Last Friday Club

LastFridayClub - cover

What is the Last Friday Club? 

A FREE breakfast meeting on the last Friday of each month. Started in 2016 by me, Debbie Ford, and Emily Perry of South Coast HR.

Who is it aimed at?


  • Freelancers – professional services, digital, creatives, writers etc
  • Independent business owners or sole traders/entrepreneurs –  for example, if you have a shop or have a pop-up business

Anyone who could benefit from meeting others like themselves to share their ideas, skills and experience to help others grow and develop.

How does it work?

We want to offer something a little more informal than perhaps other local business meetings you’ve attended in the past. We want you to come away from each get together with renewed vigour and purpose for your business by benefitting from the experience of others or just having a second pair of eyes on what you’re currently working on; a different perspective.

We typically have upwards of 20 attendees at each meeting, from varying backgrounds, so you’ll be sure to fit in or find someone/something of interest.

When is the next meetup? 

It’s the summer season, so we make the most of some of our best independent, outdoor, venues.

  • Friday 28th July – Pallant Restaurant and Cafe (at Pallant Gallery) – from 9am

Book online via Eventbrite – tickets are FREE.  New members always welcome.

Next meetups:

  • Friday 25th August – Draper’s Yard, The Hornet

Keep up to date via Facebook and Twitter
