Meetings are usually held on the first Monday of every odd month In the current conditions, they are online only, but when some semblance of normality returns, they'll be hosted at The Dock Hub, Brighton and Hove. They will also be broadcast live via the offices of Forbidden Planet in London, where you are also welcome to attend with plans to extend to further locations with the assistance of Solis Digital.
