22 Dumballs Rd,
Come on now, it’s splashed all over the site do we really have to explain again?
It Will Glow is the event you need to attend in Cardiff, with unique talks from awesome creatives and exciting upcoming talents. It’s in the Depot and you get street food included too.
It’s more of a ‘I’m having a beer with a couple pals after work where I may also make a few new pals at the same time’ kinda thing. If networking is your thing, then go and network as they’ll defo be other’s keen to chat, but if not, then sit back and enjoy the food, drinks and vibe!
We don’t have a concrete answer on that - we’re thinking 1-2 a year depending on if you guys really like them or not. We’re quietly confident you will, but we don’t want to be cocky.
This is a super easy question to answer - just send an email over to email@example.com and let us know what it is you do!
We’re not inviting just anyone to stand up and talk, and whilst that may actually be an interesting concept for the future, we’re inviting people that we think have a genuinely interesting story to tell. That might be about their work, their approach to life or showcasing a successful project. You’ll have to trust us when we say that we’re only inviting people who we’re excited to hear talk and confident you’ll enjoy too.
We’re aiming for them to be around 35-40 minutes. We think that’s long enough to get a drink and enjoy the talks without needing an immediate refill / toilet break.
We’re going to have some amazing street food vendors available at It Will Glow. Previously food was included as part of the ticket but we’ve now made it seperate which means tickets are cheaper and you’re not limited to one meal.
Each vendor will have more than one option and will always include vegetarian, vegan and gluten free choices. Any requests or questions about this - just drop us a line via firstname.lastname@example.org
Absolutely. There will be a fully licensed bar selling a range of boozy and non-boozy delights.
Our arms are outstretched to embrace local businesses who want to help us put on an awesome event. Send an email to email@example.com and we’ll talk.
