Interested in being a venue?

Here’s what you need to know:

We are all about baking, meeting, sharing and talking. It’s a simple and sociable concept – go along, meet new people, make friends.

We meet for about two hours every month, baking along to a particular theme.Our attendees buy refreshments and share their bakes. Each month, one of our members writes a piece for this website about the event.

What we need from a venue:

  • A designated area to meet for a couple of hours
  • A table or surface to put our bakes on.
  • Plates, napkins, forks and knives for cutting bakes
  • Somewhere to purchase hot & cold drinks.

What we do:

  • Liaises with venues.
  • Create a buzz and tell people about the event using the website & Twitter before, during and after the event.
  • Take photos and ensure a post goes on the website, group members write the post.
  • Send out monthly newsletters and reminders

What you get:

  • New customers
  • A chance to reach out and engage with your local community
  • Revenue at an otherwise quieter time (we are thirsty people and previous venues have had many members arrive early/stay late for something savoury)
  • A chance to show off your business

Want to get involved? Contact us via the ‘get in touch‘ tab above. Before we meet have a look at these:

Things to think about: 

Timing – Think about the days of the week and times you can make space available for at least 30 of us. Most clubs meet after 5pm or at weekends.
Practicalities – Will you be able to reserve an area for us, so it is ready for our arrival.
Demonstrate – Do you want to run a demonstration or show & tell related to your business.  20 mins long is usually fine and it’s a great way to show what you do
Join in  – Be there and talk to people, they will be interested in what you do – even bake something!

We look forward to working with you
