On the fourth Wednesday of the month we host a slideshow at The Old Kings Head, London Bridge, in the upstairs room (ask the bar staff for directions if you can’t find it). Our slideshows are usually by members, although occasionally we have speakers from outside the club. These cover a wide range of climbing and walking topics, from trips our members have been on to lectures by notable climbers and mountaineers. The show starts at 7:30pm and will generally finish about 9:30pm.
We sometimes organize other ad hoc socials, which will be added here once details are known; email notifications will also be sent.
It's time to celebrate the summer with your fellow Rockhoppers! On Saturday 21 July, we will combine two of everyone's favourite activities: Walking (a little bit at least) and drinking (probably a whole lot more….).
We will attack the famous Bermondsey Brewery Mile, which consists of a string of micro-breweries set up in railway arches starting in South Bermondsey and stretching all the way into Tower Bridge.
We will start at Partizan Brewing, at 2pm (nearest station is Surrey Quays or South Bermondsey) and then work our way into Southwark Brewing Co (nearest station is London Bridge) with expected finish around 7pm. Below is an approximate time schedule planned for each brewery, which includes walking time in-between. It would be great to see as many of you as possible for the 2pm start, but obviously you can join at any time/location that suits you!
Various food options will be available along the way, including the epically hip Maltby St street food market.
1. 14.00 Partizan Brewing, 8 Almond Road, London SE16 3LR.
2. 14.45 Eebria Tap Room, 15 Almond Road, London SE16 3LR.
3. 15.30 Brew by Numbers: Arch 79, Enid St, SE16 3RA.
4. 16.15 U Brew: Arches 29-30, 24 Old Jamaica Road, SE16 4AW.
5. 17.00 Bottle Shop: 128 Druid Street, SE1 2HH.
6. 17.45 Anspach & Hobday: 118 Druid Street, SE1 2HH.
7. 18.30 Southwark Brewing Co: 46 Druid Street, SE1 2EZ.
There’s no need to sign up to this event in advance (it’s free other than your beer budget…), but if you join at a later stage than Partizan Brewing you may benefit from either texting or calling Mette or Alex when you’re on your way to get a progress report.
We will do our very best to stick to the schedule, but obviously there are no guarantees! (given that most of the breweries are tiny and/or get busy we will likely need to stretch ourselves out a bit in terms of arriving in any case).
