Creative Marketing Network

Participants of a nightly art walk talking to each other in a circle.

Where Leicester's cultural and creative marketing teams come together for connections, cultural exploration and shared insights.

Our purpose is simple – we meet regularly to facilitate connections and share best practices with guest speakers or CPD opportunities. At each meeting we enjoy exploring the different creative and cultural venues our fabulous city has to offer with (sometimes) exclusive access to some of the best venues in town. We all contribute to the yearly cultural calendar of events in the city and these meetings aim to enhance the collective impact of Leicester’s creative marketing sector.

Everyone who works in arts marketing or the creative industries in Leicester is openly invited to attend.

We host bi-monthly meet-ups at different cultural venues with each offering a chance to explore behind-the-scenes. We engage in a 2-3 hour session that combines informative presentations with extra time to immerse ourselves in the unique offerings of the host venue. It’s not just a meeting; it’s a chance to explore Leicester’s cultural scene firsthand.
