DeskLodge Summer Social Recap!

Festival Vibes at the DeskLodge End of the Summer party

It’s that time of year again, when they nights draw in and the temperatures drop but our DeskLodger’s have been working hard and are ready to party!

The DeskLodge ‘End of the Summer Social’ is becoming an annual event where we celebrate a productive year with lots of fun, drinks, great people and this year……a fancy dress box.

Each year we choose a fun theme, last year it was a Hawaiian Surf vibe and this year it was all about Festival style!

DeskLodger’s embraced the festival vibes and got glittered up by Bristol’s finest festival glitterati crew The Fashpack which got everyone in the mood to take advantage of that fun-filled fancy dress box that had been flung open in our festival style, decorated Oak Tree space.

The drinks were flowing and the DeskLodgers paraded about in an array of psychedelic lycra garms, kimonos, oversized pantomime dame dresses and Nacho Libre outfits, networking and meeting new friends.

The DeskLodge socials give our members a chance to meet and socialise with new people that they wouldn’t necessarily have in their friendship groups outside of work. Our socials are inclusive and we have had people collaborate and even move in together following meetings at our DeskLodge socials, it’s not just about the drinks…..although they do flow rather well!

This was a busy week at DeskLodge Bristol as we had just announced the winners of our DeskLodge Gromit Challenge and took the opportunity, whilst we had a gathering of DeskLodgers, to present the awards to the winners.

Just as we were considering moving on from the Oak Tree space to pub crawl Bristol’s King Street, a surprise six rails of extra fancy dress arrived courtesy of a very excited, Tom Ball, (who had purchased them from a fancy dress shop that day!) which instantly attracted the, by now, very merry DeskLodgers.

With new outfits ranging from Sherlock Holmes, Austin Powers, Peppa Pig and the Pink Ladies from Grease, you can add an extra hour of dressing up in before we finally got on with the Kings Street pub crawl!

It was an amazing night had by all and the DeskLodge End of the Summer pub crawl is always legendary, we are so happy with how many DeskLodger’s got involved this year and would like too thanks them for being totally amazing!

For those of you interested in attending a future DeskLodge Social, all you need to do is be a member of DeskLodge and join us on the last Thursday or every month. The next DeskLodge Social will be on Thursday 25th October, and by our calculations, that means it must be a DeskLodge Halloween special? Why not!
