Join us each month for BDF Third Thursday 🥳

A monthly gathering to connect, to think, to drink and to build a better city.

Following the success of BDF2019's "Third Thursday" event, we're super-excited to let you know that we will be carrying on our Third Thursday get-togethers every month ... all the way up to BDF2020!

If you would like to come along, please add yourself to the list - so we can keep you informed.

Third Thursday

What is it?

Casual, friendly, open & thought provoking..

Each Third Thursday follows the same rough format:

  • Arrival from 6.30pm - drinks on us.
  • Around 7.30 - 15m lightening talk
  • .. and 7.45 share your thoughts and connect.

No-one really likes networking events, so we're working hard to create an environment where everyone is comfortable.  

Each month our speaker will tell you something that will change your perception.  If you're not into networking, just come for the talk and leave - or find a quiet corner.  That's absolutely fine.

If you would like to share your thoughts then you're in a room of people who have all had their expectations shaken - so chat, debate, drink and enjoy being with other people who like to explore new ideas openly.

We don't announce our speakers - they're a surprise!

When and where?

The only dates you need in your diary this year.

For the time being Third Thursday will be hosted virtually via WhatsApp. We've formed a fantastic online community. Each month, we share a video talk from our secret speaker and then use the group to discuss the topic, ask questions and generally have a good old chat. 

We also have the Third Thursday Handbook. An open resource to capture the discussion and used as a tool for the Third Thursday community to read, edit and expand. 

Here's the dates for your diary.

Our monthly meet wouldn't be able to take place without the fantastic support of our sponsors this year, Bristol+Bath Creative R+D and Invest in Bath. Thank you for helping us to bring together a fantastic community of digital and creative enthusiasts.
