Those who can, CANNT


CANNT is the international alternative to the Cannes Lions. So, when the big cheeses jet off to Cannes to bathe in rosé, get sunburnt and sing each other’s praises, the busy bees who make all the awesomeness happen, stay home. But rather than feel sorry for ourselves we put on a romp called CANNT, a festival created in collaboration with all the best people, to celebrate ourselves, be creative together and share the love.

This year CANNT has teamed up with Creative Equals, Glug, Publicis UK, Facebook, and LifeIsTooShort to bring awesome activities across the week.

Grab a ticket, share and come along.
