Chinwag is an evening of easy going chat, over a drink, with creative thinkers and doers.
We are delighted to welcome music pioneer Greg Wilson, whose musical exploration and influence spans the 70’s to present day.
Greg began DJ-ing in 1975 and is renowned for being the primary influence in the UK’s love affair with electro-funk. His story is phenomenal and we cannot do it justice here but let’s just state that Greg was resident at Wigan Pier, had the first DJ residency at The Hacienda, was the first DJ to mix live on UK television, compiled the seminal ‘Classic Electro Mastercuts’ compilation and was nominated in 2008 for his outstanding contribution to dance music by DJ Magazine (and named in the Top 20 remixers of all time). His edits and mixes continue to enthral, thrill and receive universal acclaim. We cannot wait to explore Greg’s story.
Hosted by therapist Chris Madden, Chinwag invites you to lean in and listen to a conversation about life, creativity and anything else that comes up. Unlike a Q&A, this is an opportunity to get to know someone a bit better, hear a few of their tales, find out what makes them tick, share some insights and maybe ask a few questions too.
Held at the intimate Outlaws Yacht Club in Leeds, Chinwag is a unique chance to explore the lives and minds of our inspiring guests. Past Chinwags have included sell out nights with Andrew Weatherall, Creation Records head-honcho Alan McGee, cultural provocateur Don Letts, celebrated artist Pete Fowler, leftfield dance pioneer Justin Robertson and publishing maverick James Brown to name but a few.
As with our previous nights, this is a unique event with limited capacity. There are a limited number of tickets available at £5.00
