Our meetings – second Saturday

Meeting Schedule:

Mark your calendars for our upcoming meetings on the following dates:

  • 11 May

Our meetings kick off from 7:30 PM onwards. Whether you prefer to arrive early or join us a bit later, you’ll find a warm and welcoming atmosphere awaiting you. We understand that schedules can be busy, so feel free to drop by whenever suits you best.


Our meetings take place at The Oval Tavern, conveniently located at 131 Oval Road, Croydon, CR0 6BR. This cozy and friendly venue exudes a real community atmosphere, with its unique furniture and a charming walled garden. We typically reserve a table inside the main room at the front of the pub. When the weather permits, you might find us enjoying the outdoors in the garden area.

Informal Atmosphere:

TransPALS meetings are designed to be informal, providing a relaxed environment for you to catch up with old friends and make new ones. We don’t have any structured talks or formal events during our gatherings. Instead, we focus on fostering connections, sharing stories, and finding support within our wonderful community.

Food and Refreshments:

To satisfy your taste buds, The Oval Tavern offers a delightful selection of home-cooked food available for purchase at the bar. Indulge in delicious meals while enjoying the company of fellow TransPALS. Of course, if you prefer a refreshing drink, the pub’s well-stocked bar is at your disposal.

Join us at TransPALS Monthly Meetings at The Oval Tavern, where you’ll find a welcoming community, supportive conversations, and the opportunity to form lasting friendships. We look forward to seeing you there!
