Sorry for the delay in getting some of this information out to you. We?ve been a bit flat out recently trying to sort out the London to Brighton event and there?s some exciting news about LDF which we?ll be able to tell you about soon.
However more importantly, here?s the information for the D&AD New Blood Awards Party that we?ve been asked to put on for them. The date for this is Tuesday the 29th of June at Vibe bar on Brick Lane. Weather permitting it looks set to be another fantastic summer bbq event and with their wonderful patio and outdoor space, hopefully we?ll get to enjoy a bit more of the Summer sunshine!
There?s a bit of a twist in theme for this one as we continue the ?notworking? season. Award winners, judges and various agencies attending the New Blood in the afternoon will be coming directly to the event starting at 6pm mixed in with some of their guests and students plus our usual Glug crowd. Here?s what we?ve got lined up so far:BEERS WITH YOUR PEERS >
Instead of the usual talks format we?ve invited 6 brilliant London agencies from various specialisms. Digital, Print, Branding, Animation and Production along to sit on big picnic tables, drink beer and talk to whoever wishes to speak to them.

We?re putting on a special BBQ for this event and offering a free drinks token to everyone that comes along / buys a ticket. We're also going to be running this free booze Notworking idea:How it works?
Everyone that comes into the venue will be given a Glug King or Queen card. They?ll then need to match this up with their pair so Queen of Hearts with King of Hearts etc. You?ll then be able to take these cards to the bar together to get your two free drinks!BUY TICKETS & RSVP HERE >http://www.meetup.com/gluglondon/calendar/13768747/
I?m afraid we only have 600 tickets for this, which sounds like a lot but they are also open friends and colleagues of the New Blood award winners. They are priced at ?5.50 each but as we say do include a free bbq or drinks token within this. Get them here quick to avoid dissapointmentMUSIC & TIMINGS >
The events starts at 6pm and goes on till late. The DJ is our favourite J-squared...
Sound like a lot of fun, we hope you?ll agree
