Caffeine and Machine

Post by MelloYello » Fri Feb 08, 2019 8:47 am

Caffeine and Machine - Located in Warwickshire.
Has anyone been along to an event there?
If so what were your thoughts?
They seem to be doing a good job and opinion seems positive.

I ask because I hear a rumour that they will be hosting a rotary day on 7 July.....

Not been but it's not far from me and I'd like to go soon, I'll definitely try to be there if there's a rotary day.

Interesting website. July 7th you say? Gives me some time to grow a beard and get inked ( just has that kinda vibe going on ). ;)

It's a cool place, if a little lacking in space on the inside, but always worth a visit on any given day due to the variety of metal that turns up. It's going to be super busy come summer time.

Phil McGovern who runs the place is a top bloke as well.

I 've not heard anything about a day at Mazda HQ this year. Not to say it won't happen, but I'm not expecting anything.

I have received confirmation from the venue that the Rotary Day is a happening thing! Sunday 7th July.

I was there last weekend for a Facebook group event. Quite a cool setup and great coffee / food.

Jesse, there is nothing on their facebook page regarding upcoming events but they did message me back on May 2nd confirming that the event/date is definitely in their diary. That's about all I know at present.
