Friday 19th March, from 7pm

Hi all,

I've finally got around to seeking out new meetup venues for the group. In fact, I think it might be good to regularly rotate the location to keep things fresh. We've had a good run in Bennetts (and before that - Old Joint Stock, Old Contemptibles, Baccuss bar) but I think a move is now overdue!

Thanks for all of your suggestions for a new venue. I spent the afternoon in Birmingham yesterday, visiting a lot of bars and speakers to the managers. One thing became clear - there are no other meetup rooms available for free on a Friday night, centrally located. So instead I propose we take over a corner or pull tables together like in the old days! Its either that or stick to Bennetts, and I'm sure you'll agree we need a change.

Lets start the night off with a meet in Edmunds Bar from 7pm. At around 9pm we'll move onto Utopia and finish off in the Victoria late.

I recommend that new members email me through my website profile then I can email you my mobile number. That way you can text or call me when you arrive to help find us. There is a meetup jellybean card which we used to have sitting on one of the tables. Hopefully this will be visible throughout the night, but I cannot guarantee this as we won't be in a function room anymore. So please do ask for my number if you're new!

The evening is all about relaxing, making new friends and having a giggle within an informal and very laid back setting!

See you all there!

All the best
