Evening events happening throughout the conference

An important part of any conference is being able to network with other delegates and GopherCon UK is no exception. We will be arranging three social events - before, during and after the conference.

Wednesday August 1st 2018 from 6pm-11pm

Pre-Conference Social

We kick off the conference on Wednesday with a night at the pub, featuring Jimena Notari, Eggya Chiquita and Dominic Green, organisers of Women Who Go and Go London User Group. We'll be meeting at Finch's Pub from 6pm til close for drinks, snacks and a chance to meet other delegates before the conference starts. The social will also include a fun networking game where you can win prizes including Gopher themed stickers, pint glasses, and playing cards.

Mid-Conference Social
Summer Garden Party

Head outside to the Brewery courtyard right after talks finish and join us in the marquee for some food, drinks and networking with fellow gophers. There will be BBQ with options including smoked cheeseburgers, potato salad and summer berry pudding, and a few free drinks followed by a cash bar.

Friday August 3rd 2018 from 5pm-10pm

Post-Conference Social
Jazz Lounge & Cinema

The conference proper may be wrapping up, but the fun isn't as we head down into the Pasteur, Sample, and Cutting rooms (located downstairs in The Brewery) for our final social event. Enjoy a couple free drinks, a live jazz duo, and a pair of movies that are sure to delight.

Showtimes are as follows:

  • Back to the Future 6pm
