THE UK ACTORS TWEETUP
Tweetups are a networking night for entertainment professionals (we all originally met from twitter and now meet up in person). We get together on the first Tuesday of every month from February to November in a central London venue. Regular guests include Directors, Producers, Casting Directors, Actors, Writers, Composers and more…
It’s all about bringing together a community of like-minded individuals who creatively make it happen. You can follow us on Facebook, twitter or here. You can even subscribe to our monthly email newsletter here.
Meet the team who make the Tweetups what they are in the UK:
