Surrey LUG Bring-A-Box 23rd November 2013

We have regular sessions each month. Bring a 'box', bring a notebook, bring anything that might run Linux, or just bring yourself and enjoy socialising/learning/teaching or simply chilling out!

This month's meeting is at the Red Hat offices in Farnborough, Hampshire. Our thanks to Dominic Cleal for hosting us. Note that it is on 23rd November, rather than the usual 'second Saturday'.


New members are very welcome. We're not a cliquey bunch, so you won't feel out of place! Usually between 10 and 30 people come along. 

To get the flavour of some typical meetings, take a look at our BringABoxArchive.


The next meeting is scheduled for...  

  • Time: 11am - 5pm

On arrival, either press the buzzer to be let in by the security guard or, if no guard is present, call the host's contact number that will be displayed on the door. Once inside, the meeting is taking place on the third floor - take the lift to that floor and turn left or take the stairs and turn right.
