New Year, new London Powwow! Jan 12, 2010

Dear London translators and interpreters,

the new year is always a good time for resolutions, and mine is to get out there, mingle and meet more representatives of my profession, so I thought it's time for a new London Powwow!

I know our last organiser Katharina set high standards, so if you have any suggestions about a venue, topic etc., please do get in touch.

If enough people sign up over the next week or so, I will look into a venue, possibly the same pub we

Dear London translators and interpreters,

the new year is always a good time for resolutions, and mine is to get out there, mingle and meet more representatives of my profession, so I thought it's time for a new London Powwow!

I know our last organiser Katharina set high standards, so if you have any suggestions about a venue, topic etc., please do get in touch.

If enough people sign up over the next week or so, I will look into a venue, possibly the same pub we used to go to, as it was nice and central.

So look out for updates and do commit to a more social 2010!

I'm looking forward to seeing you soon,
best wishes,

Kerstin

Powwow venue Jan 19, 2010

Dear colleagues,

I'm glad to see so much interest in this Powwow!

It turns out that the pub we used to go to started charging for their function room, so I phoned around a bit and it seems to be quite a challenge to find a pub in a central location with a function room free of charge.

I did however find a lovely place very close to Warwick Avenue (3 min walk) on the Bakerloo line and to Paddington (15 min walk along the beautiful canal in Little Venice). The func

Dear colleagues,

I'm glad to see so much interest in this Powwow!

It turns out that the pub we used to go to started charging for their function room, so I phoned around a bit and it seems to be quite a challenge to find a pub in a central location with a function room free of charge.

I did however find a lovely place very close to Warwick Avenue (3 min walk) on the Bakerloo line and to Paddington (15 min walk along the beautiful canal in Little Venice). The function room is small-ish but very cozy and the staff very friendly, so I hope it will do for our first meeting:

The Warwick Castle
6 Warwick Place
London W9 2PX

Telephone: 020 7266 0921

Directions: http://www.capitalpubcompany.com/the-warwick-castle/get-here.aspx

If anyone knows of a better place, do let me know. I hope this tube journey doesn't put anyone off, it's really very easy to reach and a much more pleasant walk than through crowded Soho or Covent Garden on a Saturday afternoon anyway!

I booked the room from 3-6pm on Saturday, 30 January, and suggest we make this powwow a brainstorming about future topics that people might be interested in. I will bring my conference transcript from the recent BDÜ conference in Berlin ("Translating into the future") for possible ideas.

I hope these arrangements will suit everyone and to see you all out in force next week!

Best wishes,
Kerstin

Kerstin & Oliver: Alternative venue for future meetings Jan 22, 2010

I contacted them a while ago and they were willing to rent out their upstairs room for free. The location is central, yet rather hidden, but the pub is friendly and has a good selection of beverages. It used to be one of my locals in my pre-freelance days...

Could be worth trying Jan 22, 2010

Thanks for that Katharina. It's very near the pub we used on 28 November. I suppose if could be worth trying next month, depending on what we think of the one Kerstin found for next week (but look at these reviews: http://www.viewlondon.co.uk/pubsandbars/the-green-man-userreview-14795.html ).

Wow, that's just down the road from me, but I've never actually been in there! Funny that, you grow up somewhere and yet there's places you've never been into. Maybe I should slip in there tomorrow for a half of ale between work sessions and make a reporticon_wink.gif

@ Katharina - how's life as a mum?
