Fire Eating Workshop - 17th June 2012

"I absolutely loved the event and would certainly recommend it."

And showing the photos to friends and colleagues leaves them in awe. If you haven't done this before, book it next time it comes up - you won't regret it!"

"People had often said to me that the fire eating was a really great event and now I know why. You learn a new skill which really impresses people, get the confidence to do it, learn the tricks of the trade, and above all have a great day out with like minded spice people!"

Swarthgyhll Farm - June 2012

"Good organisation and good food"

"A fun weekend, very relaxing. There was a good variety of things to do for the non-hikers about 30 mins away by car. I'd recommend it!"

A good evening out

Great fun trying to work out whodunit - even though I got it wrong. Brilliant venue for a murder mystery with the icing on the cake being the afternoon tea in the train carriage, thoroughly enjoyed my outing once again

Enjoyable relaxed atmosphere
