Come and have fun playing board games whilst listening to old-school music

The Craft Beer Co. Clerkenwell

Hello Old-School Music Lovers, We’re really excited to host our board gaming night; the previous ones were great successes, so come along to another night of fun with the backdrop of your favourite old-school music!! 5 Reasons why you should come to the board gaming night 1. Where else in London are you going to find great people playing board games with the best beats? 2. Professional like-minded people get together, socialise, have fun and make genuine connections. 3. We have a great selection of games our selection includes, Pictionary, Scrabble, Wordwise, Monopoly, Jenga, Chess and many more. 4. There are games for two players upwards, last time our largest game had 12 players, so we’re aiming to beat that. 5. Playing board games is great for brain function as it stimulates areas responsible for complex thought and memory. On the night • The host will greet you and introduce you to other people, so if you’re coming on your own or as a group you will be taken care of, that’s our promise. • When you arrive, let us know what game you want to play and we’ll do our best to make sure that happens. • If you would like to bring your own board game, please feel free to do so, as we know there are lots of great board games out there. • Please order drinks and snacks from downstairs to make sure we can continue to use this venue. • If you would like to order food in from a local eatery, we have a selection of menus that you can choose from, as meals are not served at the venue. Note- please cancel your RSVP if you can’t make it, there are a limited number of spaces, so book early to avoid disappointment. Tickets are only £8.00 Get your tickets by going to: https://board-games-with-old-school-music.eventbrite.co.uk We’re really looking forward to seeing those of you who have attended previous meetups again, and those of you for which it will be your first time.

The Commonwealth Fair 2019

Kensington Town Hall , London

The Commonwealth Fair is organised annually. The Fair is always a special, enjoyable occasion demonstrating the vigour, the diversity and the splendour of the Commonwealth countries. This year the fair will be hosted by the Bangladesh High Commission and will feature crafts, food and music representative of many of the Commonwealth countries. As well as providing a unique opportunity for the public to enjoy the food and entertainment of the participating countries and to obtain their specialized products, the Fair has a more serious aim. This is to raise funds to assist, through the Commonwealth Girls Education Fund, with the secondary education of disadvantaged girls with potential to achieve high academic success in their homelands, thus enabling them to become agents of positive change in their own countries and the world. FOR STALLHOLDERS: Are you interested in showcasing your products at the Fair? Get in touch now for details. https://www.cgefund.org/library/news/events-and-fundraisers/ccl-fair-2019 Entry fee (Adult) £5.00, (Children) £3.00.
