End of Summer Soirée

Everybody loves the summer months – the good weather and the long nights are just a couple of the reasons why. So, we thought, why not celebrate this wonderful season with an End of Summer Soirée in true London fashion. Pimms, gin, beer and an Elderflower Spritzer will be a few of the summer delights you can enjoy whilst networking with your friends in the industry. Don’t miss out on the DJ spinning some of your favourite summer tunes and, of course, it wouldn’t be a Phacilitate networking event without the food (we are not sorry for being foodies). Who said the end of summer couldn’t be a celebration?

Pub & Pints

Live like a true Londoner and join us for a couple of pints (or gins) in a proper English pub and Phacilitate will even pick up the tab!!
