Creative England and Tileyard Education Presents … Live Events

29 July 2021 — 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Venue: Online Network

This is a must attend event for musicians, programmers and anyone currently working (or looking to work) in the live music events industry.

The live event, festival and hospitality sectors are facing unprecedented pressures from COVID and repeated lockdowns but the global hunger to experience creative talent on stage and commune as a live audience is insatiable and will continue to drive demand for live performances and festivals for many years to come.

Creative England and Tileyard Education bring together three independent live event entrepreneurs to discuss their career paths, highs and lows and where the industry is heading post pandemic.


Dean Freeman - Founder and Festival Director at Long Division Festival

Sean Fay - General Manager of Guesthouse at Liverpool Sound City

Sally Freeman - Managing Director of Love Live Music

This event is brought to you by Advance - a business support programme for creative and cultural practitioners, freelancers and SMEs based in Wakefield and the wider Yorkshire Humber region. Advance is delivered in partnership with Wakefield Council and funded by The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport’s Cultural Development Fund grant, which is administered by Arts Council England.
