Summer is still here, and Croydon is still the greenest borough in London, so there is an abundance of outside spaces to enjoy around our bustling town centre.

We guarantee that all those coming along to our lean, green social event will leave feeling refreshed, re-energised, and ready to take on the tumultuous month of September!

Theme: The Clean, Green, Croydon Machine

What can you expect?

Vegan Buffet • Summer Drinks • Netwalking • Conversation Games • Guest Speakers • Lots and Lots of Fun!

Shaking Hands members and guests will arrive at StartUp Croydon’s fantastic venue, a two-minute walk from Wandle Park Tram Stop, where you can expect light refreshments and nibbles before taking your comfy seats to hear from our incredible guest speakers!

Sound good so far? Now imagine a gorgeous, succulent vegan spread, with bucks fizz in biodegradeable cups, indoor presentations and outdoor networking. We’re sure this event will leave anyone that is unable to make it green with envy.

Naturally, in true Shaking Hands style, attendees can expect some awesome networking opportunities. The idea for this event, conceived by Wild In The City and Shaking Hands in 2016, is Netwalking, where our members and guests can enjoy a midsummer stroll around one of Croydon’s biggest recreational regeneration projects – Wandle Park.
