The Broken Drummers

The Broken Drummers is a London Discworld group. We meet once a month on the first Monday evening. We start at 7pm although there's usually a few who arrive early. Membership is free, just come along. New members and visitors to London welcome. There are also Broken Drummers groups in Australia.

What can you expect?

There is no entry fee. Ever

We welcome anyone and everyone who enjoys Sir Terry's works, or quite likes them or wants to find out more. We have had many visitors from overseas who have enjoyed themselves and made new friends. The discussions do not only concern the works of Sir Terry Pratchett but wander and meander through other genres and authors and also leaping to TV and Film production. We also find time for a quiz. The prize is superb. The chance to set the quiz the following month.

August 2014
I didn't make the meeting but Tim W. kindly sent a report:
"We started the, long awaited, quiz after Ponder and some others left. With the usual know-it-alls absent (except me, of course) hopes were high (as high as they ever get with one of my quizzes!).
We began to the usual groans and moans and were half way through when a wandering Canadian named Morgan arrived, here on route to the Con. We continued then repeated the beginning of the quiz for Morgan to have a go. 5 out of 18 seemed the average (our Canadian friend) doing well, but the winner was our very own Mark with 9! I asked him later if he was writing the next quiz and he said "we'll see".
The rest of the evening past pleasently with discussions of Canadian/British politics and London attractions (if Morgan wasn't totally confused by the "Million and One suggestions of what to do in London in two days", I'd be highly supprised!!) 
The meeting finished with the pub shutting and myself, Mark and Morgan walking back to Edgware Road Station."
The Monkey Puzzle

The Monkey Puzzle is a pub just off Edgware Road. Despite its modern exterior, the Monkey Puzzle is a traditional pub. Staff are friendly and welcoming and the pub serves a range of tasty pub meals. 

The Monkey Puzzle is a few minutes walk from Paddington and Edgware Road stations (although beware the Bakerloo branch of Edgware Road station is a bit further away). The address is 30 Southwick Street, Sussex Gardens, W2 1JQ.

If you enter via the beer garden, you will find us at the opposite end of the pub. If you have any problems, the staff can direct you. For more information and a map see the Monkey Puzzle's website.
