Register now for Preston Tweetup II – it’s free, fun and creative.

The second Preston Tweetup will be held on Monday 27th July 2009 from 8 PM in the Snug area of the New Continental pub, Preston.

We’ll be putting our heads together on the topic of ‘How do we support the arts in Preston?’.

The event is part of the Preston Tringe Festival.


The first Preston Tweetup was held on Tuesday 17th March 2009 at the New Continental in their ‘Snug’ area.

The event is held in association with Stage 9 Marketing the official sponsors.

A tweetup is where people come together, bring along their wi-fi enabled laptop and/or mobile phone and meet other people. People also twitter during the course of the night, so even if you can’t make it you can see what’s happening and contribute, by following #prestontweetup.

The topic discussed was  ‘How can the web can be used in Preston Guild 2012?’ As the last Guild was held in 1992 and back then broadband and widespread laptop ownership was a twinkle in a very rich man’s eye.

You can contribute to the wiki, where ideas from the night can evolve.
