Event Centre

The event centre will be at The Spencer at 237 Lower Richmond Road, Putney SW15 1HJ. Orienteers are asked to be respectful of other patrons of the pub, and must not get changed in the bar area.

The pub is just over ten minutes’ walk from Barnes station on the line from Waterloo via Clapham Junction, and there are lots of buses servicing the area – Transport for London is a great source of alternative routes.
