Hello!

I'm coming to London for a conference in couple of weeks time, arriving October 14th and leaving on the 18th. At this stage I'm not really sure which evenings I'll have free to myself, but I'm wondering if there happen to be any public meet-ups going on around the London area during those few days, just in case I can make it along to one?

I hope you don't mind me posting this in your forum!

Check out https://www.meetup.com/LondonOnBoard/

Things going on most evenings (and weekends).

However it can get booked up pretty quick, so once you know evenings book.

A trip to 'Draughts' one evening could be worth while. I'm not sure it's geared up for casual drop-ins though. Usually larger groups. But maybe you'll find someone on here!

Perfect! Thanks so much! I'll try to lock in an evening for London on Board....and if my colleagues suggest we head out somewhere together at some stage, I'll try suggesting Draughts!

Just be warned it can get quite busy; so if you're planning on heading there it would be worth booking earlier in the day:

I've not been to any of these places but it could be worth considering too:
