About this Event

*IMPORTANT: When purchasing tickets (especially multiple tickets), please fill out the boxes with the ticket holders name, company and position!*

Meet-up to connect people in the world of interiors and property up North. Our vision is to connect like-minded individuals within inspiring spaces; to collaborate, inspire and support one another.

The first Concept North meet-up of 2020 is taking place on the 27th of February in Chester! We've had a wonderful 2019 and after a well deserved rest we are so looking forward to connecting with you again.

Location

This is the second time we have the pleasure of welcoming you at Chester's Opera Gill! It's a beautiful building with so much history and character, serving the most beautiful food! A little bit about Opera Grill:

'Our magnificent listed building dates back to 1836 when it first opened as a Methodist Chapel. It then closed shortly after World War One when the building itself was hidden behind a brand new building, a car garage called “Anchor motor co”. This garage went on to manufacture fuselage and spitfire wings in World War Two.

The building has clearly played an important role over the course of its lifetime with more being discovered about its history all the time. Therefore it was only right that we made the building something special again for Chester.

Following a painstaking restoration to expose the building to its former glory, we invested a further £3m in 2016 to create Opera Grill.

What's on

Ahead of International Women's Day we open up the conversation with key industry professionals spanning Architecture, Interior Design, Construction and Feminism to discuss and debate gender equality in our industry. We want to look at and dwelve into this subject from both perspectives so we encourage both ladies and gentlemen to come along and share their views with us.
