Further info.

Informally, SM have told me that people tend not to get turned away even if
they do turn up and the meeting is "full".

That's not a guarantee that you can just come along and you'll get in, but
it's worth registering for the waiting list and trying.  If they say no
we'll be in the pub by 8pm anyway.
