Glow Sticks Pub Crawl 2020 - Fortitude Valley

I love hosting events and organizing special moments for people. I have a lot of friends that personally don’t like clubbing but they still enjoy a night out with friends. I wanted to start something that everyone was welcome to join. A chance to experience Brisbane bars and pubs in a new way and to encourage a different and unique way of experiencing Brisbane’s nightlife.

If there’s anyone you can rely on to be responsible for the night. Its Hugh. He will help pull your mate in line when its looking ugly and pull you into party mode if you’re getting down.

I do the website and started The Pub Statement. I’m happy where we are going and slowly want to grow, making sure we keep ‘win win’ relationships and ongoing ROI’s with all the venues we work with. I love a good party
