Ropetackle joins Better Business Show

Better Business Show

Thursday 23rd September, Worthing Leisure Centre. 

Ropetackle trustees and staff had a great day showcasing the many facets of Ropetackle Arts Centre to local business people.  Organised by the Adur and Worthing Chamber of Commerce, of which Ropetackle is a proud member, we enjoyed talking to people who know Ropetackle and introducing the flagship community venue to people who don’t. We met some wonderful people and made some solid contacts for potential collaborations.

The day was very well organised and a great opportunity to get out and socialise (by that we mean network, obviously.)

Looking forward to attending next year.
