  • Don Letts (DJ, musician and film-maker) Thursday, 12 December 2013 (Outlaws Yacht Club, Leeds)

    Again nothing to do with me but well worth (once again) highlighting given the person in conversation with Chris...

    In Conversation with: Don Letts (DJ, musician and film-maker)

    When: Thursday, 12th December 2013

    Where: Outlaws Yacht Club, 38 New York St, Leeds

    The big-up:
    We are delighted to welcome DJ, musician and film-maker Don Letts to the Chinwag settee.

    It is simply immeasurable just how much Don Letts has influenced British culture. It is fair to say that without Don, the white working class youth movement that became punk would not have embraced reggae and things could have been very different. From humble beginnings as the face of clothes store Acme Attractions, DJ at The Roxy, manager of The Slits, confidante of The Clash and John Lydon to co-founder of Big Audio Dynamite and celebrated documentary film-maker, Don Letts has been creating magic for the last four decades. This description doesn’t even begin to do justice to the amazing adventure that Don is travelling. Come and join us to explore his unique perspective, insights, stories and music.

    Hosted by therapist Chris Madden, Chinwag invites you to lean in and listen to a conversation about life, creativity and anything else that comes up. Unlike a Q&A, this is an opportunity to get to know someone a bit better, hear a few of their tales, find out what makes them tick, share some insights and ask a few questions too.

    Held at the intimate Outlaws Yacht Club in Leeds, Chinwag is a unique chance to explore the lives and minds of our inspiring guests.

    Recent Chinwags have included sell out nights with Andrew Weatherall, Creation Records head-honcho Alan McGee, celebrated artist Pete Fowler, best-selling author Bill Brewster and multi-million unit shifting rock band Spacehog, music genre-creating DJ Ease (Nightmares on Wax) and legendary writer/DJ Kris Needs.

    As with our previous nights, this is a unique, special and intimate event, with limited capacity. Tickets are £5, limited to 75 only and purchased at;
