Please note that the room does have limited capacity, and that people will hear about this event via the Bishopsgate Institute, as well as via Meetup and via the Philosophy for All website and programme. This means that replying "yes" here does not guarantee you a place. We will always try to fit everyone in, but very occasionally, an event is so popular that we have to turn some people away. If lots of people (say, more than 40) have replied "yes" here, it would be a good idea to turn up reasonably early. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
