OUR NETWORKING EVENTS
Events postponed until 2021
Due to Covid-19 we've postponed our Cream Tea Club events for 2020 and hope to reconvene in 2021 when it's safe to do so.
If you booked a ticket for our Boringdon Hall Hotel event which was due to take place on Thursday 15th October 2020 from 3pm - 5pm (previously moved from April 2020), we'll make sure your ticket is automatically rolled over to our first event of 2021.
