We couldn’t agree more. That’s why The Big House has teamed up with Google’s Digital Garage to offer two exclusive workshops in June and July. Let’s Get Digital and Seriously Good Social Skills are two half-day sessions which provide an opportunity to hone the digital skills essential for taking any creative or digital business to the next stage.

"We are delighted to bring the Google Digital Garage to The Big House in Nottingham and ensure everyone has access to free digital skills workshops. We hope you'll pop in and get the skills you need to become more confident online, grow your career or business and maybe even launch the next big idea."
