Our meetings – second Saturday

Our regular meetings in Croydon normally take place on the second Saturday evening of each month. Our July meeting will be on 9 July. Our August meeting will be on 13 August.

In July, we’ll also be attending Croydon Pride. Come and join us at Wandle Park on Saturday 16 July 2022. We’ll have a stall where people can hang out.

NEW VENUE: From June 2022 we’ve been meeting at The Oval Tavern, 131 Oval Road, Croydon, CR0 6BR. A cosy, friendly venue with a real community atmosphere, quirky furniture and a walled garden.

For our July meeting we’ll have a space in the Blue Stage area at the back of the garden.

We welcome all trans adults, however you identify. Our meetings are informal – no talks or events, but a chance to catch up with old friends and new over perhaps a drink or a curry.

Please do not attend if you have the main symptoms of coronavirus. These include a high temperature, a new or continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.
