The Girl Friday Breakfast Club was established by Professors Kate Reynolds and Anita Taylor in 2018 to provide a friendly and informal space for women to meet and to hear from an interesting woman speaker over a delicious breakfast at Drawing Projects UK on the last Friday of each month. We held our first online Girl Friday in October 2020 after realising we had longer to go before we could gather again for breakfast due to lockdown, and have continued in this format. We aim to retain the informal format online, and events are not recorded, so do book to join in - and bring your own breakfast - or lunch or supper depending on where you are in the world! All women, and those who identify as women, are very welcome to join the Girl Friday Breakfast Club.

Please note that Annual Season Ticket Holders will have already received an email with a direct joining link for this event.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Girl Friday Breakfast Club on Friday!
