Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, SE1 8XX near Waterloo station, 20th August , 11am onwards.
Bad book swap! Bring any book you don’t like, for any reason (cover too purple, too few zombies, etc.) and swap it for someone else’s bad book. Or just come and chat!
The venue 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). I have tried to check with the centre to make sure the Blue Bar is free, but if not I will update this post and in the Facebook group to say where we are – or email me if you’re lost…

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.

(September meetup will be on the 24th – EDITED SORRY.)
ALSO NINE WORLDS!
If you are at Nine Worlds (and I think there are still some day tickets going?) there will also be a meetup there at 1.30pm this Friday. If you’re a CA regular or newbie, come join us for doodling and chat. A good way to meet people to say hi to later in the con!
I won’t have my Cthulhu with me for reasons of space, but I will be dressed as Rey and carrying a knitted BB8….
