Cannt positions itself as the event for those who can’t make Cannes

A Soho creativity festival called Cannt is looking to mop up the unlucky Londoners who could not make it to Cannes Lions this year with a number of insightful events of its own.

As an alternative to the upcoming Cannes Lions, Mr. President and creative hub the Hospital Club have partnered to deliver a festival for Londoners and those in the industry.

Started by Laura Jordan Bamback and Simon Gill to bring the spirit of Cannes to the streets of London's Soho, Cannt will host five evenings (Monday to Friday) celebrating the creative industries with those who cannot pop across to the exclusive French festival.

Highlights of the week’s line-up include an insight into the world’s first Instagram magazine with Havas Work Club and an Interactive Animation Workshop with Creative Social, Bernstein & Andriulli and Art & Graft.

Check out the line-up here.
