*RE getting multiple tickets*

If you're getting tickets for your team/a few people and don't yet know who's definitely coming, just put your own name in multiple times. That'll be perfectly fine at the door.


PR Land, have we* got ANOTHER free bar summer treat for you!

After a brilliantly fun night in late July 2021, who's up for an agenda-less reason to get together?

We have this event in Manchester and another similar summer party happening in London the week before - check it out here!

Whether you work in agency, in-house or freelance, you are welcome! You'll probably want to work in PR and/or media/marketing/adjacent fields (social media, digital etc), but if you don't have a team to come with or are worried you won't know anybody, feel free to invite a friend.

On the night

There'll be a free bar (within reason, you animals - magnums of champagne are off the menu, SORRY), music, and a cash prize or two to be won for... something daft we'll think up before then. 

In short, come along, have a laugh and socialise!

The venue

The Pen & Pencil is a late night New York City-influenced bar - in fact, its owners say it was inspired by an 'infamous spot popular with the original Mad Men'.

With a capacity that'll fit 200 of us, it looks seriously cool, and is in the Northern Quarter. Have a look at the gallery and videos here.

Sponsors and supporters

Our main sponsor is strategic insight agency Opinium. Huge thanks to them, especially my friend Josh and head honcho James.

Our other lovely sponsor is:

--- Freelance PR matchmakers The PR Cavalry. Nigel is the man with a freelance PR network plan!

We'll be tagging them in our social posts - show them some love for keeping us all in drinks by saying hi and following.

Cause we're supporting:

Nobody likes a party where nobody shows up - especially when numbers are limited. Therefore, buying tickets is a must. However, 100% of whatever you pay will go towards the amazing Socially Mobile (after ticketing platform fees - in short, we're not making a penny from this).

Socially Mobile is a 'not-for-profit PR school equipping the workforce of today for the challenges of tomorrow'. 

Its 10 week course delivers free training to those from lower socio-economic backgrounds, as well as under-represented and under-served groups including black, Asian and ethnic minority practitioners, the LGBTQ+ community, women returners and those with disabilities.

Finally - tickets to these have gone very quickly in the past once live, so if you don't want to miss out, get booking!

*Who is 'we'?

We means Radioactive - we are a UK-based consumer agency dedicated to creative work that delivers REAL measurable results.

That's about as promotional as I'll be about us - I've done a few of these in the past when I ran (now Famous Campaigns), and they were always great nights filled with drinks, gossip and something amounting to, but definitely cooler than, networking.

Say hi to us on Twitter @HeyRadioactive, and me @RichLeighPR
