Queers Against Cuts Meetings

In QUAC on 21/05/2012 at 3:51 pm

Vida Walsh Centre

As some of you may know we have had difficulties find a regular venue for a reasonable cost.  After some looking around we have final compromised with the Vida Walsh Centre in Brixton.  While not ideal especially for members in east London it is easy to find, on good transport links, fully accessible, and relatively cheap (£30 a session).  It would also large enough for (small) public meeting of comfortably up to 30 people

Meeting Dates

I have booked the venue for the Fourth Thursday of the month from 7 pm to 9 pm starting from June 2012; namely:

28th June

26rd July

23rd August

27th September

25 October

29 November

However the next meeting of Queers Against The Cuts will be on the fourth Thursday of May:

Thursday

31st May 2012

7 pm to 9 pm

Getting to the Vida Walsh Centre

The Vida Walsh Centre is in Saltoun Road, Brixton and sits on the southern edge of Windrush Square near  (what will be) the Black Cultural Archive Centre . It is a small community centre connected to a small block of flats.  As it is managed by Age UK Lambeth if find a large logo next to the door.
