So we’re back again in the final fortnight before our December eat-up. As ever we’re amazed and delighted at the support shown by curriers to arrange, promote, host and attend Social Care Curry Club. Four months ago this was just an idea and since then:
- we’ve had an inaugural curry in Birmingham in July
- the first international eat-up in September that saw over 200 people come together across the UK and Canada (in 13 locations)
- the biggest gathering of curriers at NCASC13 where over 80 people gathered in Harrogate
- we’ve also had some brilliant responses, reactions and even some coverage from the media in the shape of Community Care and the Guardian Social Care Network.
The network of curriers has also grown exponentially, from just Matt and I to over 1000 followers on twitter. We’re delighted that we have over 200 curriers booked to attend the December eat-up, and perhaps even more importantly, we have 21 UK venues and Vancouver on offer this time, which means that there’s more choice of local curry. As with last time the proof of the poppadom is in the eating but we’re quietly optimistic that a good time will be had by all.
You still have time to book your place, bookings will close a week today so that numbers can be finalised with curry houses. So, if you love social care and love curry and find yourself with a couple hours spare on Thursday 5 December, what are you waiting for. Full list of options as follows:
