The workshop reception will take place at the Union Bar, which is is located in The Beit Quad map at the north end of the campus, right next to the Royal Albert Hall. We will walk there together right after the end of the first workshop day, but if you need to get there by yourself, follow the signs for the Royal Albert Hall. The Beit Quad’s entrance is a small tunnel leading into a inner courtyard, situated just after the steps towards the Royal Albert Hall and before the pedestrian crossing. After reaching the inner courtyard, go towards the building opposite the entrance, then turn right and go past the tables outside. The entrance to The Union Bar is at the corner. Note that The Union Bar is an old looking pub, and not the modern student union bar right next to it.
