GBC Meetings

GBC Meetings

We hold our general GBC meetings bi-monthly across a few different locations in Grantham depending on the event. Everyone is welcome to join us and tickets can be paid for in advance via our Eventbrite booking system, or on the door on the night. We do prefer it if you can book in advance as this will allow us to better plan the catering requirements for the evening.

If you are not on the list for our email notifications of future events and meetings so that you can book up in advance, please get in touch now and we’ll add you to our list for future event notifications.

The theme for this event will be based around meet and greet the new Committee along with an Election Hustings – where candidates from the various political parties will form part of a hustings type forum where you would be able to put questions about Grantham and the town centre to them. The candidates will all be standing in the upcoming May elections so this would be an ideal opportunity to put questions to them.

There will also be plenty of networking opportunities at this event along with a great buffet.

If you have a view or want to get involved with your business community – you should be at this meeting. The Grantham Business Club is YOUR Club and is for the benefit of ALL businesses.

A selection of Gins will be served for you to sample, together with nibbles to enhance the experience.  Learn how different Tonics and mixers enhance and compliment the various Botanicals within the Gin and perhaps by the end of the night (if you can still think straight) you might  remember which was your favourite one too!

This event is also open to non Grantham Business Club attendees, so if you would like to bring along a few friends you are more than welcome.  In fact, more the merrier!
