Okay, so I’m taking a little detour from all things fashion and beauty related today and taking a moment to acknowledge all the absolutely ace events and meet ups that happen around us, a lot of the time without us even being aware.
I had the delight of helping out at one of the Leeds Indie Food events this weekend, and it was incredible.
For those of you who aren’t local to the area, Leeds Indie Food is a month long series of fantastic and insanely delicious events, loads of different venues and collaborators come together to host some of the cities greatest gatherings. (It’s the last day today sadly, but remember for next year!)
This one though was pretty special.
The Pop-Up dining duo that is the wonderful Balcombe & Smith partnered together with Fiction, and the events company Forest Found, to create the most magical evening.
In an area just minutes away from the busy city, people were gathered sharing a unique dining experience, and it got me to thinking, what else is going on right now that I could be a part of.
What events are happening on our own doorsteps, right under our noses, and how can we find them?
There are a plethora of different ways we can find out about local events and meet ups, you can keep it old school and look at the notes on the back of the post office door (Don’t turn your nose up at this method, I’ve been to some ace stuff that has been advertised in shop windows etc)
You can chat to your friends/co-workers/the man who serves you your cup of coffee in the local cafe/ANYONE and see what they get up to. (Thats how I found my Saturday morning running club, and got involved with Balcombe & Smith)
Websites such as meetup.com provide endless searches of activities and groups for you.
The world is your oyster, go feast!
(Or slightly more topical, the world is your mussel! Can you believe Friday was the first time I tried them?)
Let me know in the comments what local events you’ve been to, or groups that you’ve joined!
