Join us for business over lunch


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

First Friday networking – 5 April 2024, 12-2pm, at the Folly Upstairs

Join us when the jokes are over and we’re all back to business on the 5th April 2024, when we offer you, once again, good company, good food and the opportunity to network with local businesses.

The First Friday format

First Friday gives you 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! – check the booking form below).

How long has Petersfield had a top-class Museum and Art Gallery capable of housing world-class exhibits?

After lunch we have a short speaker slot. This month we welcome Jeremy Mitchell, trustee for Petersfield Museum and Art Gallery, Chair of the Edward Thomas Fellowship and Keeper of the Edward Thomas Study Centre. A busy man!

When the Museum underwent it’s still recent transformation into a first-class modern museum and art gallery the Trustees had the courage and foresight to integrate facilities that enable them to exhibit world-class collections, as well as important local history. 

Jeremy will be pre-empting the Museum’s June opening of the Peggy Guggenheim exhibition, Petersfield to Palazzo, exploring her connection with Petersfield and showing some of the paintings, prints and sculptures she collected by leading British and European modern artists.

The meeting closes at 14:00.

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

We look forward to meeting you!
