Join us for business over lunch


First Friday Petersfield is pleased to be at its regular venue, the Folly Upstairs

First Friday networking – 2 June 2023 12-2pm, at the Folly Upstairs

Join us on 2 June when to offer you, once again, good company, good food and the opportunity to network with local businesses.

We continue with a bi-monthly format as we slip into flaming June and welcome back a regular guest speaker in Damian Hinds MP. 

Damian will usually give us an update on current affairs and will then open himself up to questions from the floor,  so come prepared!

The First Friday format

First Friday gives time to catch up with people you know, time to make introductions, and to start meaningful conversations. We can even send invitations on your behalf if there’s someone you specifically wish to meet.

When we sit for lunch the conversations you’ve started develop as we enjoy the wonderful food at the Folly (yes, they cater for vegan, GF and other needs!).

The meeting closes at 14:00.

The price remains £22.50 per person, including lunch and coffee.

We look forward to meeting you!

Cancellation Policy

Please note we are unable to offer refunds for cancellations made within 48 hours of the event as catering arrangements will have been finalised at that time.

Our speaker – Damian Hinds MP
