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-11pm

Pre-Conference Social

Wednesday night kicks off the conference with a night at the pub. We'll be meeting at Finch's pub on Finsbury Square (City Road) from 6pm til close for drinks, snacks, and a chance to meet other delegates before the conference starts.

At 7pm we will have a guest speaker present an open ended talk, and we'll have more information on that coming soon. Drinks and chat will then continue after the presentation.

The pre-conference social is open to anyone with an interest in Go.

6pm - Drinks, snacks and chat
7pm - Guest speaker
8pm - More drinks and chat

Mid-Conference Social
Bowling at Brick Lane

Join us for unlimited bowling, karaoke, drinks and more at All Star Lane's Brick Lane location. We've pulled out all the stops and have rented the entire venue, just for us. 9 lanes, professional mixologists, and a retro phone booth, because, why not? This is a social not to be missed!

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!
