Looking for something completely different? Well, nestled behind the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street, you'll find Facebook's HQ.

We are collaborating with the social media giant, Facebook on the 26th November. Facebook's mission is to connect the world, bringing the world closer together.

You can expect world renowned brands, market leading guest speakers and a networking experience like no other. The evening will give those willing to discuss openly a chance to voice their opinion on a range of topics. We will be supplying complimentary food, drinks and an opportunity to meet like-minded individuals, who all share the same passion of celebrating and empowering women in technology. ALL are welcome.

Entrances from the main roads are on Newman street and from Rathbone place into the courtyard. The event will be entered from secondary entrance inside the courtyard on the Newman street side.
