We are back with the return of GlugMCR #10 (yes, number 10, can you believe it?!)...
AND, we've got a new venue! Our amazing Glug gang just keeps growing so we've moved to the Fairfield Social Club to house our faithful Gluggers and welcome new faces!
As you may know, here at #GlugMCR we are big fans of creative storytelling, passion, the underdog and seeing ideas come to life. For this reason we bring you great speakers who are willing to share their experiences and inspire a new way of thinking. As always the £7-ticket includes a drink and a slice of pizza...
Make sure to grab a ticket quickly – last couple of times have been sell-outs :-)
See you there!
