Welcome Barack Event - Update

For all those of you eagerly following developments related to the President's visit - the Brits for Barack group have made some minor adjustments to the rally location:

Dear All

Further to yesterday’s email I am writing to provide more specific details of the meet points following helpful advice from the Metropolitan Police.

MEET-UP ONE – Queen Victoria Monument, North Footway, Canada Gate at the top of the Mall at 16.00hrs

We are now meeting on the north side not the south side of the Mall area at the above addresses as detailed here:


The President will arrive at the Garden Entrance of the Palace 17.15. I suggest we still congregate from 16.00.

MEET-UP TWO – Meet at the north side of Parliament Square on the Junction between the Whitehall and Great George Street at 18.00hrs

The President Obama will then travel to Downing Street for a meeting at 19.30. Downing Street and Whitehall are closed areas but the police recommend that we wait in this location:


Please try and get there for 18.00 hrs.

It should be fun and I’m sure President Obama will be delighted to see our support.

Best wishes
