FOSS Talk Live 2016, 6th August Kings Cross

Much like London busses, a second London Linux event has also come along.

FOSS Talk Live 2016 is a free evening of Linux podcasts on Saturday 6th August at The Harrison near Kings Cross. The main event is ticketed, taking place in the basement of the pub and I expect there will be a large public social gathering upstairs in the main bar area.

All of the tickets for the main event have been reserved but I expect that in the time between the four live shows, people will congregate upstairs and that not everyone will go down to watch every show.

So if you are in London on the evening of the 6th August, come along. This isn’t an official GLLUG meet up but there will almost definitely be like minded people there and it should be good fun.

Meetup Thu 28th Jan at the Mulberry Bush pub (near Waterloo station) 6pm

A new year, a new site and a new meetup!

We will be meeting up on the Thursday before FOSDEM – 28th January from 6pm at the Mulbery Bush Pub which is near Waterloo station.

It’s a great chance for anyone who is into Linux and Open Source to have a few drinks and a chat with some like-minded people in a nice informal atmosphere. Anyone and everyone is welcome, so spread the word and bring people along! The pub has the usual selection of drinks and also has a pretty decent menu.


Directions to the Mulberry Bush

Mulberry Bush
89 Upper Ground, Southbank, London, SE1 9PP

Leave Waterloo via the original main entrance in order to head towards the South Bank.  The main entrance is found by turning left after coming through any of the ticket barriers, and is at the far end of the concourse beyond platform 18, on the right next to the lost luggage.  Head through the glass doors and down the stone steps, if you find yourself on a bridge you’ve gone the wrong way, come back and look on your left for the glass doors.

Once down the steps head to your left, cross some zebra crossings and generally follow what is likely to be the main crowd towards the traffic lights to cross York Road.  The aim is to stroll along Sutton Walk, the pedestrian walkway under the blue lattice bridge, towards the South Bank.  Once under the bridge continue straight towards the Royal Festival Hall and you will shortly reach a T-junction with Belvedere road before you actually get to the hall.

Turn right and walk along that road – this is the home straight, except it’s the longest section of the trip!  I’m afraid this part isn’t much to look at, you’ll pass the National Theatre, IBM and ITV and just when you think you’ve gone wrong, the Mulberry Bush will appear on your right hand side.

The route looks like this

The pub looks like this

To find the area that we have reserved, walk to the end of the bar and look to your right. It’s a slightly elevated area called “the stage”.


Hopefully see you there!
