It’s time for the Birmingham tech pub crawl! Saturday 29th December 2018.
This is called a pub crawl, but it’s really an excuse to get together, hang out, have a couple of drinks — alcoholic or not, that’s entirely up to you and there’s no pressure — in various places around the Jewellery Quarter. Get away from the turkey and chill out and meet people. Bring your family and your friends along. Pop in for an hour while you’re in town and say hello, or show up at 12 noon and still be there at midnight, it’s up to you. Lots of people come at various points during the day, and it’s all very friendly, so if you don’t think you know anyone, or you’re on your own, that’s not a problem. Come, chat to people, have a drink, have a laugh. The agenda this year is, roughly, six different places and a couple of hours in each, so we move around a bit, but it’s all in the Jewellery Quarter so there’s not a lot of walking. If you’re feeling unsure do feel free to ping me — @sil on Twitter — and I can tell you where we are, and I’ll try to keep things updated during the day. Everyone is welcome, and everyone is invited.
A rough agenda:
- The Lord Clifden, 12pm - 2pm (they do food if you fancy lunch)
- The Church, 2pm - 4pm
- 1000 Trades, 4pm - 6pm
- The Rose Villa Tavern, 6pm - 8pm (probably grab a bite to eat here if we haven’t already)
- The Queen’s Arms, 8pm - 10pm
- The Actress and Bishop, 10pm - whenever
