Costs include refreshments and a buffet lunch.

As always we are very pleased to welcome short talks or updates from Members – presentation facilities will be available. Short talks can be on any underground subject, and can last between 5 minutes and 15 minutes. If you would like to present, please contact pcatling@subbrit.org.uk.

Please note our new venue - five minutes walk from Holloway Road tube station on the Piccadilly line; two stops from King's Cross St Pancras. Non-members are very welcome to attend.

Optional Visit to Crossness Pumping Station

An optional, members-only, visit has been arranged to Crossness Pumping Station (SE2 9AQ) between 11:00 and 13:30 on Sunday 26 April - the day after the Spring Meeting.
