ProZ.com powwow: Come and meet some fellow translators!

March 5, 2011, 2:00 pm
United KingdomNottinghamIn personEnglish
Hello everyone!

Come to the Nottingham powwow on Saturday 5th March at 2pm, at The Art Organisation, Station Street, Nottingham. http://www.theartorganisation.co.uk/taonottingham.html (to be confirmed).

This will be a lovely chance to get away from the computer and interact with some real-life fellow translators.

The proposed location is also ideally situated just one minute away from the station (I'm not kidding!), on Station Street. It's a nice, large venue with some interesting and creative exhibitions and a cafe.

I am waiting to receive the final confirmation on the venue, but this should not be a problem. If it is, I am sure I can find somewhere else not too far from the station, for the convenience of those that have to travel.

I am happy to provide my phone number and email details nearer the time.

I look forward to seeing you all!

Rose

Hi Rose,

Regarding your message about a venue, in the past we mostly went to the pub without reserving. If numbers don't get too high this shouldn't be a problem. When I organised the powwow I chose the Orange Tree which has a large table in the back that can easily be hijacked. Other venues have been The Olde Trip to Jerusalem and Canal House. The latter is really close to the station as well.

So is the Art Organization out of the picture then?

Well it costs 15 pounds an hour. Whilst the location is ideal, the cost is not...

The Orange Tree sounds like a great idea. I was warned that the Jerusalem was crowded or noisy? I do not know the Canal House, but if that is a good idea, sure.

I'll see what everyone says then decide nearer the time.

Thanks for your comments, Mattijs (by the way, didn't we meet at Nik and Fin's a while back?)

Venue confirmed - The Art Organisation Feb 7, 2011

I've spoken with the people at The Art Organisation again, and they are happy to seat us in their cafe area, providing some extra chairs if necessary.

It should prove very convenient for those that have to travel!

I hope to see you all then!

Rose

Just in case anyone is likely to have travel issues: there is an anti-cuts demo in the market square 12-3 (although that may merely occupy many of the Art Org's regular customers) and it's Forest v Hull at 3pm, so expect traffic congestion and busy trains.

Thanks for that, Roger. I use public transport myself, but that might affect some people. I'll be glad to whiz past any angry mobs (political or football-related) in the tram!
