I am going to be at Cafe Nero, just around the corner from Hove Town Hall from around 11am, if anyone does want to meet up for a coffee before hand. Please let me know if you are going to come for a coffee first, so I know who to look out for.
Details from their website shown below
(I am not sure it is very suitable for a group event, as it does get very busy, but in case people don't know that it is on, I have posted it here. Please comment if you want to try to meet up, before, during or after)
