Overview of the next 6 meetings

Apart from July’s meeting, which was postponed for a week, all are being held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, from 7pm.

There may still be a clash with other meetups: e.g. Cheltenham, Manchester, Edinburgh. But we do start slightly later. You can, if you wish, try to attend more than one meetup in an evening. I don’t recommend attending meetings concurrently.

We’ll continue to use Zoom and will record some of the meetings. We’ll edit the videos before publishing them on YouTube. This may not be done instantaneously.
