Talking to Strangers #22

Hi all,

Happy New Year!

It's time to schedule Talking to Strangers #22, which will be taking place on 30th January at the Devereux, a fine pub in Devereux Court, just off the Strand.

We couldn't ask for a more suitable pub to come together and talk to new people, as the Devereux has a strong conversational pedigree dating back to 1676, when it was built as the Grecian Coffee House. The Coffee House was the scene of many of the great political, theatrical and scientific conversations of the 17th and 18th Centuries. Isaac Newton is even said to have once dissected a Dolphin upstairs.

As always, we'll all be talking to people we have never met before, and discussing some thought provoking questions and having conversations. We'll provide some things to think about and move you around during the evening so you can talk to a few different people. Once again we'll be making a small charge of £4, which we hope you don't mind too much.

We look forward to seeing you there.

With best wishes,

Tom Jones

    Any chance of increasing the numbers? I think I was the hundredth person to RSVP and I couldn’t add one. My friend wanted to come. I was hoping someone people would drop out so I could add her but now there are 26 people on the waiting list and it’s just getting longer.

      Hi Abdul, I'm afraid it's a space thing. There simply isn't space in the room so we can't. Sorry.

    Hi I'm new to this group. The event sounds great, but what is the £4 charge for? Just curious....

    January 26, 2014

    • Tom

      Thanks Nick, have sent you a message. Do let us know if you feel you can't afford the £4 for any reason.

      January 27, 2014

  • Andy

    I am positive I clicked the attending button ages ago when it was first announced but the site seemed not to have registered it. Now I am on the waiting list. VERY disappointing!

    January 25, 2014

    • Tom

      Sorry to hear that Andy. That must be disappointing for you. Hopefully there will be some cancellations, there usually are.
