Part of a global movement of events that share stories of business failure, the night will see four more brave entrepreneurs stand up and recount how their own business or project went off the rails.
They will then share what they learnt following the ‘fuckup’ and what they'd do differently next time. It’s a great opportunity for the audience to hear about problems that were faced, how they played out, and how they could prevent similar issues scuppering their business goals.
The next event is taking place at The Crescent Club, York, 10th September 2019. Once again it has been organised by York entrepreneur Lyndon Nicholson. Lyndon says:
“There is so much business talent in York that I wanted to set up a regular Fuckup Night here. After taking part in one myself in London, I knew it would do fantastically well. Our first evening in May was a great success, with the speakers telling interesting and entertaining stories. It was also a good opportunity to network with the crowd, which represented a varied mix of York businesses.”
As well as hearing from the speakers, and mixing with attendees, members of the audience will also be invited to offer up their own ‘one-minute fuckup’. This ‘open-mic’ round was very popular at the first event, so those who wish to share something quick and interesting can do so again.

"Speaking at Fuckup Night was like therapy. It was great to talk about a failure in such a supportive and friendly atmosphere. The whole night was a lot of fun and I met some lovely people"
