It’s a brand new year, so time for a brand new #MetaBeers, at a brand new venue: The Marlborough Arms, Torrington Place tomorrow from 6:30pm for a 7pm start. We’ll hear ALL YOUR TV SECRETS. Was there nothing better to do at Christmas? There will be all the usual drinks and snacks (see the last of 2014), and fabulous sweet treats, too. Plus a new item on the schedule—a pub quiz! With pub quiz prizes! See you there 😉
how does it work?
You sign up to #MetaBeers, RSVP the invite, and come along with all the +1s you like. We prepare talks, buy pints & treats, then we all gather round and make merry. We’re having as many 5 minute talks (and quizes, it turns out) as needed to cover the theme, but never more than 1 hour. If you’d like a spot (this month, in February, etc.) on the running order, do get in touch*.
- 14 January 2015 – ALL YOUR TV SECRETS was there nothing better to do at Christmas?
- Chris – lies and ratings and secrets about ratings
- Luke – why I wasn’t watching TV this Christmas
- Rita – the evolution of TV over Christmas in Portugal
- AND YOU?
- Mirona – my Christmas web TV secrets
- Tom – the Christmas TV pub quiz!
Ideally #MetaBeers speakers arrive at the pub a bit earlier to get their ducks in order and score a fresh pint. Talks can be up to 5 minutes and take any form conceivable, as long as they stay short, casual and engaging. We’ve written in detail about how it works, and as always, there’s a summary of the November edition, TV Everywhere, including the best talk of the evening, Garry‘s. This time, there’s also a summary of all the #MetaBeers of all of 2014!
#MetaBeers are our monthly get together with colleagues, friends, partners, and likeminded folks. They are spoken in plain English, and are a fun night out where we all expand our views as we consume the best ales and finger foods an English pub has to offer.
Join us at the Marlborough Arms, 36 Torrington Place on Wednesday January 14 from 6:30pm for talks at 7pm, and a new item on the agenda! The earlier the better, especially if you plan to talk. Either way, we can’t wait to hear your thoughts on All Your TV Secrets, so sign up to our #MetaBeers for the quickest way to RSVP.
