I've enjoyed lunching with other LGBTIQ people at previous LCAs, and I hadn't seen anybody make any noises about it this year, so I'll stick my hand up and make some executive decisions.  Last time I was at LCA, the success of lunch meant it had a few repeats during the week :)
  
If you are arriving at your accommodation outside of their regular reception hours, please leave your details here so we can organise out-of-hours reception.

I've enjoyed lunching with other LGBTIQ people at previous LCAs, and I hadn't seen anybody make any noises about it this year, so I'll stick my hand up and make some executive decisions. Last time I was at LCA, the success of lunch meant it had a few repeats during the week :)
