Virtual Pub Crawl

Welcome to the ALDCon23 virtual pub crawl!

Simply come along to whichever pub interests you and either begin or join the conversation. You are free to move in and out of pubs as you please.

The pub crawl Zoom rooms don’t have an official host – the space is open for you to socialise with like-minded Learning Developers and other HE professionals.  The pub conversations are not recorded.

Ship Anson

Music Pub

The-Ship-Anson

Ship Anson website

Known for being a haunt for the local “matelot” (naval) community, the Ship Anson also has the joy of karaoke nights every weekend. Visit this pub to discuss all things creative: music, arts, drama etc. Karaoke is optional!

Dolphin

History pub / Reflective space

Dolphin pub

Dolphin website

Dating back to 1716, the Dolphin is Portsmouth’s oldest pub. Why not come along here and reminisce over a pint about “the good old days” … whether or not those are related to higher education!

Spice Island

Travel Pub

Spice Island pub

Spice Island website

The name may derive from its location in the once “spicier” side of Portsmouth, but more likely refers to Portsmouth’s legendary spice trade with the Caribbean from around the 1700s. So come along and ‘trade’ your stories about travel, the great outdoors or what you see over the horizon.

Still and West

Food and drink pub

Still and West pub

Wellington

Free-flow pub

Wellington Pub

This is a quieter pub that proceeds at a more sedate pace of life … so if you don’t want to be too pre-planned and would prefer to take the conversation at your own pace or in an unpredictable direction, then this is the venue for you.
