The Chat Up

The Chat Up is a new informal space where guest artists and invited experts can share their passion, inspirations and ideas. There are also performances by Heart n Soul artists on the night.

Each Chat Up is different and anything can happen. The audiences are also encouraged to take part and share their thoughts too.

Past guests include Michael Price and David Arnold, the award-winning composers of BBC One drama Sherlock, filmmaker Kim Longinotto and editor Ollie Huddleston, celebrated artist Bobby Baker and Shami Chakrabarti CBE director of civil liberties organisation Liberty. Most recently there have been inspirational conversations between Philippa Perry and poet Dean Atta and with Liz Carr and Jess Thom.
