    Just as a heads up to all attending the meetup tomorrow. Somerset House is preparing for London Fashion Week that starts on Friday this week. There will be security guards dotted around the entrance area, just ask them how to get to the 'Screening Room' and they'll guide you accordingly. Best entrance to use is the one on the Embankment Side. Closest Tube is either Temple or Charing Cross. We've got a good group that's coming out to the meetup tomorrow. Should be a good discussion, and I'm happy to buy a round to continue the discussion after. Looking forward to meeting you all.

    Hi All. Only a week to go before our meetup. Looking forward to meeting you all and have a lively discussion on containers. If you're not going to be able to make it, please can you just let me know either by sending me an email at [masked] or RSVP on here. For those coming for the first time, Head towards the 'Seamans Hall' reception at Somerset House and ask them how to get to the 'Screening Room' and they'll guide you.
