That’s right, dear friends. National Freelancers Day 2012 is right around the corner, and once again we’re putting together a knees-up of note with our parent company Crunch on November 22nd.
After the roaring success of last year’s event, held at The Terraces in Brighton, we’re returning there again with every intention of making our party bigger and better.
We’re not alone this year though – we’ll also be joined by the printing experts from MOO (who will be giving away a £150 voucher for their wares on the night), plus other freelancers-friendly organisations such as UC Finance, Elevate and Wired Sussex. We’ll all be throwing some cash behind the bar, so the drinks will be free until our tab runs out.
Last year we had around 100 freelancers turn out (despite the terrible weather) to drink the night away with us, and this year we’re hoping for even more! The event caused quite the buzz, and was featured on local radio and in national press.
This year we’re also giving away a £100 Amazon voucher here on the site – just complete our quick survey to win!
The party will be at The Terraces on Thursday 22nd November. We’re aiming to start at around 7.30pm, so plan to turn up fashionably late at around 8pm. We’ll be providing nibbles and drinks until our tab runs out, so turn up relatively promptly to avoid disappointment.
We’ll be holding a raffle to win a £150 MOO voucher (among other things – final prizes to be confirmed!), so bring business cards to throw in the bowl. The party will be open to everyone, all we ask is you register your attendance so we know what kind of numbers to expect.
Oh crap, I need new business cards!
Don’t worry, padre! MOO have given us a very special offer, just for National Freelancers Day! Not only will you get your business cards free, but you’ll only have to pay £2.50 shipping, and they’ll be waiting for you at the event – how’s that for convenience?
If you can’t make it to Brighton
There are plenty more National Freelancers Day events going on around the country, including the PCG’s own event in London on Wednesday 21st.
