In-person small business networking event at Brighton Gin in Brighton, Sussex.

In person event details

Join us for a friendly, in-person business networking event in Brighton and meet with other local small businesses, hosted by Gary Salters.

This is your chance to network, collaborate, promote your services and support each other over a drink at Brighton Gin, the South Coast's first distillery. Founder and CEO, Kathy Caton, will be hosting the event and will be talking about making the ethically and sustainably produced, multiple award-winning gin, building an ethical business, women in business, resilience, and the importance of community.

Kathy is a Brighton obsessive with a passion for good food, booze, arts, culture and community. When not making gin and/or waxing lyrical about it, she can be found broadcasting and podcasting on all things LGBTQ+ on BBC Local Radio across the South and South East, and nationwide on BBC Sounds.

You will receive a welcome gin drink on arrival, with mini sausage rolls from local business, This Little Piggy. Afterwards there will be a gin bar with local beers from Unbarred. Soft drinks will also be available.
