Glug London x CANNT Festival: The Summer Party

Gluggers, it's that time of the year again... 

Time for a celebration of summer, of creativity, of friends, of the industry and... of you!

Together with CANNT Festival we're once again hosting our infamous Summer Party and we genuinely can't wait to get celebrating! This year we're welcoming all you Gluggers to a new and frigging spectacular venue — Skylight — a rooftop on top of Tobacco Docks. Yup, it's true... Look:

We (the whopping 600 of us) will be partying with the best sunset in town and have opportunities to battle each other in Boule, Croquet and Petanque. Because... why not? ;-) 

On Thursday the 21st of June doors will open at 3pm and for the Gluggers who turns up before 5pm we've got an open bar* this year thanks to our amazing agency partners whom you all will have the opportunity to meet. They're all listed below:


See you there!!??!

Portrait Studio by Getty Images

Getty Images will be bringing in one of their best portrait photographers and set up a studio-like area with all the lights to make you glow so we can hook you up with a smashing new Profile Picture. Perfect if you've not updated your LinkedIn or Facebook (or Tinder...) profile in a while! 

Creative Doodle Briefs by Microsoft Surface UK
logossummerparty02.pngAs y'all know we're huge advocates for anything and everything creative. Usually we talk about creativity, but this time around it's time to get creative. The Microsoft Surface team will be bringing down a whole bunch of Surface Studio + Book Devices and we'll be setting a brief. In short you'll get a set time to respond to a creative brief and we'll collate all artwork and put up across all our social channels.

Afternoon Start 
We kick off at 3pm and will be at Skylight all evening — and we urge everyone to arrive as early as possible to avoid dissappointment re drinks. Early Gluggers also get the best shot at meeting our agencies. Strictly no entry after 7pm.

Croquet, Boule, Petanque
Stay tuned for updates on how to get involved in some friendly play-offs. We'll do a separate announcement with this to everyone who's bought a ticket.

That's it.... That's.... sorta all.
From now and on we strongly suggest you get your hands on some tickets now to avoid the dissappointment a lot of you experienced last year when we sold out.
