I was lucky enough to attend my first blogging event on December 15th over in Hull. The event was the Hey_Bloggers christmas party which was hosted in the Lexington Bar at the Doubletree Hilton
I was a little nervous going but excited. Not only to attend but alo to meet a couple of wonderful people who I have known for sometime via social media.
The train took 3 hours each way but it was well worth it. Unlike most blogging events, with this been a Christmas party there were no workshops but instead party games, icebreakers and lots of socialising and networking. I was lucky enough to meet a lot of bloggers who I hadn’t met before across many different fields.
One of the games we played was called Socialise and Mingle and it was so much fun. It is a great ice breaker style game but also a great one to play with friends and family.
There were lots of things going on but it was such a great atmosphere, it felt quite intimate and not overwhelming which was great for a newbie like myself. It meant I had the opportunity to engage and talk to almost everyone there.
We also got an amazing googie bag which was full of lovely gifts from different brands. So a special thank you goes out to Hugh Rice Jewellers, Metcalfe Skinny, High Maintenance Jewellery, Rock on Ruby, Fenitmans, Wordery, Napoleons Casino, Sienna X and the Hull Truck Theatre.
The event was also catered for by Like Sugar Bakery and the cakes were amazing!
There was a raffle which was raising money for Oscar’s Chance Charity which is an amazing cause. I won two tickets to The Deep Hull, a watch, sweets and a cut and blow dry.
Thank you to Hey_Bloggers for putting on a fantastically Festive Event, I cannot wait for the next one.
Here are some more pictures of my time at the event, featuring the wonderful Sam Alderson and Jennifer Gilmour.
