Hi Everyone,

So as I mentioned on a number of channels (Facebook, Instagram etc) I'm looking to see what potential there is for having a Pen Club outside of London in the South of the UK seeing as many people can't travel into Central London, so it would hopefully be a little more of a local meeting point on a monthly basis.

Here are some suggestions that I've been thinking about...

When?

  • 3rd Saturday of every month

Price?

  • Free to attend, drinks and/or meal is down to you to cover the cost

Location?

  • 5x possible locations across Hampshire and Berkshire
  • These aren't set in stone, but I've looked at hotels with restaurants on that have a decent amount of free parking, good food, beer and soft drinks.  
  • If we can't decide on a single one location then it's possible we could roam between locations every other month if we can find 2 or 3 that suite everyone.
  • You'll find STARS on the map to show location of possible locations.

What do we need to make this happen?

  • Please vote on the form below to show which venues you would be able to attend (3rd Saturday of every month) and we can then choose what would be the most likely venues and whether we need to have a roaming venue where we change it each month if there are no clear winners.

PLEASE NOTE - All the data below will be visible to others wishing to come to the Pen Club with the link at the bottom of the form, do not include email address or full name if you would prefer to keep them private.

This is just so we can see how many people would be looking to attend to see if the venue would be possible.
