Speakers, networking, stalls

Creative Garden is brought to you by Leicester’s Creative Coffee team – with a mix of guest speakers, networking activities and stalls.

Creative Garden is a fantastic chance to hear interesting stories from creative industry professionals, try your hand at a fun networking activity and get to know about some of the opportunities that are out there in Leicester.

The event is ideal for creatives, business owners and entrepreneurs who are looking to meet contacts and find out about funding and job opportunities in the city.
