Creative Card Monthly Events Programme

Monday, 23 December 2019

Posted by

We’re kicking off our 40th year in style with the launch of our brand-new Creative Card monthly events programme. Following last year’s successful launch of the Creative Membership – open to anyone who identifies as a creative to help access industry support and discounts – we’re levelling up our support with exciting new card benefits and activities. Each month, join us for hot desking, 1:1 support, socials and special events. See the Winter/Spring line-up here:


Freelancer Wednesdays

Last Wednesday of the month, 9am – 4pm

Every last Wednesday of the month, Unity will open its doors to freelancers, students and those in need of a comfortable, free place to plan, study and get creative. No need to book, just show up, sign in or up to the creative card and plug in. There will be free tea and coffee set-up in the bar (though donations are always welcome!).

Wed 25 Mar Fri 3 Apr – Arts Council England Surgery – CANCELLED
For our March Creative Surgery we are joined by special guest Nikki from Arts Council England.

The Creative Social – once a month
Every month, we’re inviting our Creative Card members to meet in the bar pre-show to chat, network, drink share and support each other. Any kind of creative is welcome, whether you’re a performer, designer, artist or arts admirer. Staff from Unity will also be on hand to let you know about all the latest creative opportunities within Liverpool and the North West. All Creative Card members get £5 tickets to the evening’s performance, which will include the opportunity to meet the company as part of a post-show event.
