The Christian Street Community Centre, on Christian Street (near Aldgate East tube station). This venue is a nightmare to find on Google and gives up several wrong locations, so please search for Rope Walk Gardens on Christian Street – the venue is right next to this.

It’s about 10 minutes walk from Aldgate East or Whitechapel tube stations, or 5 minutes from Shadwell DLR/Overground station, or walkable from Liverpool Street.

Six 9-round games of Countdown in the Lincoln table style – see picture below.
After six games, the top two players will play each other in the Grand Final.
