July 12, 2017 – Annual Pub Quiz at The Savoy Tup

For the third year running, the centrepiece of our July meeting will be a Fiendish Quiz, fiendishly created by fiendish Entertainments Impresario Paul Kent. Some of his questions have been known to start riots – it could be a controversial evening so well worth attending! We gather at The Savoy Tup (2 Savoy Street, Strand) from 6pm.

No need to book a place; just be at Exit 2 (Park Lane East side) of Marble Arch Underground station at 2.30pm and identify yourself as a Society member.


October ?, 2017 – Society AGM

Due to a concatenation of circumstances, the date and venue of our October meeting, which will feature the ever-popular AGM, are not yet known. If the location is The Savoy Tup, then the date is likely to be Tuesday, October 3rd (not our usual Wednesday night).
