• 🎄 Christmas Social 🎄

    Zerodegrees Microbrewery Restaurant Bristol

    *** PLEASE READ THE COVID DISCLAIMER BELOW, YOU'LL NEED TO BRING PROOF ***

    Good news everyone! We're back, kind of.
    Obviously it's been a weird couple of years for everyone, so for our first SWmobile in a while we've decided to do a social event with a few drinks. We'll even buy the first one or two 🙂

    See you at Zerodegrees Microbrewery on Wednesday.

    If you have any questions or concerns please do get in touch with one of the organisers.

    For entry, you will need to demonstrate your COVID-19 status by providing either:
    • Proof of a negative NHS Rapid Lateral Flow Test (such test to be taken within 24 hours prior to attending the event at the venue); or
    • Proof of full vaccination - both doses received (with the second at least 14 days prior to the arrival at the venue); or
    • Proof of natural immunity based upon a positive PCR test within 180 days of arrival at the venue (and after the 10-day self-isolation period following the result).

    Please be ready to show this when you arrive!

  • Apple WWDC 2019 - Keynote

    King Street Brew House

    • What we'll do
    Tune in and watch the Apple WWDC keynote and enjoy conversation, and drinks with fellow SWmobile members.

    The keynote starts at 6:00pm which is an hour earlier than our Meetups usually start. (so make sure you're there just before to grab a drink)

    This time we are having a more casual meetup in the King Street Brew house pub. You can purchase food at the Brew House however there will be NO FOOD provided this time, but SWMobile will pick up the tab for a few drinks at the bar instead. (We have a event room booked downstairs)

    So feel free to just come for a drink and socialize/network or watch the full keynote.

    RSVP's will close on the Sunday 2nd.
