Venue
Shepherd Hall
St Thomas’ Hospital
Westminster Bridge Road
London
SE1 7EH

Venue thanks to gav0106 and his team at St Thomas’ Hospital. For those of you who are new they are employed directly by the hospital and 100% of any profits we make from events and bar spend goes straight back to the Trust for projects involving patients and staff, so by supporting this event you will be giving back as well.

Virtual tour of Shepherd Hall

Nearby hotels include: Premier Inn County Hall and York Road, Park Plaza County Hall, Westminster, Riverbank, Hilton Bankside, Doubletree Westminster, Hampton Waterloo, and Marriott County Hall.

Food & Drink
There will be a sofa area and BBQ on the Terrace (as well as seating in the main room). details of food and drink to follow.

The hospital does take credit cards but not Amex due to the charges they impose.

All profits are re-invested into the Trust and the venue is being provided to us completely free of charge.

A trip review of the 2013 DO at the same venue: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/trip...do-2013-a.html (though can't promise it'll be quite as extravagant)

Current sales

Just arrived at all bar one - hope no one minds if I tag along! I was able to leave work early today and join the Do.

I am wearing a grey noise t-shirt and respond to the name of Angelo when you shout it across the bar.

I am flying in from St Mary Axe. My intended +1 will not be attending due to lack of childcare, however I have found a replacement +1 in Ashford, Middlesex.

Just a heads up - traffic in Westminster is atrocious right now because of road diversions. I would strongly recommend avoiding the roads and St. James's Park/Westminster Tube stations and instead alight at Lambeth North on the Bakerloo Line (as suggested earlier).

Please share what apps you use to so quickly and seemlessly swap your +1s ;-)
