Come along to our next Social on Tuesday 20 May in King's Cross. 

There'll be no speeches, presentations or dress codes, just a (very informal) chance to meet and chat with other journalists and news industry professionals.

You can also swap your business card for a free drink on the night, kindly sponsored by London College of Communication.

We'll be in a cordoned off area of the Loft Bar, right at the top of The Parcel Yard pub in King's Cross Station, from 6pm until late.

Got any questions? Contact sophie[@]

Hope to see you there!
