Forthcoming NHN Networking Events, Bristol

NHN Networking Events

NHN holds regular networking mornings for our members in Bristol. These events usually take place on the third Thursday of each month ( 9 a year) and attract between 50 and 70 professionals in our industry. NHN Networking Events are a great place to catch up, find out about new projects and hear speakers from the wildlife film community. These events are for Natural History Network Members Only. See forthcoming dates below.


These events have become very popular, and therefore we will offer them as a priority to our NHN Full NHN Corporate Members, while also reserving the right to ensure a good mix of topics for our audiences ( tech/ production)

NHN Networking Events are held at the Everyman Cinema in Bristol. They attract between 50 -70 industry professionals from the local and international business and offer a fantastic opportunity to tell colleagues about your company, its successes, its ambitions, and about current or ongoing projects.  It often works well, but is not in any way a prerequisite,  to tie these presentations in with an announcement, TX’s or launch. 

Our Networking Morning calendar is divided into three month blocks as below. Wherever possible our networking mornings are held on the third Thursday of the month.


All dates and bookings are subject to change, and invitation emails to our members will be sent out 2 weeks before the event
