Run Riot was established in 2010, to be a quality brand championing creatives, and providing a peer-driven events recommendation service for culture fans. Run Riot is dedicated to enticing curiosity to discover and engage culture. We’re talking about live music, art, film, theatre, dance, club culture - and everything in between and beyond.

It’s a given, we set out to highlight niche, counterculture creatives in equal measure to established talent. Where possible we amplify the meeting point of arts, progressive contemporary culture and social movements.

Each week we invite a topical individual from the creative industries to be our Guest Editor. We interview them, and they recommend 4 culture events to our readers. The content is headlined on and promoted via our What’s On bulletin and social media. It’s simple. Our community love it.

On occasions, Run Riot has produced a print edition and live events. On a more regular basis, Run Riot works with its culture partners to highlight selected events.

Over the next 12 months Run Riot will be looking at ways to develop what we do, building a community of culture fans and industry insiders (from creatives to promoters). Together, we’re championing culture that engages, inspires and seduces. Come along with us...
