Talk Twenties Is Bringing TwentiesFest To Liverpool This Autumn — The First Festival Which Is Dedicated To Helping People Navigate Their 20s Will Take Place At Camp & Furnace In The Baltic Triangle
Talk Twenties is the rapidly-growing media platform and voice of a generation for twenty-something young-adults in the UK.
The community-focused platform comprises a podcast (with guests ranging from celebrities and influencers to personal finance experts), website and the first ever large-scale event, TwentiesFest, which is dedicated to helping Gen Z’r’s through the most formative (yet rollercoaster) years of their lives.
‘I just felt like it was a super overwhelming time and Universities don’t always cater to answering all these questions. Same with schools – there wasn’t really a platform out there that could address these problems, and provide a community and support system for young people'. - Gaby Mendes, Founder & Host of Talk Twenties and TwentiesFest.
Founder Gaby Mendes set up the award-winning company in 2020 after working as a sixth-form teacher. She was bombarded with questions from her students about adult life following school or University.
With questions varying from managing mental health to the difference between a credit or debit card, Gaby soon realised that navigating adult life was extremely troubling for a lot of people in their late teens and early twenties.
For the first time ever, Talk Twenties is hosting a festival with speakers, workshops, live music and a room full of insane brand activations. TwentiesFest will be on the 1st October 2023 at Camp & Furnace in Liverpool.
