#lab12tweetup – all you need to know and more


We were going to hold this year’s tweet-up – co-hosted by Political Scrapbook – in Manchester Town Hall, but we’ve decided on a change of venue. Ignore the ad in the conference fringe guide for the Political Scrapbook party. Well, ignore the venue. Same time, different place!

Get on down to Manchester’s Sandinista bar, on Wednesday 3rd October from 7.30pm till late.

It’s at 2 Old Bank Street Manchester, M2 7PF, just off St Ann’s Square (basically just head towards Town Hall from the conference centre and carry on a little bit). If you go along St Ann Street it’s a little side road by Starbucks.

Venue: http://www.manchesterbars.com/sandinista.htm
Location: http://tinyurl.com/MP27PF

You don’t need a ticket or a conference pass, but those who can’t prove their Twitter credentials may be forced to sign up and tweet on the spot.

We’ll have Tom Watson MP on DJ-ing duties – he’s dusting down those Clash singles right now – and Manchester music legend John Robb on the late shift, as well as a set by David Prescott based on the 1986 GMEX Ten Years of Punk show (I was there!)

There is disabled access on the ground floor. We have half of it reserved all night, as well as all the basement (which unfortunately doesn’t have access as it’s downstairs). In theory we can stay there till 3am… There will be a free drink for early arrivals and then the usual pay bar.

The bar has wifi. Which I am hoping will work!

Spread the word comrades!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
