On Thursday 25 March 2010, people in hundreds of cities around the world will come together offline to rally around the important cause of Education by hosting local events to have fun and create awareness. Twestival (or Twitter Festival) uses social media for social good. All of the local events are organized 100% by volunteers and 100% of all ticket sales and donations go direct to projects.
Unfortunately I can’t make the festival this year due to prior commitments on the said date but if I were, I would be attending the one in my home town of Farnham. The Farnham Twestival will be taking place at the towns 900 year old castle and is also boasting a keynote speech from TweetMeme’s CEO, Nick Halstead.
There are limited tickets left so if you want to have the opportunity to meet some other great people who use Twitter, visit a castle, listen to Nick from TweetMeme, donate money to a fabulous cause and have a free drink on arrival don’t hesitate to buy your ticket today. My PR agency is donating some raffle prizes for the night and I am sure that the team at The Blue Door, who are helping to organise the event, will have some further treasures on offer.
If you do order a ticket for Farnham Twestival, I would love to hear from you and hopefully we can meet at a future event or Farnham Twitter meet up.
