SuperSummer, 29th July

To celebrate what has been a great year for SuperMondays, the team behind your favourite lo-fi hi-tech monthly get together have decided to throw a SuperSummer Soiree we are sure you are going to love. It’s a great opportunity for us all to celebrate making this year such a success and to our headline sponsors, Northern Film and Media and Sunderland Software City, for helping to make it all possible.

Register for SuperSummer Soiree in Secret Location  on Eventbrite

We have planned a fantastic evening for all of our regulars, along with family and friends. Think British summer garden party meets New York style roof top block party and you get the idea. Our generous hosts will be creative agency Fusebox Design whose beautiful city centre office provides the perfect location for us all to enjoy sizzling bbq food, pretty cocktails and ice cold beers. There will also be some live music from some very special guests and a fine film or four!

This magically secretive venue will be our weather proof haven – as let’s face it, there may well be rain – where you will be able to catch up with friends and make a hat full of new ones too. Fusebox Design’s offices are also a hop, skip and a jump from lots of pubs should you wish to continue the fun after the SuperMonday’s party has wound down.

We hope you can join us..
