Glug Leeds co-host Hannah O’Sullivan told Digital City: “The main driver is to create cohesion between advertising, digital media, graphic design and the visual arts through to fashion, architecture and the crafts.”

The event is being staged at ODI Leeds, on the third floor of Munro House, Duke Street, in the city centre.

Sponsorship and support is coming from the University of Leeds and Beer Hawk.
