Remember we said we would probably try a different venue for the June meetup? Well, we've booked somewhere - sorry to those of you who thought we would be at the 'usual' venue! For June we will be meeting at: The Old Shades 37 Whitehall The nearest mainline train/tube is Charing Cross. Turn left from there and go until you hit Trafalgar Square, then left onto Whitehall (not hard left, more in the direction that Nelson is looking!). The pub is on your left - it is a very narrow frontage, so take care not to miss it. We have booked the area right at the back of this long pub. The OBCZ is on the right as you enter the pub, so do have a look on your way in! The area is booked from 7pm. Food is available - I'm not sure what time they stop serving, Mary will be checking that out on Thursday so I'll update here then. Hopefully this venue will prove to be a good alternate for when we need wheelchair access. Anyway, let us know after the meetup how you think it compares with the Camel and Artichoke!
An opportunity to meet other London BookCrossers, chat about release techniques, recommend books and, of course, swap books. You need to be signed in to www.bookcrossing.com before you attend.
