The perfect way to make new friends, catch up with old acquaintances and share inspiring stories, fantastic local food and perhaps a dram or two.

Missed a spot on this year's sold out Social Enterprise World Forum, or the Welcome Reception event?  Or just looking for something more relaxed and intimate to wind down the first day of the conference? Then join us on the opening night of SEWF18 for a delicious 3-course buffet meal, drinks, and the chance to connect with local social entrepeneurs, innovators and supporters.

In an event exclusively for SEWF delegates and members of The Melting Pot community, we're opening our doors to host a cosy, relaxed evening of networking and bonding - right here at Scotland's Centre for Social Innovation, in the heart of Edinburgh City Centre just 20 mins walk from the EICC. 

The Melting Pot is home to a diverse bunch of amazing people doing wonderful things. Our members are creating innovative energy storage solutions, making documentaries about eating insects, campaigning for positive prisons, creating a dad-friendly world and helping children to stay emotionally healthy to name just a few.

Tickets include a welcome drink on arrival + 3-course meal and are non-refundable. We will also have a cash bar running on the night, serving some of the best local social enterprise beer and spirits.
