We launched in Reading!

On the 28th of January it was time for Glug to once again spread it’s wings and connect creatives in a new city – and this time around it was Reading, UK. 


Organisers Antonia Taylor and Louize Clarke not only secured a great line-up – they also put the event into guestlist-mode twice(!). On the night there were over 200 Gluggers in the space, kindly borrowed to us by Rynd Reading, and it was a great atmosphere with a lot of excitement and anticipation.

The line-up consisted of Giles from What3Words, Casper from Shotopop, Rachel Bradley from Gossip Girl Talks and Glug founder Ian Hambleton. With inspiration and insights focused talks they all hooked the audience with their passion, wit and Tweetable quotes. Check the #GlugReading hashtag and you’ll see what we mean, but here’s a few:

“The fight against average”

“No one wants to see a streaker in pants. If you’re gonna do it, go the whole hog”

“Work what you love into what you do”

“Unashamedly on a mission to change the world”
