It’s time to celebrate! We invite all of our members, volunteers and supporters to join us in celebrating a huge and very successful year of campaigning at our 2018 Winter Social.

This year, we’re returning to Thirsty and we will be in the back room, ‘The Bunker’, which has been renovated since our last event. Beer and wine can be purchased from the bar and food from the food truck which will be parked outside. (Vegetarian options will be available.) We will provide some mince pies for dessert.

You can join us at any time from 6.30pm, but please ensure you register in advance at so that we can let the venue and food truck know what numbers to expect.

We remind attendees to drink responsibly and to plan their travel home from this event appropriately.
