The Daubeny Lecture Theatre

The Daubeny Lecture Theatre has been the main venue for our weekly meetings for the last few terms, though clashes with another room booking mean that it is unavailable for Trinity 2012.

The Lecture Theatre is a large, open room with a large number of free-standing chairs and, crucially, a projector, large screen, and sound system, which are used for our video meetings. However, there is a strict ban on eating and drinking in the Daubeny Lecture Theatre, so please do not bring any food or drink.

On weeks where we are using the Daubeny, the society gathers outside the Magdalen Porter's Lodge on the east end of the High Street, near Magdalen Bridge. We then proceed over to the Daubeny just before 8pm - however, if you wish to make your own way there, then the route is indicated on the map below, along with written directions.

To reach the Daubeny Building from the main lodge, cross the road towards the botanical gardens and turn right along the High Street. Take the first left turn into Rose Lane, and then turn left again when you reach the first large gate on your left. The building to your right is the Daubeny Building - the entrance is the second glass door on your right (near the far end of the building). The large windows a bit to the right of the door are the windows of the Laboratory - knock on these and someone will come to let you in.
