It’s happening! After having hosted successful Christmas parties over the last two years, we’re finally doing a Summer Party.
We are currently in the process of finalising everything but we can announce that we will be taking over The Glasshouse room at the Holiday Inn Camden Lock. Because, let’s be honest, you haven’t been to Camden Market for years!
The Glasshouse is a very bright room with a huge window front facing the canal – it is the ground floor space on the photo above. It is a lovely spot for a Summer event.
The venue stretches over two floors with its own private bar and has a capacity of 250. This means we can host 100 more readers than at our Christmas parties. We are paying for security so we can also open the doors to an outside area by the water. Not sure why we need a security guard for this but that’s the hotel rule!
We want our Summer party to be a more casual event. There won’t be any (major) speeches and there won’t be a lengthy raffle.
There will be a full cash bar with normal Camden prices, which means £5ish for a beer, and a couple of sitting areas.
Because we need to ensure that people who ask for tickets turn up, we will be charging for tickets.
The party will be 6pm to 8pm on Tuesday 3rd July. The bar will remain open for a while after 8pm for anyone who wants to stay longer, and of course there are no shortage of bars and restaurants in Camden if you want to carry on your evening elsewhere.
Tickets are £10 including VAT and will go on sale later this week. This is half of the price of the Christmas party but we are not including any drinks this time. If we can line up a headline sponsor in the next week or so then that may change ….
We will publish more details in another article in a couple of days.
There will be 250 tickets available. We hope that the larger venue will give more readers the chance to join us and also slow down the ticket sale process so they don’t all go in two minutes as at Christmas …..
We hope that you can come along to meet Rob and myself and to talk miles, points, credit cards and travel with other readers. Bring a friend or come by yourself – you won’t struggle to find someone to share your stories with.
