Venue details

Entrance to the building is next to Hello Fresh reception on Vandy street.
The best way to access Vandy street would be from Worship street as at the moment there's Thames water work on the other side (Snowden street), it might be cleared up by then - but just in case.

A big thanks to our wonderful sponsor Geckoboard ( for making this happen!

This event is for anyone that identifies themselves as women and/or gender-minority publicly or privately.
