Leicester & Leicestershire Freelancer Network hosts a monthly networking event known as Countryside Connect, an opportunity for entrepreneurs and freelancers to forge meaningful connections in a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere.

Countryside Connect is designed with a purposeful approach, embodying the network’s commitment to inclusivity and camaraderie. The event stands out for its informal nature, extending a warm welcome to everyone, with a special focus on encouraging newcomers.

Attendees can expect a friendly introduction to ensure they feel part of the vibrant community from the outset. The network takes pride in selecting picturesque venues across the Leicestershire countryside, adding a touch of charm to each gathering.

Countryside Connect adopts a straightforward meet-and-mingle format, deliberately avoiding lengthy presentations, elevator pitches, or speeches. The emphasis is on genuine interactions and fostering connections.

Countryside Connect takes place on the third Tuesday of every month – usually from 10am to 12pm. While most gatherings are free of charge, occasional nominal fees may apply to cover venue-related costs.

Please note that we are no longer using Eventbrite for bookings.
