Hello, it's Glug tomorrow...
..and it's looking like being one of the best yet. We've sold 547 tickets already and only 153 remain. Please be aware once these sell out we will not be taking money on the door, so once these are gone that's it! :-)
For those of you able to come, here's some important information about the event which you'll need to read. Some details have changed etc.
1. Try and get there early
Due to the fact the nights are closing in a bit (it's now dark at 7.30), the roof will only be open till just before 8pm. Also we've kindly had lots of donations and sponsorship bits we're giving to early attendees. These include:
Free glass of bubbly to the first 200 people
Free food - provided by our sponsor Digital Gurus
More free drinks vouchers - thanks to London Digital Week!
Doors open at 6pm (event finishes at 2am)
2. Talks etc.
In the past people have said the talks have been too late on, this has partly been due to us not wanting to spoil peoples fun on the roof terrace. However because of darkening nights these will now be much earlier. Our first talk / demo by Adobe starts in the basement at 7.30pm and includes a Sneak preview of the next version of Flash Professional & Flash Catalyst.
In fact here's the line up for the basement:
7.30 - 7.50 Adobe http://www.adobe.com/...
8.10 Sanky D&AD vice president http://www.allofus.co...
8.30 Merlin http://www.merlinnati...
8.50 Studio Output http://www.studio-out...
9.10 GDR http://www.gdruk.com/...
10.15 Kids Love Lies http://www.youtube.co...
3. Other features
In typical Glug style we're trying to keep things a bit low key so we hope you'll dip in and out of things as you please. As such lots of things are running at the same time, so here's a list of other bits you might enjoy:
Studio Output with Nick Andrews
We'll be shooting people throughout the night, asking for your favourite song lyrics and creating illustrations on the fly as part of our live Lyrical Theatre project.
T-shirt screen printing by Waste Yourself
We'll be printing 7 ltd edition t-shirts at the event. These can be purchased for £10 each in various sizes or you can also bring a favourite t-shirt and have this printed on for £5. We'll be putting some of these on the blog today as a bit of a taster...
Prints and frames mini exhibit
Canvas prints mini exhibit
Roof (closes at 7.45)
Installation and work examples
Buy them, eat them! :-)
4. Food & Drink
Food will be available from the ground floor from 5pm -7pm. We're giving away 100 of these to early birds but you can also buy these for £5. Here's what it says on the menu 'Delicious bowls of warming chilli prepared with fresh ingredients and served with steamed rice plus a topping of grated cheddar cheese and spicy jalapenos. Choose between a meat and a veggie option'
Drinks are available from the main and basement bars only. Obviously you can take both food and drink upstairs to the roof till it closes.
5. Goodie Bags
You can see these on the blog, they look great.
As we've now sold over 500 tickets we have the names of everyone, who's entitled to get one of these. You can collect them from the door as you come in.
Breakin Bread will be on the decks from 8.30pm in the ground floor, they've also kindly given us a mix cd for every goodie bag. In the basement at 10.15 (ish) Kids Love lies will be performing.
7. Entry & Guestlist
If your on the guest list or have purchases a ticket we will have your name on the door, however please print out a reference number if possible. From 9pm onwards we'll hand this over to the friendly bouncers to sort...
NB: Once this sells out we won't be letting anyone else in on the door as it will get too busy and cramped. So get your ticket now, there are only 153 places left..
I think that's everything, sorry to be so formal. Obviously we'll also have some information up on posters around the venue too. We're looking forward to it, I hope you are too!
