This autumn Jack Horner, Founder of FRUKT and trustee to the RSF will host an intimate evening ‘in conversation’ with the incredibly talented, successful and innovative men and women of the music industry who live in our neighbourhood. Despite touring the world, influencing millions and writing incredible songs - you can also find them in the local pubs and coffee shops. They are performers, producers, DJs, label bosses, technology innovators and promoters.
The format is an informal fireside chat in the excellent local Moncada Brewery - Jack will invite the guests to share stories of how it all began for them, the ups and downs of their journey to the top and what keeps them there. It will be honest and revealing, and you’ll get a chance to ask questions.
