The #TGNCE19 Team

A Message from the Expo Director

I’m very excited to once again welcome you all to the sixth edition of The Great Northern Creative Expo. We are delighted to offer both the general public and the student base the opportunity to engage and be part of a unique event that has got bigger and better each year.

Last November, The Great Northern Creative Expo presented exciting premiere events from both established and emerging talents. We were proud to host seasoned creative veterans including General Manager of BBC North Adrian Mills and Stanley Kubrick’s producer Jan Harlan, culminating in attendance figures reaching above fifteen-hundred for the first time in the Expo’s history. 

Now, we are proud to offer our most comprehensive and diverse programme of events ever with over two hundred hours presented as part of The Great Northern Creative Expo 2019. We continue on in the spirit of the Expo’s original founding principal of delivering the best events across the creative industries in the North of England.

The Great Northern Creative Expo only happens due to the generosity of our principal sponsor, the University of Central Lancashire, alongside our other partners. We also applaud the tireless efforts of our Expo team and this is the perfect opportunity to extend our heartfelt thanks to them all before you delve into the programme, it truly is a collaborative and creative effort.
