    Hi,

    I'd like to know if this expression can actually be used when implying that some people get together to do something. For example : It won't be something very big, just a gathering together of old friends. Another context : This is not a demonstration, just a gathering together (i.e. some people getting together). Is it possible ?

    Thanks

    I would just say 'a gathering of old friends', or 'a reunion'.

    I feel that 'together' is more appropriate when you do all the gathering: a gathering together of data, of scattered information, of different opinions. With people, they themselves gather, and 'together' doesn't sound quite as good.
