The one-day immersive festival to inspire you and help you start your creative entrepreneurial journey
Think THEATRICS, think ACTION, think KNOWLEDGE.
ERIC Fest is BACK and this time we’re focusing on showing you how to set up your own thing, whether it be a creative business, a side project or if you’re simply interested in working for yourself. We KNOW you’ll be leaving more inspired, knowledgeable and that one step closer to reaching your entrepreneurial potential.
We’re partnering with The Old Vic and Tintagel House to make this an event unlike any you’ve ever been to before. This experience is designed to be part immersive-simulation, in which you’ll be experiencing real-life entrepreneurial situations and part attainable inspiration, where you’ll get advice, tips and knowledge that are well within your reach and power.
