The Trip of a Lifetime...

Hello. How's your week going? Good, you say? Let’s see if our monthly rambling can’t spice it up some more!

This summer, it's our birthday. We'll be 4 years old. And we're very very excited. Because as more and more people join our organisation, we're dreaming up more and more ideas, in between our day jobs, to help enrich all our lives as gay professionals.

In this month's news we'd like to offer you a snapshot of what's in store, socially...

We're going to see all sorts of things; a party under the stars at the Kensington Roof Gardens; unique speaker-events; private VIP dinners; a new series of dating events; cocktail soirees, and monthly social gatherings drawing the friendliest gay professionals in town.

Kensington Roof Gardens Birthday Party... with Gay Times! 20 August 2009

This August, we’ll be 4 years old! Gay Times will be 25! Can you believe it?! To celebrate, and to say thanks to everyone who has supported us so far, we’re throwing a birthday party, for us and GT, at the very best venue in London; possibly the world!

High above the streets of Kensington, beneath the stars and setting sun, we’re taking us all to a breathtaking rooftop oasis that offers beautiful gardens, a members club, restaurant and night club – all overlooking the dazzling London skyline.

With stunning surroundings, welcome drinks and food thrown in, beautiful company, live entertainment, and music provided by some of London’s hottest DJs, this promises to be the party of the year.

Tickets are strictly limited. To reserve yours, click here.
