Glug Leeds – It’s Not So Grim Up North

We were recently asked to speak at Glug Leeds, and tell the story of how we came to work with the magical Grimm & Co, alongside some other talented people. It took place at Dukes Studios to a sold out crowd of 150+ people.

The theme of the night was 'It's Not So Grim Up North' and brought together Northern talent (Sheffield, Barnsley and Leeds) to show it's not all about being in London (#fucklondon).

We were given the 'headline 30 minutes slot' which seemed a bloody long time to talk, until we did a practice run which lasted well over 45 minutes. It was great to see other like-minded people, doing great shit in their own way. Special shout outs to Kyle and Kristyna who both did great talks.

All in all we had a blast and had a brilliantly inspiring night. We've done a few talks before but nothing this large, and never to solely our peers — still seems quite odd that people want to hear what we've got to say!
