Forthcoming meetings

Thursday 28 February 2019 at 1 p.m. – O’Neill’s, 73-77 Euston Road, London NW1 2QS

Our next meeting will be a pub lunch, doubtless with indexing chat thrown (if anyone is keen to raise an indexing issue please do suggest a topic). We will meet in the upstairs bar of O’Neills, a short walk from King’s Cross/St Pancras stations, on the corner of Judd Street. Everyone is welcome and it would be particularly great to see a few new faces. Contact Rohan or Christine: so that we can get an idea of numbers and book a table.
