UK Creative Festival Releases Promotional Tickets for Young Creatives

The UK Creative Festival has just announced the release of 50 promotional tickets to encourage attendance from under-27s, freelancers, and young creatives. Down from £450 to £150, the tickets will offer full access to the upcoming festival at Dreamland, Margate, September 7-8th.

To purchase the £150 tickets, those who are applicable can simply use the promo code LBBDISCOUNT at the checkout. 

Designed to connect, educate, and inspire young untapped talent with the best of the UK creative communities, this year’s festival aims to build on the success of the last. Hosting over 750 delegates and 120 young creatives, attendees were treated to a huge variety of talks, panels, and workshops from more than 80 speakers - including actor and writer Simon Pegg. 

This year’s festival centres around ‘Pirates of Creativity, Mavericks of Leadership and disruptors of the future’, and will see some of the most forward-thinking creative minds come together to discuss the issues facing the industry today. Chosen from among the UK’s very best industry leaders, together, they combine a diverse wealth of creative expertise, skill and talent. Speakers include Wayne Hemingway, Rankin (British photographer and founder of Rankin Creative), Vicki Maguire (CCO, Havas London), Ete Davies (COO, Dentsu Creative EMEA), Adah Parris and Nils Leonard (Founder, Uncommon) - to name but a few. The full schedule can be found here.

The UK Creative Festival maintains its commitment to removing creative industry barriers for a more representative workforce by hosting a free-to-access careers fair. The festival will also feature the showcase event of the Foundation Futures programme, launched this year by the Creative Foundation charity, in partnership with the Creative Mentor Network. Over the course of 16 weeks, the scheme has seen aspiring creatives from lower socioeconomic backgrounds mentored by leading professionals on how to navigate a career in the industry. 

Doubling down on its commitment to nurturing young creatives, the festival will also be offering a number of discounted tickets to the under-27 membership base of Shoreditch House. In addition, the members’ club will be promoting the event and all it has to offer via a series of pre-festival talks, delivered by such spokespeople as Trevor Robinson and L.A. Ronayne.

Jeremy Green, Managing Director of the Creative Circle and Founder of UKCF, comments: “The LBB team and its members were early investors who backed the inaugural festival last year. We wanted to give something back to those that supported this event and helped fund the futures of our next generation. We look forward to welcoming you for a second exciting year centred on education, connection and progression.”

As ever, Creative Circle will continue to pledge 10% of all award entry fees and 100% of membership fees to supporting greater diversity in the creative departments of the future through the Creative Foundation. The UK Creative Festival is also pledging its profits to the Creative Foundation.
