Events

Our events are hosted in the city as well as online. Our relaxed monthly socials and regular creative events are a great way to meet others and share ideas. Our online, monthly Hub events are the ideal platform to promote what you are doing and call out for support and collaboration.

If you are holding an event that fits our Ignite mission, or is something you feel our Members could benefit from, please use the Add your Event button to submit it for approval.

We recommend that events that are public or community facing are submitted to Chelmsford For You, where you will benefit from their tourism and retail business expertise.
