UPDATE: We will be in Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese on Fleet Street from 7pm.
We have tables in a "semi-private" area booked. I've allowed for both the people who have RSVP'd here and those I've heard from separately, plus a few spare seats. It'd be great if people could still reply here though, as it does make it easier to gauge numbers.
Looking forward to seeing you all.

The current shortlist is: The Old Bell Tavern; Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese; Ye Olde Mitre and The Seven Stars. The final selection will come down to the likely numbers (not all pubs are as relaxed about table bookings as our friends at the Sekforde and the Bowler.
Come for conversations about long-term thinking, deep time, futures, maintenance, a wide range of -ologies and -isms depending on the crowd, and all kinds of attempts to think even just a little outside of the rapid fire frameworks encouraged by these accelerating times.
