Upcoming events

Our events are scheduled on a rolling basis, where possible three months ahead. We try to put out the discussion notes (where relevant) at least a week in advance of the meeting. You can book the next upcoming event(s) on the Meetup page.

IDEAS FOR FUTURE EVENTS

These are just a few of the ideas we have; we are open to suggestions as well as to people who would like to propose their own events (occasional or more regular), provided they are within the scope and spirit of the group. Also feel free to drop me a line if you have a particular interest in any of these topics, could contribute to discussion notes etc.
