Heard was born in Manchester, and conceived on a night out. We were sat in a new bar that was just the same as the old bar trying to find somewhere we would like. We looked online and found all the usual suspects, but we didn’t want to waste time searching through a load of reviews, or walk halfway across town to find out we had to queue for an hour and then wait another hour to get served.

The more we thought about it the more it made sense. You can go online and ask people all over the world, but what If you just want to speak to the people near you and find out what’s going on at that moment?

Once we decided we were onto something, we realised you could use the same thing to talk to anyone near you about anything – from gigs to shopping and everything in-between – and Heard was born.
