DANDA EVENTS - Click here for Venues and Contact Details
Kindly note that the Events below have been organised for DANDA Members and their Carers / Family Members / Associate Members only unless indicated on individual entries. If you are a non-member but wish to attend a Members’ only event, please contact us in advance using the details on the Venue and Contacts page. As a Charity, DANDA is unable to finance events where a charge is incurred, therefore, Members should be able to pay for the event when required. Also, if presentation slides for our talks are made available either before or after the talk, these will be available for download and printing from the London Members Meeting Folder, for all Members to access – DANDA is no longer able to print off copies in advance of a talk.
Regular Monthly Meetings for London Group Members:
Kindly note that all Members can attend the London Group Events.
First Tuesday of every month: Young DANDA at the Knights Templar Pub (Click here for Venue and Contacts Details) – EXCEPT JANUARY 2013 – SECOND TUESDAY (JANUARY 8) due to Bank Holiday on the first Tuesday. Kindly note change of venue from January 2013 – The Cartoonist Pub has closed down. Young DANDA Pub Night Meetings are under review – if attendance remains low, as has been in 2012, Young DANDA will fold, therefore, it will be in the interests for those who would like to see this meeting continue throughout 2013 to attend on a more regular basis.
Third Week of every month (Except December): Members Meeting 7 pm PROMPT at University College London (UCL), Euston (Click here for Venue and Contacts Details). Kindly note that the talk will commence promptly at 7:00 pm, therefore, we would appreciate if those who want to attend, would arrive before 7:00 pm, to avoid interrupting the speaker. Those who arrive late will have to wait until the break. For Security reasons, UCL have requested that on arrival, ALL MEMBERS MUST report to the Security Officer and/or Claire or Neil at Reception and sign in. See Monthly Events below for further details – the date may vary due to room availability at University College London
Fourth Tuesday of every month: DANDA Members’ Pub Night at The Knights Templar Pub (Click here for Venue and Contacts Details) – EXCEPT DECEMBER 2013 – THIRD TUESDAY (DECEMBER 17) due to Christmas

DANDA Events - as at 30 December 2012
Future Monthly Members’ Meetings for London Group Members: Kindly note that the due to refurbishment at Kaplan College, London Bridge, London Group Monthly Members’ meetings will now be held at University College London, Euston. There is no Members Meeting in December 2012 due to Christmas Break. Please check Website for next meeting - The next meeting will be held in April 2013, due to the National Charity closing and DANDA London being created.
January to April 2013:
As many Members are aware, the National Charity currently operating as DANDA is closing in the New Year. A New Group, DANDA London, will be created, to continue the aims and objectives of the existing charity organisation. Although there is a name change, Members (as well as those Members whose Membership has expired) from the existing National Charity are welcome to join or transfer to the new group.
As we are in a transitional period, Members Events, such as London Members Talks and day trips have had to be suspended until April 2013. However, the pub night social meetings (Young DANDA and the Main DANDA pub nights) will continue.
