November London meetup

Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, SE1 8XX near Waterloo station, 19th November, 11am onwards.

Bad book swap! Bring any book you don’t want, for any reason (wrong colour cover, too few dinosaurs, etc), and take away a book someone else didn’t want! Or just come and chat with us.

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…

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.

My email is Kate DOT Towner AT Gmail DOT com

(December meetup will be the 10th and will be our 4 year anniversary.)

Cheers,
Kate

    These Meetup posts always make me a little sad I don’t live in London. 😦

      I do live in London but I have so far not managed to attend one. Somehow something always comes up, but I am going to try to make it to this one.

      What makes me sad is that Kate still tells us she forgot her Cthulu once. It’s OK Kate! We know you’ll your best to remember it but will put up a sign if you forget. I feel like this sounds like I’m taking the mick but I’m serious, it sounds like someone shouted at you for forgetting it and you’re still apologising 😦

      Signed, someone who lives far away from London but maybe one day will make it.

      • Aw how sweet! Don’t worry, no one yelled at me, except maybe me.

        Seriously, I try to make it as easy as possible for new people to find us, as I know how nerve wracking it is walking up to a strange group. So I was sad about screwing up. But you’re right maybe I should edit that bit next time…

  2. I can’t make this month (it’s the tenth anniversary of my brother’s death and I’m spending a quiet day at home) but I’ve put December’s in the diary and will definitely try to make it.

      I’m so sorry. Jedi hugs, if acceptable.

      • Thank you! Hope everyone has fun and I look forward to seeing you next time.

    I wish I could go, but alas live on the other side of the planet.
    Also, I love that a good reason for not liking a book is too few dinosaurs.
