UK Creative Festival Launches in Summer 2021
The UK Creative Festival 2021 will launch this summer at Dreamland, Margate.
Taking place over three days (September 8th, 9th and 10th) the Festival will celebrate the best of the UK Creative Industries with a programme of talks, workshops, panels, wellness activities, and social events designed to connect, educate, and inspire.
Powered by the creative community of today, for the creative community of tomorrow, the UK Creative Festival is committing to helping create a more diverse and representative workforce by also establishing a free-to-access careers fair at the Festival open to aspiring young people.
And the Creative Circle Awards will celebrate their 76th anniversary by finding a new home at the Festival to showcase great ideas, fresh thinking, and craft, marking the first time the Awards have moved out of London.
Delegates will be able to purchase tickets for the Festival and the Awards separately or as an inclusive package with the option of accommodation and access to Dreamland. Surrounding venues in Margate will also host sponsored parties, social events, and live music throughout the festival.
Confirmed Festival speakers so far include Uncommon Founder Nils Leonard, Havas CCO Vicki Maguire, Leo Burnett CCO Chaka Sobhani, TBWA CCO Peter Souter, and Former Head of 4Creative Alice Tonge. With many more, including several special guests, to be announced.
“We wanted to create a unique event dedicated to improving representation within the creative industries, not just at the highest level or even at entry level, but where it counts with aspiring young creatives” said festival CEO, Jeremy Green. “Most importantly we want to make this accessible to everyone, and we’re looking forward to working with national and regional youth organisations.”
“Creative Circle is the beating heart of British Advertising. And the Creative Festival shows just how big that heart is. Come join us as we help young creatives learn how to move from simply surviving the pandemic to completely thriving in a new world of opportunity” Peter Souter, CCO, TBWA.
“From class clowns to the quiet one in the corner ... mainstream education and creativity have never been a great fit. Until now. The festival aims to show those un-studenty students that there is an industry that not only welcomes outsiders, it allows them to thrive.” Vicki Maguire, CCO, Havas.
“We are thrilled to support the festival, and we are excited to see it come to life this year. This is set to be one of the biggest creative events of the year in the UK, and we are privileged to see it come to life on the Kent coast.” Eddie Kemsley, CEO, Dreamland Margate.
