Well, that's 8 of us now which is enough for a decent Chinese meal and a good chinwag perhaps? Somewhere central, Soho/Chinatown district of London being the obvious choice...
I will also have a dig around in my events diary and see what is happening towards the end of November, start of December on the tech front as that might also be something to consider as a meeting point...
As the summer is coming up thick and fast, which will mean people off on holidays abroad, why not try for a weekend in May? Everywhere should be relatively clear and cheaper than during the peak times. Rather short notice but all depends on peoples budgets.
I would suggest Reading or Oxford. Easy to get to from most areas of the UK and fairly cheap in places to eat/drink/sleep.
I could suggest a few things, but its more to do with what people want. A meal? Drinking session? Go to a comedy club? Etc.
For drinking there is no better place than Liverpool, which again is easy to get to. Reason being that it is so cheap (£1 a drink), endless clubs/bars and stunning women :) Plus there are comedy clubs, special 'gentlemens clubs' and cheap places to stay.
Oxford is good for a few (expensive) drinks and take in the scenary for a day. Reading is a great place to eat, though bars seem rather far apart except in student areas, though we could be nerdy and visit Microsoft!
Hmmm, I seem more pro-Liverpool now... lets do Liverpool :)
