Socials

UPDATE: We're back at The Devereux as our permanant Socials home from July 2019 

Social evenings are held on the third Thursday of each month except in December, which is on the second Thursday. We meet in the upstairs room of a pub called The Devereux at 20 Devereux Court, Temple, London WC2R 3JJ (map).

Socialising starts in the pub from 7pm and the main event kicks off at about 8pm in the upstairs room.

Sometimes we have a purely social evening or a quiz night, but socials are talks and slide or movie presentations by outside speakers or talented club members on climbing and mountaineering related topics.

In November, we have an ever popular annual dinner-dance at the Royal Victoria Hotel in Llanberis, Snowdonia. See the meets programme for more info!

Psycho Vertical- Documentary Film Night
Thu 17 Oct 2019

'It was no longer about the joy of climbing, but simply the struggle of it' Andy Kirkpatrick

Join the LMC for film and pizza night. We will be showing a special screening of the fantastic documentary film by Jen Randall, based on the auto-biography of Andy Kirkpatrick. The film did the rounds at several festivals in 2017 and 2018, but we now have it available to rent for viewing together at the social.

Drinks from 7pm downstairs in the bar. Pizza and film upstairs from 8pm. The documentary is 1 hour 5 minutes long so plenty of time for post film beers to continue.

The pub has a simple food menu of bar snacks only, but we have permission to bring our own food. I am going to order some pizza, so if you want in then please email me on kathryn.sizer@googlemail.com with your dietary requirements, estimated max £10 per person for the pizza. If that doesn't interest you then there are a number of quick eateries nearby and the Devereux crew are more than happy to bring that in.
