Our next social starts in the manner we have become accustomed to; 6pm, a beer or two from the bar (10% discount, natch), some good chat (dancing on tables comes after the talks). Then, at 6:30pm David and Ken are our Thinking Aloud guests, followed by Sylvie and Nicola talking about a potential Storyhouse hack.

"I've been in Chester for nearly 4 years and the best people I've met, some of my closest friends, have been met and made thanks to GFN. One of them even took our wedding service."
See you there!
