Hi, The team at Somerset House have managed to put together a stellar lineup of design talent for this 2 week design festival and Glug have been invited to put on a one off special evening launch event!
HOW TO GET A PLACE > To attend you’ll need to rsvp to the meetup.com (this is FREE to do, but we just need a list of who’s coming) and then buy your tickets direct from the Somerset House box office. By rsvp-ing on the meetup we can also make sure you get one of our giveaway packs on the door.

http://shop.somerseth... As mentioned above you need to rsvp to get on the Glug list but also buy tickets direct from the Somerset House box office separately. We’ve only got 750 tickets to sell for this event, which I know sounds loads of people but having seen the venue and the special lineup of guests (below) we hope you’ll agree this is one NOT to miss.
WHAT’S ON > The event is being held over two floors of this massive and unique exhibition space. Ranging from the quirky backrooms and corridors where you’ll be able to see various workshops, live printing and design exhibits, to the massive central arched corridor where various exhibits and installations will take place. Then there is also a special talks space where we’re inviting some real design legends to talk about 5 things that inspire and inform their work. We’ve then also put together a special bar and sound system for you and will be bringing in some special Glug touches to liven up your evening and help to launch this fantastic festival.
WHO’S DOING WHAT > All of the following artists are exhibiting at the event. *Denotes those also giving talks at this special evening event. Jonathan Barnbrook*

http://hellovonblog.b... NB: Please note we had a couple of technical issues at the last Glug event with the talks. Rest assured this is our priority to make sure this is perfect for you moving forward. In our defence we just weren’t aware how busy this was going to be, but regardless it will be sorted for this event!
ENTERTAINMENT & BOOZE > For this special evening event we’re putting on a special bar and sound system for the evenings entertainment. Also thanks to our friends at Digital Gurus we’ll be giving away free drinks tokens to the first 100 people to rsvp on the meetup.
DATE AND TIMES > The evening will be held on Wednesday 28th April from 7pm – 10.30pm, we’ll probably also be putting on a special after party drinks somewhere nearby which will be free to enter with your ticket. As always, thanks for continuing to support Glug, the events are run not for profit so we put everything we make from the tickets back into making them even better. We hope you’ll agree this one is going to be really special so get in quick to guarantee your places! Thanks Adrian
