Superwoman Suppers 2016

We are delighted to release the dates for our next series of Superwoman suppers. The highly popular suppers work like this:

Each supper is attended by between 10 to 15 women. As far as possible we try to arrange the attendees so that you network with a wide range of people from organisations different to yours. We eat lovely food cooked fresh by the team at E J Catering in good company. Over dessert we discuss the business questions that attendees submit and which we circulate in advance of the supper, together with short biographies of everyone attending. At the end we do a little collection for charity, often Oxfam's School Supplies or Giving Girls a Head Start. Bethan will also try to sell you Superwoman tea towels! So that’s food, wine, conversation, sharing business tips and advice and doing a little good all rolled into one super evening.

The cost for a three course supper is £35. At the KIN + ILK venue, wine may be bought from the venue at additional cost. At the other venues a glass of wine is included in the price. 7pm for 7.30pm. Normally done by 10pm unless there is a Superwoman in our midst who is not driving and suggests another bottle of wine. We really like party Superwomen.

The dates and venues for this year’s suppers are below.

  • Thursday 17th March – KIN + ILK coffee shop, Capital Quarter, Tyndall Street, Cardiff,
  • Thursday 14th April – KIN + ILK coffee shop, Capital Quarter, Tyndall Street, Cardiff,
  • Thursday 12th May – Home of our chef, Emma Jenkins, Llandaff
  • Thursday 9th June – this one will be a bit different. Two sisters who have lovely gardens in Barry (Port Road West) and usually open them for the National Garden Scheme have offered to open their gardens to Superwoman; they are just a minute walk apart. This would be an afternoon visit to the garden and a cup of tea and slice of home made cake for up to 40, followed by a supper for 15 people for those who book first. The cost for this is £15 for just tea, or £45 for tea and supper.

If you would like to attend please reply to Caroline at carolinehazell@thompsondarwin.com as soon as possible, letting us know your preferred date. Ideally state a second and third choice too as the suppers book quickly and places are limited. We will then send you details of how to make payment and your place will be confirmed once the payment is received.

We look forward to hearing from you!
