Chew The Fat #6 - Deyan Sudjic OBE

7pm - 10:30pm on Tuesday 6th May @ Shoreditch Village Hall,
33 Hoxton Square, London, N1 6NN

Doors open at 7pm, discussion takes place from 8pm until 9:30pm

Complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks for the night

Tickets are available on the door at £25 - cards accepted.

We're very excited to announce our highest profile Chew The Fat speaker to date! We've really pulled out all the stops for this event, and this promises to be our most fascinating, intellectual and creatively diverse discussion yet!

Deyan Sudjic OBE, is an author, broadcaster, journalist, architectural judge and the Director of the Design Museum. He’s written extensively on the subject of Design, Architecture, and how those intersect with society.

He'll be chewing the fat with Benjamin on a range of diverse topics, from design, to the modern London planning policies, the need for governments to build skyscrapers, to the role architecture plays in developing creative spaces.

We'll also be asking the difficult questions and unpacking the complex solutions, with discussion and questions such as:

  • Is the supposed "gentrification" of the Silicon Roundabout a myth, a natural consequence of attention, or a product of architecture and planning policies?
  • How does design inform and educate the human condition?
  • Is design a luxury or an essential in the modern world?
  • What can software designer and developers learn from architects and vice versa?
  • Who are the next generation of designers and makers shaping the future?
  • What is the role for Museums in the modern world.

Submit your questions for the panel in advance, just like last time!

This is must attend event for anyone with an interest in design, architecture and creativity.

The Speaker

'Chew The Fat' is a monthly series of conversations with high profile entrepreneurs, founders, VC's and generally epic people, designed to stimulate, motivate and inspire!

Adding to our existing roster of tech events (Silicon Drinkabout, Don't Pitch Me Bro, and Digital Sizzle), we'd like to welcome you all to 3beards' fourth event, 'Chew The Fat' - crafted to feed your brain and to get to the meat of the matter...

Each event will have 2 interviewers stepping into the hot seat:

  • The first, making his triumphant return to 3beards - former Deputy CEO of Tech City, and (more importantly) co-founder & now advisor to 3beards, Ben Southworth.
  • The second is you! We'll have a portion of the evening dedicated to Q&A with the audience, so you can get those burning questions off your chest!

We're bringing you face-to-face with the people that inspire, invest and drive all of us on to bigger and better things - and we expect you to be ready with questions of your own!

Here at 3beards, we know there's nothing like experiencing something first-hand - so we thought we'd bring you someone new and exciting each month, to open up the stories behind the people behind the headlines we all read daily.

Of course there'll be the customary 3beards hospitality with complimentary drinks included.

Come along, be inspired, be inquisitive, and most importantly Chew The Fat.



3beards is a content, promotion and events company. Sounds a bit dull and corporate, but there it is. We felt that 'Community Firestarter-enablers' sounded a bit overblown. We run the weekly Silicon Drinkabout in London, which has this year expanded to Copenhagen, Manchester and also Amsterdam. In addition to this we also run a monthly event called Don't Pitch Me Bro, all about startups demoing their products in order for the crowd to give constructive feedback. Lastly we run a larger quarterly event called Digital Sizzle, which takes a different form each time...
