Journalism.co.uk social

This is a social for journalists and other news industry professionals.

It will be very informal with no speeches or presentations, just a chance to get together.

It's being organised by Journalism.co.uk, a site that reports on innovations in the digital news space.

We will be in a cordoned off area in the Loft Bar, which is right at the top of The Parcel Yard Pub.

The lovely people at import.io (a data scraping tool for non-coding journalists) are putting some money behind the bar. We have a voucher system in the hope that the free drinks will get shared out a bit (you swap a business card for a drink – so do bring a business card).

Questions? contact Sarah[@]journalism.co.uk.
