A stunning Grade II listed mansion hotel, with beautiful photo ops at every turn, conveniently situated close to the M5, between Cheltenham and Bristol.
🎄BESPOKE WREATH MAKING!!!!!🎄
We are absolutely THRILLED to let you know that the amazing Florismart will be attending the event to teach every single attendee how to make a bespoke fresh festive wreath, worth a whopping £45!
You will be given a tutorial and then handed a pre-prepared base, all the equipment, foliage, beautiful fabric and eco friendly luxe glitter you could dream of, and then shown exactly how to make your wreath the envy of your neighbourhood by expert florists.
With the knowledge you will be given you will know exactly how to care for it to keep it looking fresh for up to 6 weeks, and then you get to take it home with you and hang on your front door ready for the big day!! 🎅🏼

Making Money From Your Blog
For those wanting to take their blogging to the next level and make some money, or existing earners who want to find new ways to monetise, Emma will be talking about her book ‘Blogging your way to Riches’ and sharing the ways that you can capitalise on your following. Formally a teacher, Emma has made so much from blogging that she was able to give up teaching altogether.
For the creatives out there, we have a guided, hands on, flat lay session with the lovely Amy Treasure where you can learn how to take your flatlays from flat to fabulous! She will be helping you to get the very best out of your product and food photography showing you how to use props and backdrops to make anything look beautiful and professional. This is a hands on workshop so do bring your cameras or phones and have a go!

Charlie Beswick – Own Your Truth
Can’t tell you how thrilled we are to have this wonderful lady speaking at this event. Motivational and inspiring, Charlie Beswick is an award winning blogger, published author, charity founder and professional speaker. She’s mum to Oliver and Harry and a self-confessed cheesaholic!
Based on the lessons learned along her journey as a special needs parent, plunged into a world she never expected or was prepared for, Charlie shares the incredible power and importance of honesty and resilience.
Her talk ‘Own your truth’ will cover what honesty is and isn’t, the reasons why people find it so hard to be honest with others and themselves, the psychological social and physical benefits of being honest and some advice on ways that you can identify and embrace your own truth for incredible results both personally and professionally.

He is the most inspiring, motivating business coach and we guarantee that you will be leaving with more than a few ideas about maximising your time to get the most out of your business. Here’s what one of his previous clients had to say when she heard the news that Adam would be speaking.
“Adam is amazing! I’ve been lucky enough to work with Adam and he’s just fab. So inspiring, hard working and will do all he can to help you get what you want and need from your business. I can’t speak highly enough of him.” – Emma Tiplady

We are so proud to support Inkind Direct. Both Emma and I have been brought to tears listening to stories about this amazing charity and the work they do to redistribute surplus products from large companies to smaller charities who would normally never have a chance to get hold of these vital products that they need to pass on to people so desperately in need. They will be attending on the day to talk to everyone about the incredible changes they make in people’s lives.
