it to the zoo. If you'd like to have the details emailed to you, please register on the same page, and choose the webstream option. 

Looking forward to seeing many of you on the 12th. 

Yours very sadly, 
Franny (Boo's sister) and Peter (Boo's Dad)
