Extraordinary London Pub Meet, Saturday 26 June - CANCELLED

We regret that for personal reasons Nick Birns has had to cancel his planned trip to London. The Extraordinary London Pub Meet on 26 June, at which Nick was to lead discussion of What’s Become of Waring is therefore cancelled. We hope to reschedule this meeting for a future date.
