by the community, for the community

The team behind the London Community MeetUps have a passion for community, bringing together people from all over the United Kingdom to meet and socialise in person and create bonds that will last a lifetime at an event they'll never forget.


Emily Bello

Owner & Event Organiser

Seeing the disappointment that TwitchCon was so far away again, Emily wanted to bring the UK community together. The instant success of the London Community MeetUps showed the enthusiasm of the UK Twitch Community and to this day gives her all the motivation she needs to make each event better than the last.


Fun fact: The London MeetUps started as a Tweet invite for a drink down the pub. 600 people said yes.


Freddy Seven

CTO & Community Manager

A lifetime gamer and a full time streamer on Twitch for over 6 years, Freddy bleeds purple more than anyone. If he isn't streaming, he'll be found in a Twitch chat somewhere!


Fun fact: Used to stream under the name Oshi7



Event Coordinator

Sophie is on the front lines, ensuring that every event runs as smoothly as possible. She witnessed the passion her sister, Emily, had for the event and felt inspired to do whatever she could. She now finds herself an integral part of the events.


Fun fact: Will be, with 100% certainty, on the Dance Floor at the end of every event.



Event Coordinator

Attending the first 3 London Community MeetUp events, Ben fell in love with them. His ingenuity, insight and love for community made him a perfect fit for the team!


Fun fact: The only member of the team who doesn't live in the same flat as the other 3.
