July meetup summer BBQ by the sea!

NEW UPDATE!! THE BBQ is on! The weather is holding out so the BBQ will go ahead! Walk down to the sea front and walk towards the West Pier (this burnt out shell of a pier!!). Walk just past it and you'll see our big BBQ set with bright yellow balloons!


Any problems finding us please call[masked]



We have a very special July meetup for you. We're inviting you all to escape the smog and overcrowded tube trains of London and join us in Brighton for the evening!


We've teamed up with Brighton based Propellernet and the Thistle Hotel Brighton to offer you a special seaside BBQ networking event. Jump on the train (or in the car) and join us for a chance to meet other great travel bloggers in the meetup group and some great PR companies looking to work with travel bloggers. It's a chance to mingle, share travel blogging experiences, make new connections and have a burger or two!


Complimentary rooms at the Thistle Hotel

If you're a travel blogger who'd like to come down to this event and stay in Brighton overnight then we have something just for you! The Thistle Brighton is right on the sea front and is offering 4 complimentary rooms for bloggers, with additional rooms at press rates. if you're looking to write more content for your blog and experience one of Brighton's biggest and best hotels then get in touch with us directly and we'll arrange for a complimentary room at the Thistle. Rooms are on a first come first serve basis so let us know ASAP.


We're prepared!

We know the English weather can be unpredictable at the best of times so we'll be prepared whatever the weather. We'll announce the venue for the event nearer the time. Rest assured it will be in central Brighton just a short walk from the train station.


Some exciting news

We'll also be announcing some changes to our meetups that will make future meetups  bigger and better.



Please RSVP as soon as you can and do let us know if you're a vegetarian too! If you're coming down by train there's lots of trains every 20 minutes or so from both London Bridge and London Victoria. With late trains back too!


Brighton is famous for it's beautiful pebble beach!

So what better place to enjoy the sunshine and great views of Brighton than from the beach! We'll be meeting on the beach from 6:30pm onwards where we'll have a fantastic free BBQ with free drinks too, all thanks to the great guys at Propellernet PR. We'll make sure it's easy to find us. Just jump on a train (or drive down) to Brighton and head straight to the beach. We'll have more info on our exact location very soon.


After BBQ drinks in a Penthouse Suite!

From around 8:30pm onwards we'll be moving the event to a very special location. The Penthouse Suite of the Thistle Hotel Brighton. Join us for more drinks from one of the best views you'll ever see in Brighton. Network with fellow bloggers and PR in the comfortable surroundings of the penthouse suite, hang out on the roof top terrace and enjoy views of the sea front as the sun sets. What better way to host a meetup!?


See you in Brighton!

    I really enjoyed the event and met lots of lovely people. I found the group discussion around PRs and bloggers working together especially useful. Hope to see lots of the new faces I met again soon!

    The weather didn't defeat us! After a day of changing weather from one minute to the next we still managed to have our very impressive BBQ on the beach with tables, chairs and a huge BBQ set! Propellernet did an excellent job of hosting the event and we had a tour of the Thistle Hotel before lots of drinks and chats with beautiful views of Brighton in the Penthouse Suite. Thanks to everyone that came! Your feedback is appreciated!
