The Key, the Secret: Powered by Pecha Kucha

Ok, first up what is a Pecha Kucha night? Originated in Japan, a fast and fabulous night of individual presentations, but there is a rule... NOBODY can speak for more than 6 mins, which means that you really can’t afford to be BORING. Each speaker will show 20 images and talk about each image for 20 seconds. We also have a theme ‘The Key, The Secret’, which the speakers will have to get their tongues round. Hosting and curating this brilliant night is The Geffrye. You never know quite where you’re going with a Pecha Kucha night, which is all part of the format, so come and have a couple of drinks grab a chair and settle in.


The brilliant LINE UP so far with 10 speakers on the night... to read more about each speaker they'll be listed on the official PechaKucha website (link coming soon).
