London January meetup

EDIT: 14th not 15th as a kind commenter pointed out!


Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, SE1 8XX near Waterloo station, 14th January, 11am onwards.

The theme is New Year’s Revolution! This is the time of year when we’re deluged in body shaming etc, so let’s counter that. Please bring a (positive, supportive) resolution to donate to the group, and then people can take away any they find helpful. 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:

I will have my Cthulhu with me, which looks like this:  I have shoulder length 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: There is also a thread in the new forums for saying hello.

(February meetup will be the 18th.)

  1. Hi Kate, sorry I couldn’t make today (am working, booooo), but my NY resolution to donate is: wearing my fancy perfume every day, even when I’m just working from home. Not possible for everyone I know, but it’s helping to counter the dark days. I will also miss Feb’s meet-up because I’m going skiing (seriously, skiing: what was I thinking), but it would be great to join you for March. xx

  2. The downside of using the notification email as guide. 😖 I wish WP would send notifs for post updates. (Yes, I am in the RFH on my own…)
