For My UK Contingent

Ladies! Free Beer! Tonight!

If you’re female and fancy some free beer tonight we’ve got 2 places available for you to go to the Great British Beer Festival on at Earls Court. Arrive at 7.45pm and you’ll be taken on a tour of the festival by leading female beer expert Melissa Cole who’ll be trying to convince you that beer is actually nice. They’ll be supplying you with free entry tickets and beer tokens as well as teaching you all you need to know about beer!

And to my partner Lorenzo… If you’re still in London, you might want to find your way down here!
