What is Bettakultcha?
Bettakultcha is a night of presentations by passionate people about things they love, hate, find interesting, or just want to vent. There’s no censorship, rehearsals, or reruns. Every speaker must meet our three rules – 20 slides – 15 seconds each slide – NO SALES PITCHES.
We’re totally independent and self funded, we don’t have any grants, sponsorship or investors which means that we’re an open forum for ideas, inventiveness and fun.
Here’s what’s been happening
It is with a heavy heart that I have to tell you that I am leaving Bettakultcha.
After seven amazing years, hundreds of outstanding speakers and brilliant audiences in Leeds, York, Bradford, Huddersfield, Manchester and two festivals I’m hanging up my clicker and leaving Bettakultcha in Ivor’s capable hands.
I’ve had an absolute blast bringing Bettakultcha to life with Ivor. From the very first event at Temple Works with the rickety board table and one loo, right through to 400 people in Leeds Town Hall and the filming of the Bettakultcha pilot for Made in Leeds – I’ve made so many friends and expanded my mind.read more
A taste of Bettakultcha
Where have we been?
We’ve been to a fair few places since the first Bettakultcha at Temple Works in Leeds in 2010. So many in fact we thought we should make a map! If we’ve forgotten any please let us know.
