Saturday 3rd June 2017 Lambert's Yard, Leeds
Our most recent event was hosted at Lambert’s Yard in Leeds and we threw our very own Ibiza beach party! The day involved a few glasses of sangria, some good old Leeds sunshine and a lot of good music. We also had three speakers – Jen, Rhianna and Jess – who spoke about creativity for busy bloggers, growing an Instagram account organically and monetising blogs! It was another great event and we hope you can join us at the next one!
Saturday 3rd December 2016 Lambert's Yard, Leeds
The third Blog At The Beach event was on Saturday 3rd December and we hosted our very own tropical Christmas party! The venue in the centre of Leeds was decked out like a winter wonderland with a tropical twist and we had such a great time. 3 experts were on hand to answer any questions on Instagram, Pinterest and SEO and in true Blog At The Beach Style, we also had plenty of mulled wine flowing throughout the afternoon!
Saturday 23rd April 2016 White Cloth Gallery
In April, we invited 50 bloggers to the White Cloth Gallery in Leeds to enjoy a Mexican Fiesta. We kicked of the afternoon with a mariachi band and in true fiesta style, there were some very, very strong margaritas to welcome everyone to our 3rd Blog At The Beach. As usual, there were 3 speakers who spoke about growing your social following, vlogging and your blog security and hopefully left the Blog At The Beach guests with a few tips and bits of knowledge!
Saturday 1st August 2015 icelolly.com HQ
Our first event was way back in the summer of 2015 and we brought the beach to Leeds at our very own HQ in the city centre! Our speakers, Monica from The Travel Hack and Greg from Travizeo spoke about building your blog and the art of making video and definitely made everyone feel more enthusiastic about what they wanted to work on in the future.
Our 3rd Blog At The Beach had all you’d expect from a Tropical Christmas Party. Mulled wine, festive tunes on the steel drums and one super creepy elf. Okay, maybe you weren’t expecting the creepy elf but this event certainly had a load of Christmas cheer!
You can’t have a Mexican Fiesta without a mariachi band, a piñata and some very, very strong margaritas. It was certainly one to remember, or maybe not after those drinks, but here’s a run down of what happened at icelolly.com’s Blog At The Beach Mexican Fiesta!
