GREAT Festival of Creativity 2015
London - Arab Today

Unique International Festival set to celebrate British business creativity and innovation in Shanghai 2-4 March 2015
In a drive to demonstrate that Britain is a world leader in commercial creativity, the GREAT Festival of Creativity will land in Shanghai in March. The best of British talent and expertise will inspire, stimulate and fascinate a high-level business audience from the UK, China and beyond.
The Festival, based at Shanghai’s Long Museum, West Bund, will be led by HRH The Duke of Cambridge. It will show UK innovation at its very best in sectors such as fashion, luxury retail, health, technology and entertainment, demonstrating the UK’s track record in bringing competitive advantage through commercial creativity and will create opportunities for UK companies to break into one of the world’s fastest growing markets.
A unique partnership between the British Government and major private sector organisations, the Festival is part of the GREAT Britain campaign which promotes the UK as a world-class destination for trade, tourism, investment and education to generate jobs and growth.
Highlights include:
•State of the art virtual reality experience from Framestore, creators of the seven-time Oscar-winning film Gravity, and the recently released Paddington
Mike McGee from Framestore commented: "We've always tried to do things differently, and at the GREAT Festival we'll be showing how taking risks has resulted in some of our most innovative projects - from films such as Gravity, to emerging formats like virtual reality."
•The National Theatre’s life-size puppet horse Joey, from the internationally-acclaimed theatrical production War Horse, to highlight the partnership between the National Theatres of Great Britain and China
Nicholas Hytner, Director of the National Theatre, remarked: “We are excited to be working with the National Theatre of China on the next chapter of the extraordinary journey that War Horse has taken around the world; we very much look forward to sharing it with Chinese audiences in Beijing, Shanghai and all over China.”
•Two fully immersive fusions of industrial robotics and virtual reality from UK company INDE Appshaker.
Alex Poulson, CEO, INDE Appshaker: "Immersive and interactive is the thread that connects all of our work together, so to bring two of our newest and most exciting systems to Shanghai is incredibly exciting for us."
The unique partnership with the private sector will provide a platform for original thinking and the best in British business creativity from Festival sponsors including:
HSBC: a dedicated zone to support human ambition and business creativity, featuring Business Surgeries for those looking to take their business further and an ‘Ideas Exchange’ that pairs influential players from the world of business (including Sir Martin Sorrell) to reveal their personal experiences, commercial insights and what creativity means to them and their brands.
Jaguar Land Rover: demonstrating how computer-aided design technology sits alongside traditional clay-modelling skills to fashion the iconic style of its premium vehicle brands

De Montfort University: bringing its range of courses to life through interactive live footwear and clothes design demonstrations, a virtual walk-through of Medieval London and insight into its revolutionary research in the health sector
BBC Worldwide: taking visitors behind the UK technology and creativity used to make award-winning wildlife documentaries and showing how UK technology and creativity come together in the BBC Earth hit series such as ‘Penguins – Spy in the Huddle’ and ‘Dolphins – Spy in the Pod’

British Airways and VisitBritain: hosting a ‘best of British’ garden party, inspired by the mix of rich heritage and modern innovation to bring a truly British experience to life.
The festival will also host the first viewing of ‘GREAT Creations’: a unique exhibition bringing the variety of UK creativity to life. Items on display for the first time together include:
