Campfire presents ‘Big Boost Mondays’ with Jonny Grant, The Department – an evening to go deeper

Big Boost Mondays is a gathering of the like-minded on the first Monday of the month, to enjoy an evening with inspirational speakers and “doers” from the world of technology, art and culture. The event will take place at our brilliant FORA studio in Clerkenwell, London.
