Mum Talks: Back to Business

mum-talks-back-to-business-crop.jpg

Are you starting to think about going back to work, but don’t know how to explain the gap in your CV? Perhaps you’re thinking about a career change and need to reword your experience? Or maybe your confidence has been kicked to the curb and you need a little boost to do that dreaded presentation. Whatever your reason, our next workshop in association with Ealing Broadway is for you. We’ve got Kath Sloggett from Runneth London, who will walk us through her tried and tested tips on where to look for a job and how to make your CV stand out. She’ll guide us through the minefield of employment options as well as how to find a family-friendly job. To make the whole process a little less stressful we’re bringing in Sam Carrington from Smirk Experience, who after ten years of working at ITV and practising stand-up comedy now offers workshops to companies such as Google, Investec, Lloyds of London and more. Sam helps individuals with their public speaking, personal branding and creativity using stand-up techniques.

Cost: £5 + VAT

Tickets include: wine and nibbles and a gift bag!

Surviving the Holocaust

Following capture by the SS in May 1943, Lady Zahava Kohn and her family spent almost two years in Nazi concentration camps. In spite of the appalling conditions they faced, Zahava and her parents survived and were released in 1945. Over 70 years after her liberation, we are honoured to invite Lady Zahava Kohn to talk about her experience in the camps. In addition to her own unique and personal account, Zahava’s daughter, Hephzibah Rudofsky, will also speak at the event, providing a second generation perspective. There will be a display of Zahava’s remarkable trove of documents, letters and photographs, alongside records from our collection.

Whoop! The Dodo Micropub turns one on Saturday 27 January! Join us to celebrate our first anniversary. Can we make it as crazy as our opening, the soft launch that was so hard it was like a shower of diamonds listening to death metal! 

I have a top secret Weird Beard cask special confirmed. It's so top secret I can't really talk about it until Bryan Spooner himself has tasted it tapped and given it the thumbs up for public party consumption! YAAS! You know it'll be good if Weird Beard himself needs to be the first to try it! 

Expect a solid beer line up, fizz-a-plenty, the odd glass of wine, nibbles and good times. More info to follow!

The Vegan Mark Supper Club Debut

I am thrilled to announce my first supper club event which will be hosted at the award shortlisted The Dodo Micropub in West London. The event will be run as a charity fundraiser in aid of Animal Equality and ProVeg and all proceeds will be donated to both these charities.

So, whether you are vegan, participating in Veganuary or are simply plant curious, then this is the event for you.

We will serve a 4 course, nut inspired, menu with a welcome drink upon arrival and a take home goodie bag with samples for you to try at your leisure. This has all been made possible with the support of some wonderful brands including artisan cheese producers Essential Vegan and Raw Food Rosie’s and Aqua Esse, Raw & Wild and The Happy Snack Company who have provided us with your take home goodies.

Given cheese is at the heart of the menu we have paired this main course and the starter with vegan and organic wines from Spain. These are optional, so you can choose the ticket you want to purchase - with the paired wines or without. On the evening, should you wish, you will also be able to purchase alternative drinks from a vegan drinks menu featuring wines, beers and a selection of soft drinks including a limited number of the Aqua Esse intelligent aromatics spring water. You will be able to pay for your drinks by cash or card.

When purchasing your ticket also choose whether you wish to be greeted upon arrival with a mulled wine or a mulled kambucha. It will be mid January so both are assured to warm you up after your journey.

My mission is to constantly aspire to serve healthy and wholesome plant based food and with this in mind, only the highest quality organic ingredients will be used by me in all the dishes I personally prepare.

An adventure to Magic Mountain to save a little goose from a wicked troll

Smorg the wicked troll wants to steal Heidi the little goose away from Mother Goose – and eat her for his Christmas dinner! But Heidi is no ordinary goose – she can lay golden eggs. And so when the grumpy Baron Von Rumpensmakka finds out he wants to snatch her away too – and make lots of money from her golden eggs. 

Mother Goose tries her best to keep little Heidi safe, but when Smorg tricks her into taking a bath in the Bog of Beauty she loses little Heidi. The caring Fairy Aurora comes to the rescue but decides to send Heidi away to the Land of the Snow Geese and the Palace of Light on Magic Mountain – a place where no human has ever been.

Now Mother Goose and her daughter must take the perilous flight by hot air balloon to Magic Mountain to convince The Grand High Snow Goose to let Heidi come home. But the wicked troll and the grumpy Baron are racing there too - will Mother Goose get there in time to save little Heidi?

Join us on a fun, family adventure this Christmas with Mother Goose - our laugh-out-loud panto. Sing along, shout at the nasty troll, meet the Giant Geese of Boundtobiteyou and even do some yodelling! Oh - and don’t forget to wear your Christmas jumper!

The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore: This enchanting classic poem read by many the night before Christmas captures the special magic of the festive season.
