ROUGOL logo Welcome to
RISC OS User Group Of London



ROUGOL is a not-for-profit organisation consisting of Acorn/RISC OS computer users in London and the south-east. Our aim is to bring those users together. There is no membership fee and entry to all meetings is free. To find out more, email us.


Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month. Most meetings feature a guest speaker, demonstrating the latest hardware or software, giving tutorials of software both new and old, or simply to kick off discussions on the current hot topic. Entrance is free, so why not come along and say hello?

Next meeting - Monday 16th January 2023 
RISC OS Developments news - Richard Brown and Andrew Rawnsley

For the first meeting of 2023 we will be having a fully hybrid meeting, with both speakers and audience being half online and half in person!

We will be joined in the pub by Richard Brown and on Zoom by Andrew Rawnsley, as the dynamic duo bring us the latest news on RISC OS Developments projects. This will include the Iris web browser, Pinboard2, TCPIP stack, and anything else they have up their sleeves.

They will no doubt also update us on what to expect to see at the RISC OS SouthWest Show which will be taking place on Saturday 25th February 2023.

Not a ROD project, but as an added incentive to come to the pub Richard will be bringing along his Pinebook Pro for everyone to have a play with.
