The 20th Anniversary Meet is coming up!


In London.

Due to a clash of values between this international website and the Wetherspoon’s pub chain, we will not be meeting at the Shakespeare’s Head.

The Core Team have found another place literally a block away, with wheelchair access and acccessible facilities.

All Bar One, on Kingsway, will accommodate us. Do they know what they’ve agreed to? Probably not…

The address is: 58 Kingsway, Holborn, London, Greater London, WC2B 6DX

Nearest Tube station : Holborn.


On the week-end of 27th-28th April 2019.

The pub will have tables booked for us 12 noon to 5 pm on the Saturday.

There can be a Friday Fringe for the early-arrivers, there can be a Sunday Supplement for the late-leavers.

The Friday Fringe is traditionally at the George Inn in Southwark. Their beer garden may or may not be comfortable in late April.


There are a number of points of interest not far from the venue. To name but a few:

  • Sir John Soane’s Museum is just round the corner.
  • The British Museum is a little farther away (10 minutes).
  • The British Library is under half an hour away on foot.
  • Some of us are planning to just sit around in the pub all afternoon.
  • Others are interested in visiting the Postal Museum, which has an underground railway.
  • There will be a quiz starting around 5pm.
  • There will also be a name tag competition. Be creative, wild or classic, so many possibilities!
  • Who?
