The 'official' Saturday night do
Date: 17 July 2010
Time: 18:30 'til late
Venue: The Factory, Fac 251 (Previously Paradise Factory), 112-118 Princess Street, Manchester, M1 7EN.
Entrance is free for WordCamp UK Attendees. The venue has a strict age policy - you must be at least 18 years old to attend. If you are fortunate enough to look younger than that please bring a recognised form of ID - passport, driving license, etc.
As for dress code: It's a city centre venue on a Saturday evening. Please do make some sort of effort. The last thing we want is for people to get turned away at the door for having inappropriate clothing. By inappropriate I am referring to things such as board shorts and flip flops.
For guys, a smart t-shirt, jeans or trousers and a pair of smart trainers and shoes will be perfect. For ladies, well, I've never had an issue in all my years working in bars with a lady wearing inappropriate clothing (please don't be the first :) )
