Description

The Sandpit - Meet the GROOVY Accountants!

It's that time of year again, the cold of winter descends and everyone starts to panic about their taxes. Never fear - the Groovies are here! Our Groovy Accountants are those lovely and friendly people who help creatives with their taxes and financial issues. Come and have a drink with them, get to know them and pick their brains in the safety of the pub.

You can find out more about the Groovies here.

You'll also meet up again with the usual fabulous creative people, including artists and filmmakers, animators and writers, actors and musicians, dancers and designers, freelancers and entrepreneurs, and all of us brave, interesting folk who run businesses big and small in the creative world.

The Sandpit is a not-networking night, designed for people who hate to network. Every other month, creative business people and freelancers meet for drinkies and chit chat in the safe and friendly environment of the pub. It's all the good bits of networking (meeting people, drinking, getting out of the house) without any of the bad parts (awkwardness, pressure to sell, feeling like a dill). Best of all, this is a guaranteed wanker-free environment, and it's free!

We start at 7pm on Wednesday 12th June 2019 downstairs in the Beer Garden at The Bank Hotel in Newtown.

Please come and say hello! It's totally free!

Proudly presented by Creative Plus Business and hosted by Monica, Wendi, Lillie and Steve.

SANDPIT FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Yes, it's at the pub so you'll need to be 18 or over.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Your best bet is public transport, as there are several buses that pass through Newtown and the venue is very close to Newtown Station.

Do I have to be running a creative business?

No, but this is an event designed or creative professionals to get together with like-minded people so we can bitch about our clients/taxes/hatred of networking/and so on. You must be creative-friendly, at least.

What do you mean, wanker-free environment?

This event is about meeting people and having a lovely social experience, it's not about the hard sell or trying to convince people of anything. Bring your business card in case you meet someone cool, but think of this as a chance to meet connections, not clients. If we see you carrying on like a bit of a wanker, you will be quietly reprimanded.

Do I have to pay for my own drinks and food?

Yes - that's the only way we're able to keep the event free.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

You can't bring your own booze and food, you can bring your friends.

See you there!
