Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, SE1 8XX near Waterloo station, 12th October, 1pm onwards.

(Please note change of meeting time, 1pm rather than 12.  Also we will be on level 5)

Colouring in!  Please bring pens, pencils etc. and any copyright-free art to colour, 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 requirements, or you can also bring a packed lunch.

Meet on the fifth floor, facing the river, hopefully towards the left hand side (go up in lift 2 or 3)
