Just to say I have been to this twice and would recommend it. Firstly from this week it is at a new venue - so purge any cached info you have in the brain.
Wed 14 August (repeating every week)
101 St. Martins Lane (3rd Floor), London, WC2N 4AZ

Finally, the pizzas are excellent -plug for Basilico that are 0far better than the Papa John ones yyou often get a these sort of events. Hopefully they will still be available at the new venue
