Event description

Description

50 misfits, mavericks, and makers walk into a bar. Each person has one minute on stage to introduce themselves.

Fat penguin. The ice breaks. We schmooze.

This is Special Guest, a new monthly event where the audience are the speakers.

Hear from loads of different creative folk in one evening. Shout about your project or share your skills and find a new crew. Come meet your new co-conspirator / muse / mentor / bae. It's show and tell for grown-ups.

The rulez:

  • 60 seconds each. On stage. No slides. Props are allowed.
  • Everyone has the opportunity to introduce themselves. Don't feel like it on the night? That's ok too.
  • There are three rounds of talks, open mic stylee, with short breaks inbetween. Take to the stage whenever feels right.
  • Celebrate each person with rapturous applause. Clap until your hands don't clap no more.
  • Once everyone has introduced themselves, go mingle with your fellow creative comrades.

Want to come? Tickets are a tenner and your first drink is free.


This month's host is Rose Scanlon-Jones: Rose is a Community Manager with a strong sense of purpose when it comes to helping raise the voices of those who cannot be heard. As a specialist in community building, she’s helped aid community growth with brands like General Assembly, Creative Mornings and SheSays.

In her free time, Rose has enrolled in several ‘self-discoveries’ spanning from a counselling qualification, veganism, yoga life and sharing her sober Tinder dating with the world. Since entering sober living she’s been interviewed by Vice and A Girl & Tonic on her insight into alternative dating and ditching drinks for vulnerability.


All welcome.



Doors open at 7pm. Talks start shortly afterwards.
