Summer party in London – tonight

Party time, time runs out, everybody’s infected invited1

It’s a very last minute announcement, but the next meeting of the RISC OS User Group of London (ROUGOL) is tonight (Monday, 19th August, from 7:45pm) and because it’s one of those rare meetings for the group where there is no formal speaker, the evening is being billed as a summer party.

If you plan to attend, though, don’t bother putting on your dancing shoes. In this case “party” actually means sitting down with a drink and a bite to eat, and having general discussions on the subject of RISC OS. That doesn’t mean things won’t get exciting, though, because attendees are free to bring along any projects they’re working on to show off to the group, or anything they’re having problems with in order to seek a little help, and so on.

So where should you be if you don’t want to miss the excitement?

The Blue-Eyed Maid (upstairs in the restaurant),
173 Borough High Street,
SE1 1HR.

There is no admission fee, and the Blue-Eyed Maid is conveniently located between Borough and London Bridge tube stations – just a short walk from either. If you need any help finding the place, or any other assistance or information, ROUGOL can be contacted by email, by telephone on 07970 211 629, or via Twitter.

Looking ahead to the next meeting, which will take place on Monday, 16th September, Rob Sprowson will be putting in an appearance on behalf of Elesar Ltd, to reveal a mystery new product.

The weekend immediately after, there is another event at which ROUGOL is lending a helping hand – Acorn World, on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd of September, at the Centre for Computing History in Cambridge.

And a few days over a month later, it’s the RISC OS London Show 2019, one of the main events in the RISC OS Calendar – so don’t forget to set aside Saturday, 26th October in your diaries, and get ready to head for the St Giles Hotel, Feltham.


  1. This is a line from a Gary Numan song called “From Russia Infected” – it’s probably a little too obscure to be recognised by most people likely to be reading this, but because it was a fairly last minute announcement, the ‘time runs out’ part leaped out at me as fitting.
