We’ll get in touch with everybody by email a week before (either on Fri 3 or Mon 6 Feb) to check if you still want to come and confirm a couple of days before.

Unless this event get extrememely oversubscribed it is very likely you will have a space.

There will be a free drink for you when you arrive (wine or soft drink) and the second floor bar will be open if what’s on offer is not what you want.
