Pico Balloon Launch

At the end of the conference we will be launching some foil Pico Balloons from Wormwood Scrubs - just 10mins walk up the road. Helium will be available if you want to bring your own. We will be limiting flights to the foil balloon variety (not the larger latex balloons).

This launch has been cancelled due to the wind direction taking the flight south - cutting through the Heathrow approach.
