SohoCreate to showcase some of the creative quarter's brightest talents, with restaurateur Mark Hix and Line of Duty's Simon Heath joining the list of speakers

Actor Gary Kemp and singer and I’m a Celebrity contestant Toyah Willcox have agreed to take part in SohoCreate, the West End neighbourhood’s inaugural creative arts festival.


Assembling some of the UK’s leading creative minds, the June event will offer insights with sessions featuring a number of other creative specialists including advertising guru Sir John Hegarty, restaurateur Mark Hix and Simon Heath, the executive producer of the recent smash hit BBC2 drama Line of Duty.

The brainchild of Westminster Council and former Northern Film & Media chief executive Tom Harvey tickets for SohoCreate go on sale on Monday 14th April.

The festival takes place between June 4 and 6 and more names are expected to be added to the roster between now and then.
