London Meetup April 20

London is meeting up again.

Dear Awkward Army,

London meetup next weekend, 20th April!  All welcome.

11:00 am onwards, Cafe in the Crypt, St Martin-in-the-Fields Church, Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 4JJ.

The previous venue is closing, and this one has been recommended.

The cafe is underground, and is accessed via stairs or lift, next to the church on the left if you’re looking with your back to Trafalgar Square or the National Portrait Gallery. They have accessible toilets.

I have long brown hair and glasses.  I will bring my plush Cthulhu to use as a table marker.  It looks like this:

My email address is kate DOT towner AT gmail DOT com

As discussed at previous meetups, I am happy to teach people to knit, so if you want to start or want help, bring something along!  I am an intermediate rather than advanced knitter but I will do my best.

Next meetup is probably going to be the 1st of June, due to me having no free time in May.

We have a new Facebook group here to make it easier for people to keep track:



Have a great time. It’s awesome to see a regular thing happening.

    Hurrah! I love the new meeting place. I’ll be able to go pay my respects to Jane Austen’s portrait at the National Portrait Gallery next door 🙂 (what do you mean, I’m obsessed?)

    Have fun, London! And, UK folks, don’t forget that Bristol has a Facebook page too. If you’ve been to a Bristol meetup, or think you might one day, or even just want to check out how awesome we are, you can find us at =)

      Cool – I’ve joined your group just in case I’m down that way. There must be a way to link the two groups together in FB as well…

        I’ll have a look, and at least post a link to London on Bristol.

        Also, Kates with chunky glasses are clearly the coolest people in the universe. /nod

          Cool, and I’ve posted your link to ours.

          Particularly with long brown hair, I think…

    I hope this isn’t too presumptive, but has there been any thought as to the date of the meetup after that? I’ll be in London during the first two weeks of July, and I’d love to meet some Awkwardeers and just relax a little bit while there (as I’ll be traveling alone and have all of one acquaintance in the city). I know it’s a while away and I’m not even a local, but it’d be awesome if it happened to fall in that timespan. 😀

      Dunno yet, but if you send me an email I’ll let you know… Email address in the body of the post above, or you could join the Facebook group. 🙂
