The venue for this powwow is the same as in May 2013, near the Telecom Tower:
The King & Queen
. 1 Foley Street, London W1P 7LE
This is on the corner of Cleveland Street and Foley Street. See a map here
. (if the spot is hard to find, look at the Warren Street Tube symbol, move exactly southwards to Cleveland Street (half way to Oxford Street) and that is the corner with Foley Street.)
Nearest Tube stations: Goodge Street, Regent's Park, Great Portland Street, Euston Square, Warren Street. For public-transport information, see the TfL website
. (The present "planned works" timetable shows that there should be no problems in using the Tube to come to this powwow.)
To come to the powwow when you're in the pub: cross the downstairs bar room and go through the door marked "private" or "function room". The upstairs room has been booked from 2.30 pm until 6 pm.
As usual, the owner of the pub lets us use the room free of charge but he would like each of us to donate 1 GBP to the collection that he makes for a charity, usually Macmillan cancer-support. I'll be there with a collecting envelope!
If somebody would like to give a talk on a translation or interpreting-related subject or suggest a theme for the powwow, please let me know. If not, I would like to organise the event in a way similar to my previous powwows: at about 4 pm we'll have a sit-down session of about half an hour in which any of you can ask a question and the others can then answer or discuss the subject. This was a successful idea on the previous occasions where it was tried.
The rest of the time is for general networking and drinking (drinks are available from the bar downstairs).
