Directions and location information:
At previous events GDC members have found this venue/particular room hard to find.
This event is being held in the Francis Bancroft Building - Room Number - FB 1.13.
Please see this map for further information (the building is numbered 26 on this map) http://www.qmul.ac.uk/docs/about/26065.pdf
The actual signs at the building will say 'Bancroft' building only rather than Francis Bancroft.
From Mile End Station you will need to turn left out of the station and then continue for 5 mins approx. up the Mile End Road and then cross over the road to the QM campus and go into the East Gate. This is the first entrance to QM you come to when coming from the direction of Mile End Tube. Continue straight on up Westfield Way for a couple of minutes and then bear left at the Curve cafe. The Bancroft Building is on your right (number 26 on the map).
Informal discussion and networking to continue at: Drapers Bar, QMUL Students' Union - http://www.qmsu.org/drapers/
