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 21st 2019 from 6pm-9pm

Pre-Conference Event
Live Recording of the Go Time Podcast

Welcome drinks sponsored by JFrog

We're teaming up with the London Gophers to bring you a live recording of the Go Time Podcast! We'll welcome Go Time hosts Mark Bates and Mat Ryer, along with 3 special guests (TBC), who will be talking about all things Go. Tooling, conferences, community, even Go 2.0 ... have your say on what you would like in this amazing event by tweeting @gotimefm with hashtag #isitgopherconyet.

It all starts on Wednesday, 21st August at 6pm at the Brewery. Join us for a live podcast, as well as free food, drinks and opportunities to chat with your fellow Gophers. Also, don't forget that this is a free community event, so don't worry if you didn't manage to get a ticket to the main conference. You can still sign up and attend. The podcast will run for about an hour, with the rest of the time left for networking and refreshments. You won't want to miss this unique event!

Post-Conference Social
Party at The Brewery!

The conference is over but the fun isn't! Join us in the King George room for a party complete with drinks, snacks, games, and live music. We'll be welcoming London's own The Hoops to serenade us with their repertoire of crowd pleasers and toe tappers, so put on your dancing shoes and get ready to sing along. If competitive fun is more your style you can take a shot at table tennis, table football and air hockey. There will also be quieter spaces if you'd like to chat with your fellow delegates before bidding farewell. Help us send off GopherCon UK 2019 in style!

Saturday August 24th 2019 - Departing London at 10am

Saturday Field Trip
Bletchley Park

Before we all bid farewell, join us for one more adventure! Journey to Bletchley Park for an insightful visit to the home of the codebreakers and the enigma machine. With the group rate, tickets are £15.50 per person, and that includes discounted entry to the park and discount on pre-booked guidebooks. You can find more info on Bletchley Park here, and tickets are available here*.

We've hired a coach to take us to and fro as well. The coach will depart from The Brewery at 10:00am and arrive at Bletchley Park around noon. At 4:00pm the coach will depart from the park and return us all to The Brewery. If you decide to join us on the coach please be punctual so we can maximize everyone's time and enjoyment. *Please note that all ticket sales for Bletchley Park are final.
