Extraordinary London Pub Meet

Everyone seems to be coming to London this year, so here’s another extra London pub meet ...

Saturday 8 October 2016
Venue: The Audley, Mount Street, London, W1
Time: 1230 to 1530 hrs

This is an opportunity to welcome our American members Joanne & Tony Edmonds to London. They were very early Society members and have spoken at several conferences. Over the years Joanne & Tony have also brought many groups of students to the UK and included AP on their Oxford and London itineraries.

We will meet at our usual venue, The Audley in Mount Street, which is a few yards from the Grosvenor Chapel (venue for AP’s memorial service) and about 5 minutes walk from Shepherd Market and Hill Street. The pub meet will be the usual informal event: chat, beer, food and a generally convivial time.

As always, just turn up, no need to book. And non-members are always welcome.

For further information please email secretary@anthonypowell.org.
