You are welcome to arrive at the monthly meeting venue any time from 6.30pm onwards for drinks and cakes etc. The main talk starts at 7.30pm and usually lasts around 30 to 40 minutes. There is then a short break after the talk for you to get more drinks and cakes etc before we go into the main discussion session.
