The University of Warwick Press team is holding its annual event for Warwick alumni working in the media and journalists who work closely with the University.
It will take place at Warwick Business School’s base on the 17th floor of The Shard in London on Wednesday 12 July from 18.30 - 20.30.
The evening will start with drinks followed by a brief round table discussion between high profile Warwick alumni journalists on what it has been like to cover the biggest story of the year, Theresa May’s snap general election taking place on 8 June.
There will be the opportunity to catch up with, or meet new, friends and colleagues and also to speak to a selection of some of Warwick’s finest researchers about their current projects of media interest over nibbles and drinks.
