  6. Venue Changes

    We have some venue changes on the go at the moment.

    Firstly, our last social was in the Old Monkey rather than the Crown and Kettle. This may be an ongoing change, although the Old Monkey isn't available on Thursdays so it may not work in the long run.

    Second, our next speaker event, Dr Jenny Cole's The Case For Gossip, will be at the Briton's Protection rather than the King's Arms. If it goes well then we might be back there for our speaker event in July, as the King's Arms is busy hosting a large chunk of the Greater Manchester Fringe in July.
