Anybody who regularly attends design talks and conferences is well accustomed to convention centre carpeting and inspirational speakers in less than inspiring surroundings. Well, put those bad memories behind you, Designival is different. Firstly we get you out and about, visiting the numerous local studios that kindly open their doors for the Open Studios sessions. Expect insights, intelligent chatter and the occasional home-baked cupcake. Then we go and host the speakers in one of Liverpool’s coolest venues, Camp & Furnace.
Event space, eatery, bar, music venue and indoor festival park. This multi purpose venue, which is featured in the Wallpaper* Liverpool City Guide, has hosted Designival since 2012. Housed in a group of industrial buildings in the Baltic Triangle, an area that has come to be known as the city’s creative quarter. The speakers present in the indoor festival park which has recently been host to the World Cup Fan Park. You can get a drink and bite to eat in the bar during the intervals whilst snuggling up to a roaring log fire, it is July after all. And once the riotous applause dies down at the end of the talks, head into the Furnace for a special Designival edition of Camp & Furnace’s famous Friday night Food Slam. Essentially an indoor street food festival featuring great food, cocktails, champagne, DJs and live music courtesy of the Neighbourhood BBQ gang.
So to recap, Open Studios, talks by five incredible speakers, the best night out you’ll have all year and a Designival goodie bag. All for just £45, so what are you waiting for? Click here and get your tickets now.
