About Spiela

Spiela is a collaborative network empowering young people as a whole, but with a particular mission to engage those from all backgrounds and ensure that they have a safe and supportive space in which to engage and network with others.

Spiela facilitates networking and conversation covering a diverse range of topics including business and employment, education, faith, culture and politics. We provide a Q&A side which gives us a more collaborative and educational aspect to what we do. We have had celebrities, activists, authors, politicans and many more speak directly with the Spiela community. This is our main feature and really what represents Spiela; real life influencers using our platform to share, motivate, engage and inspire other people.

Our Next Event : Spiela Summer Party| Saturday 14th July 2018

Hey guys,

We are back again!

This time, however, we want you to come and celebrate with us. We have now launched the Spiela app and have many cool things coming up we would like to share with you and we figured what would be better than doing it in the sun over a couple of cocktails? Nothing else of course!

We have booked out the beautiful cabana bar from 8 pm to 3am to party hard with you all. We have the legendary DJ Smallz on deck and a pool table for added effect for those who cant keep up with the all-night partying!

The first 50 tickets are FREE ( to access them, you must download the Spiela app and watch out for the free code that will be sent out to everyone by the 11th JUNE) and £5.50 thereafter.

We just want to thank everybody for their support, it is not possible without you all and want to celebrate with you guys in the best way.
