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.

October 2014
We had a great meeting last night. There were four new members and a lot of the regulars. First new person to arrive was Cecilia, who lives locally. Next was Richard, who was visiting from France. Shortly after Robin arrived. He came all the way from a remote part of Australia, where there are no Pratchett fans at all. Finally James B. arrived later on and, as promised, brought his new wife Christina. She showed us all the wedding photos including cute spider and cat cakes.
I had a lot of discussion with Richard and Robin about Discworld movies, diaries and other memorabilia that is not easy to get abroad. Robin was overwhelmed by the geekiness and made nervous by the fact that he got all the references.
There was no quiz as Mark wasn't there but I did bring a prize since we have been sorting out our stuff. Alex G. was declared winner because he was the only person who wanted a Darth Vader model, which contained shower gel. The meeting ended with a lot of us quoting Blackadder.We walked back to Paddington Station with Alex and later spotted him on the opposite platform cuddling and carressing Darth Vader.
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.
