Surely many people like to have lunch at lunchtime?  And allowing for
people to travel there and back, questions, and muffins doesn't really
give any talking time.

More to the point, whichever venue is chosen severely limits those who
can attend to being nearby -- whereas for a day people can come from
farther afield.

See, that's exactly what I'm talking about --  London-Cambridge for a
day is far more feasible than London-Cambridge for a lunch hour!
