Supper Clubs & Socials

Yes, it's true, I’m absolutely in my element when I’m organising someone or something (my poor family and friends!). I really enjoy bringing people together to share ideas and experiences; learn from one another and make new connections, so in addition to my Gin & Yin Retreats, I’m also excited to tell you about my next collaboration ....







The Gin Kitchen Distillery - Dorking, Surrey

Nestled in the Surrey Hills, in a converted barn, you will find the location of my next ‘Gin & Yin’ collaboration with the team at ‘The Gin Kitchen’. This event will start with a ‘yin inspired’ yoga session (all abilities welcome), followed by an introduction to the ‘The Gin Kitchen Distillery’ and their story so far. You will also learn about the gin making process, whilst sipping each of their vibrant and characterful gins such as Gutsy Monkey and Dancing Dragontail.  You will also experience first-hand the love, skill and laughter that goes into handcrafting these luxurious spirits, which has led to them supplying their gin to some of the UK's fanciest hotels, as well as Fortnum & Mason no less. To keep it all balanced, the distillery tour will finish with some wonderfully healthy seasonal food, to be enjoyed with a G&T of your choice (well of course).​

What's Included:  60 min Yin Yoga Session - Gin Talk, Tour & Tastings - Healthy Seasonal Buffet Supper - Your choice of G&T (full size)​​

Plant-Based Winter Warmer  - The Retreat Kitchen, Richmond


I'm delighted to be back collaborating with the formidable team (Maggie; Claire & Georgie) at The Retreat Kitchen in Richmond for another 'Supper Club with a Purpose' - The purpose of which is to celebrate people's stories, skills and their passion, whilst enjoying a delicious 'plant-based winter warming' supper, accompanied with a G&T (well of course).   Honestly, it's a winning formula, so much so, our last 2 supper clubs here have 'SOLD OUT, so don't rest on your radishes if you're interested - spaces limited to 18.

It has been well documented that reduced levels of sunlight in the winter months means a drop in the mood-boosting brain chemical serotonin as well as an imbalance in melatonin, another brain chemical regulating sleep and mood. So what can we do to keep ourselves well-nourished; healthy and happy? The team at The Retreat Kitchen will once again create a delicious 3-course meal to help us think more creatively about plant-based winter warming meals, in addition to providing some wonderful stress-free recipes to try at home. Spaces limited to 18 – come by yourself, or with a friend or your partner - everyone is welcome.



What’s included:


Welcome G&T and Intro from our Gin Partner (tbc)

A 3-course 'winter warmer' supper

A short talk from The Retreat Kitchen about their story and what they've learnt so far

A goodie bag to take home

Price: £35.00pp (sorry plus eventbrite fee of £2.06 sorry about that)
