Organised by Ben Hui of Creative Industries North West (CING), and jointly promoted through Blood, Sweat & Beers; Junior Chamber International, Poetic Republic, Manchester Irish Lawyers Society and Manchester Salon to bring you a big fat festive party.


The party will take place in the back lounge of the Revolution Bar in Parsonage Gardens (behind House of Fraser on Deansgate), and there's a DJ from about 7 pm onwards.

Every 30 minutes, the sleigh bells ring and raffle will be drawn. For raffle, so far we have a round of shots, a few drinks rounds and a few rounds of prizes. So get your party dress ready and book your tickets from CING's Meetup page (the Salon's not using Eventbrite for this one).

About Partner Organisations:

Blood, Sweat & Beers @tweetsbyBSB
Born out of the frustrations and observations of 3 guys (Mike, Nick & Paul) responsible for business development in the Creative sector, Blood Sweat and Beers became the name for their monthly get together where they met up over a pint and discussed their successes and problems. The event then grew in popularity where without realising it contacts in their circles started to attend and do exactly the same thing.


Junior Chamber International @JCIManchester
JCI Manchester is a voluntary personal development organization for young professionals and entrepreneurs aged between 18 and 40. It is a local organization, which is part of the larger global network that is Junior Chamber International (JCI). JCI has over 200, 000 members in 100 countries offering a range of opportunities for you and your business.


Poetic Republic @poeticrepublic
Poetic Republic was born out of Poetica, a completely open writing forum based in Central Library, Manchester, UK. In July 2007 Manchester was galvanised by a festival of original new work across the spectrum of popular culture and art - Manchester International Festival. Yet somehow poetry missed out. This triggered a mission to bring the same sense of vision to the writing and sharing of poetry. The result was the launch of a new kind of poetry competition – the Poetic Republic Poetry Prize - a poetic democracy that fully takes advantage of the possibilities opened up by the web.


Manchester Irish Lawyers Society @MancIrishLawyer
The Manchester Irish Lawyers Society (MILS) was established to provide lawyers with affiliations to Ireland with social and networking opportunities, along with help and support at all stages of their careers. The society is strictly apolitical and membership is open to any member of the legal profession, whether they are expatriates, of Irish ancestry or just have an interest in the Irish culture.


Manchester Salon @ManchesterSalon
The Manchester Salon was inspired after a trip to London for the Battle of Ideas in 2007, and a desire to bring some of the flavour of those very engaging debates to Manchester - at least in between the annual Battle of Ideas festival. The Salon organises discussions that happily move from a problematic or tricky topic in current affairs one month, through a morally difficult subject of scientific research the next, followed by unpicking the tensions between the Arts and demands by Policy wonks. There's no interesting subject the Manchester Salon won't consider.

The aim is to try and capture the essence and nuances of the topics raised in current affairs, and discuss possible solutions. With as many views as there are participants, our conversations never end and are carried on more informally in the bar after the debate.


Cross Promotion: 
Please feel free to cross promote the event on your usual social media, on/offline platform. We are hoping to get as many people from a variety of sectors together on the night as possible.


All the best and Merry Christmas !!
