Events in September

Now that most people have returned from holidays, events are back in the calendar, and this month brings some of our favourite design and digital events around Leeds…

First Thursday: Cyprus College of Art at The Tetley

Thursday 1st September
The Tetley holds a different arty event on the first Thursday of every month, and this time, it’s an opportunity to find out more about the independent art school Stass Paraskos set up in Paphos, Cyprus. There will also be a wider discussion about art education from the 1960s to now. The format will be a panel discussion with a chance to ask questions, and will be a great unusual event to kick off the month.

Leeds Digital Drinks at The Reliance

Friday 2nd September
It’s Leeds Digital Drinks time, and it’s beer week! That’s all you need to know - so head to the Reliance for a friendly Friday meetup!

Leeds Zine Fair at Left Bank, Cardigan Road

Saturday 10th September
Support local self-publishers, soak up creative vibes, and treat yourself to some completely unique zines; there will be over 60 stalls, workshops, food and booze to enjoy all day!

Leeds Illo Meet Up at The Social

Wednesday 21st September
This month, the PHP meetup will centre around two talks, from Ciaran McNulty and Gareth Midwood; head over to soak up some knowledge and meet fellow developers.

Front End North at Sheffield City Hall

Friday 30th September
Since it’s Manchester debut in 2014, Front End North has taken a year out, but is back in action for 2016! The organisers have lined up some fantastic speakers for the full-day conference, including Harry Roberts, Chris Hutchinson, and Stuart Robson. The Early Bird tickets are sold out, but if you dig around on Twitter, there are a few discount codes knocking around! This would be a great one to share with your digital team at work and make the most of a great event up North.
