Sneak Desklodge House Preview !

Desklodge mince pies

Seems like we’re reaching the end of the party season but we still have a sneaky one up our sleeve for this week.

It’s at the NEW Desklodge House on the 19th Mince Pies and Mulled Wine @ Desklodge House. As we all know Desklodge are the best for culture and inclusion and are asking people to put into the fundraiser for DigiLocal. Digilocal supports around 12 communities, with over 100 kids each week, and nearly 30 industry volunteer mentors. All having fun with tech and encouraging the next generation of high tech innovators!

We may even take some photos of the exciting spaces .. including the alice in wonderland area, the wall of books and maybe even Rome if you’re lucky and we can get out of the Galleon area!

As a christmas treat we thought some of you would like to see the much talked about Quadrotech film .. we believe the method acting to be out of thie world (or rather we simply found it pretty amusing!) check it out here The Spy Who Hacked Me

Next week will be a quiet one (at least we hope so) as its Christmas so we’ll wish you all a great Christmas break, a fun New Year and hope to see you on the other side.
