London Meetup : June 20

Kate has sent the news:

June London meetup as follows:

Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, SE1 8XX near Waterloo station, 20th June, 11am onwards.

Knitting, crochet and other crafts this time.  Please bring projects, or stash, or come and talk to us while we knit.  I can teach knitting to intermediate standard if you want to learn, but others who can teach knitting and crochet are particularly welcome, and please bring stash etc. if you can.

This venue is working out really well.

They sell food in a cafe (standard sandwiches etc.), but they also don’t mind people bringing food in from outside. There are several other local places where you can buy stuff as well. The excellent food market outside has loads of different food options, which can fit most food requirements, or you can also bring a packed lunch.
Meet on the fourth floor, outside the Blue Bar (go up in the JCB lift, lift 7, which is bright yellow and quite musical).

Here is the internal map of the Royal Festival Hall: http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/sites/default/files/documents/RFH_map.pdf

I will have my Cthulhu with me, which looks like this: http://forbiddenplanet.com/3950-cthulhu-baby-plush/  One time I forgot it but I will do my best this time, however if I forget again I will put up a sign. I have long brown hair and glasses.

The venue is accessible via a lift, and has accessible toilets.  Waterloo tube station has step free access on the Jubilee line but not on the Northern line.

The London Awkward group has a Facebook page, which is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/549571375087294/.  There is also a thread in the new forums for saying hello.

(July meetup will be on the 18th.)

Cheers,
Kate

Enjoy yourselves!

  1. I… I would like to go although I cannot knit. I can bring felt to make Marvel themed Christmas decorations because I am a giant dork. Also I have no Facebook. Is that OK?

    • Yes of course! All welcome, but giant dorks in particular

      • Hi Kate, sorry but I have to work all this weekend now so will not make it this month. However, I have sounded out the idea to a couple of friends who also read CA and we hope to come mob-handed to one of them!

        • Excellent. If you didn’t see above, the July one will be the 18 th.

    Is there any chance of a Chicago meetup this summer? I’m in Chicago for a summer fellowship, and would love the chance to meet some fellow awkwardeers.
