work + meet + play is a new coworking venue in Richmond run by thecitysecret and Serendipity 29.

Work meet play is open every Friday to provide an office community to encourage local businesses to work, collaborate and socialise in a unique way.

On Thursday this week it is National Freelancers Day, where the IPSE (the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self Employed), celebrate enterprising businesses within the self employed sector.

In recognition of National Freelancers day work + meet + play are opening their doors to welcome businesses and freelancers to join them for the day, for free.

The office will be open 8.30am to 5.00pm. Places are limited so pre-booking is advised.
