Glug is coming to Bristol... and we can't wait to see you at our launch event!

Glug Bristol will bring together creatives from across the city to showcase awesome work, share experiences and meet like-minded people. Each event will feature talks from local creatives, agencies, start-ups and exciting up-and-coming talent, plus tons of time for seriously light-hearted networking. 

The theme for our first event will be Launch. Expect to hear stories about starting up, sparking ideas and new beginnings from our awesome speakers:

Stephen Hayles – Upfest


Stephen Hayles, co-founder of Upfest, will be joining us to share the story behind the launch of the festival, and how it’s grown into Europe’s largest live street art and graffiti event. Drawing thousands to the streets of Bedminster every year, Upfest features a mix of around 400 Bristol-based, UK and international artists, and sees live art, workshops, live music and more take over for the weekend. Upfest 2018 will be taking place on Saturday 28th - Monday 30th July (and we can’t wait).
