Creative England partners with Microsoft and The Farm for South West Connect

Creative England is to launch its new series of high-level ‘Connect’ networking events for 2015/2016 in Bristol later this month backed by Microsoft and The Farm post-production house.

South West Connect will take place at the Hotel du Vin on the evening of 22nd June and is expected to attract producers, heads of department and senior crew from both factual and drama productions in the region, as well as a wealth of production companies, facility houses and production services based in the South West. 

Creative England has worked with a range of partners on its events programme over the last three years, including BAFTA, Elstree Studios, The Production Guild, Sargent-Disc and Arnold Clark. We’re delighted to welcome Microsoft and The Farm as sponsors for South West Connect, who will both be promoting their services on the night and how they can help you with all your production needs.  

In the past three years, we’ve held 33 industry-networking events, which have been attended by over 3,500 industry professionals. We are looking forward to developing this programme to help regional businesses and freelancers make the contacts they need to grow.

If you are a senior level crew member working in features, high-end TV drama, animation or factual production, or if you are a decision maker at one of the South West’s production companies, facility houses or production services and you’d like to attend this event, please contact Nicky Ball, our National Crew & Facilities Manager on

With thanks to sponsors, MicrosoftThe Farm and Hotel du Vin.
