Do you enjoy playing bridge? If so, do come along to the Barbican Bridge Club's duplicate evenings, which are held on the first Monday of the month (or second Monday if the first is a Bank Holiday) from 7pm to 10pm. We meet in the Lilac Room, 02 level of Seddon House. New participants are always welcome and for beginners, or less experienced players, one of our members has kindly agreed to conduct lessons. We charge £1 a head to cover cost of cards etc. and this has to be the best value one can get in the Barbican! For further information please ring Karolin Arnott on 020 7588 2668.
