LDN Talks @ Night is a new concept which aims to take the well known 'Tedx' style talks, and make them more accessible. We've pulled together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire and re-invent your after work beers.

Held in a hand picked range of bars across London, a LDN Talks @ Night event makes the perfect after work mid-week activity.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives over a beer with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!
