LIVING IT UP
Living It Up Events formed in 2009. Originally a community group, it became a Community Interest Company in 2016. Living It Up was initially set up to promote Mencap’s ’Stay Up Late’ national campaign. This campaign was to promote the rights of people with a learning disability to stay up late and have fun.
Living It Up Events is run by Claire Crawford-Smith and Fizz Heseltine and has a team of 5 Directors, one of whom is a member. We pride ourselves as being a user-led organisation and all our projects have advisory groups and committee meetings to enable our members to make decisions about how things are run.
Living It Up could not run without the support of our volunteers, students, venues, other organisations and donations and we are really grateful to everyone who helps us in any way.
