GOOD GIRLS EAT DINNER - 4TH BIRTHDAY!


It’s been 4 incredible years since Good Girls Eat Dinner first served up kick-ass speakers alongside delicious food and drink. In those four years we’ve put on a whole bunch of events and been inspired by a whole bunch of brilliant women (and some brilliant men). We’ve also had some breathtakingly lovely feedback so it’s time for a party! This event will be a sit down meal with fantastic speakers, as always, between courses. It’s going to take place at Concrete…a party venue if ever there was one. They’ve got an epic sound system and we’re going to use it. Well, a professional DJ’s going to use it - after the meal and speakers. Speakers already confirmed:
