Bloggle and GEEK: Like bubble and squeak, but without the washing up.

Or, like all the best double acts, with plenty of fun on the side and a healthy dollop of creative interaction to leave you fully satisfied.


Following on from the successful Bloggers’ Forum during our last event at coFWD, we’ve bowed to public demand and scheduled a Bloggle. A play on the regular Tuttle, Tipple and Nibble phenomenons, it’s a social evening for – but not exclusive to – bloggers, who can come along and get to know others in and around Medway. Hot drinks and soft drinks will be provided but if you want to bring along a tipple or nibbles of your own, please feel free to do so. Due to the nature of coFWD, numbers are limited and will need to be booked via our Eventbrite page here. The event is free but a suggested donation of £2 on the night to cover the space’s costs would be much appreciated.

In conjunction with coFWD’s support of GEEK2013, this will also be an independent satellite event in the run up to the main event in Margate during half term week.

After a very successful debut last year, GEEK (Games Expo East Kent) have introduced the theme of ‘Meet, Make, Play’ to celebrate 40 years of games playing. The event runs from Thursday, February 21st to Sunday, February 24th and further details regarding tickets and what’s on can be found on their website.

Other satellite events (booking required) at coFWD include:

Saturday 26th January, 11:30am – 4pm Sunday 27th January:  A marathon all day/night of gaming madness. Whether you play on PC, Xbox or PS3, bring along your system, game and socialise!
