Spice New Year's Eve Party at Jurys Inn Sheffield - 31st December 2017

Overall an enjoyable evening l would go again.

Great event - all those who didn't book missed out

New Year Break in London- 30th December 2017 - 1st January 2018

This was a fabulous trip and a wonderful experience of being on the Thames at night seeing all the historic landmarks lit up.The disco and buffet was great and people were up dancing all night.Diane the coordinator was really good and explained everything and advised re tube fayres etc. The fireworks were magnificant and standing on deck with everyone watching them will be memorable. The cruise itself gives you loads of time on the Thames and the DJ was really professional- not cheesy ha and catered for all tastes. Would really recommend this trip.

Spice National Christmas Break in Chester - 24th-27th December 2017

A great way to spend Christmas. Lauren is a great host who makes everyone feel very welcome. There were things to do or you could do your own. The gym and spa were a real bonus.

The staff in the hotel were so lovely. Fantastic break in a really lovely spa hotel.

Another great Christmas with Spice. Enjoyed everything about it and getting a pub to open an hour early whilst we were mid-way through our Christmas Day stroll was the icing on the cake!

Christmas Luxury Weekend in Norfolk- 15th-17th December 2017

Its a very long drive to get to Hopton on sea but worth it for the great time you have when you get there. There is something for everyone happening throughout the day and into the following morning. The shows on the Friday and Saturday night were amazing. Food and staff were great. Will definitely make the trip again.

York Christmas Meal at The Lime House restaurant- 12th December 2017

Beverley Friary and Festival of Christmas Weekend - 8th-10th December 2017

A great weekend . Ideal venue for short break , Loads to see and do in Beverley ,thank you for organising a great weekend , lovely start to Christmas.

Even though the weather was cold on our weekend, there was no shortage of things to do in and around Beverley town centre, right on the doorstep of the Friary.

Unique location lovely food great hospitality

The venue and good company and a fun weekend

This was the perfect weekend in the lead up to Christmas. A lovely setting within easy walking distance of all the lovely things which Beverley has to offer. Lovely hosts who helped to make everyone feel relaxed and for the group to gel together. All in all a great weekend with lovely Christmas music and a fantastic and varied buffet On the Saturday night.

The buffet on the Saturday night was great - good choice and amount of food. I would recommend this event as it's a nice relaxed weekend where you can join in as much or as little as you like. The hostel is situated right in the middle of Beverley and everything you need is in walking distance. The guided walk was a great introduction and gave us some good ideas for exploring by ourselves. Oh, and if you like cosy pubs, there is plenty of choice in Beverley!

Great pub meal on the Friday and interesting walking tour on Saturday. Another great weekend away and an introduction to Beverley.

Jacobean Mansion Christmas Party Weekend, Staffordshire - 1st-3rd December 2017

I really enjoyed the whole event I thought it was excellent value for money. I liked the fact we could bring our own alcohol and I thought the food was really nice, the hot drinks and snack available were also great. I enjoyed the workshops available and I am happy I now have a momentum to remind of the weekend. All the Spice members of staff were warm, friendly and welcoming and I would definately book this event again. Thank you.

This was my second year at this event and it was fantastic. I was able to meet up with friends I made last year as well as making new ones this year. Lauren and her team of helpers worked tirelessly throughout the weekend to make sure everyone was fed and watered, that there are varied activities to keep everyone entertained and that everything ran to plan. I stayed at Ingestre Hall a couple of times as a child and I think there's something special about the place and this weekend that helps to release the inner child in all who enter into the spirit of the weekend. A big thank you to Lauren and her team of helpers!

Very organized.

The co-ordinators put a lot of thought into working out a route & keeping us to time.

Ten Pin Pyramid Leeds - 5th October 2017

Bowling always a great night , I like the way the teams are always mixed up.

A great night out.

Emmerdale Studio Experience Tour - 30th September 2017

It was a really great experience. A must do event for any Emmerdale fan.

What a fantastic tour, there was animation, sets, props, special effects, costumes and plenty of old footage to watch. We even saw Annie Sugdens apron! The tour started with clips from its 45 years of being on air, although I missed Amos Brealey in the Woolpack, then moved to the script writing, costumes, props and to look at a couple of real sets. We tried our hand at acting and also editing, I won't be giving up my day job. The tour guide really made the tour by giving a very humorous commentary in each section. A really worthwhile visit for Emmerdale fans and also for those interested in TV and how soaps are produced.

Super YHA well equipped and in a lovely location, fantastic social weekend with plenty to do for those who didn't want to walk. A proper weekend at the seaside!

Back from an amazing and relaxing weekend. Blessed with lovely weather and great company. Scarborough offers plenty to do whether you like serious walking or strolling on the prom with an ice cream. Or maybe indulging in fish & chips and a pint in the pub! Proper traditional seaside fun was enjoyed in bucket-loads!

This was a well orgainsed, friendly event, with a lot of variety and choice. It was an all-round great weekend, and reminded me how much I love being a part of Spice

The youth hostel was the perfect setting for a really great weekend, beautiful weather, Karen was very welcoming and helpful. She worked very hard at organising (and doing most of ) the cooking. This was my first Spice event so I did not know what to expect, but everyone one was very friendly and the walks were lovely. I would recomend this weekend and will be booking more now.

Outdoor Theatre: A Midsummer Night's Dream in Sheffield - 24th August 2017

This was probably the best production we have seen so far from the Pantaloons, they gave a fantastic twist to a Shakespeares much loved comedy. I would certainly go and see this group again. Spice even managed to book the weather too!

Even though it can get cold (just wrap up well) there is something magical about eating/drinking a picnic whilst watching a play performed in an outdoor setting. Brilliant!

Real Ale Trail and Meal - 19th August 2017

Super day out with a great group of Spicers, we managed to find some quieter pubs which meant lots of chat and catch up.

I somehow potted a ball during a game of pool in the pub at Batley!! Loved this train hopping pub crawl. Even though I'm not a real ale drinker I soon found after a few I really enjoyed it. Jonathans insistence on being on the selfies of the girls who were on our train on there way to a night out in Leeds on our way home was hysterical.... Keep up the good work!

The Terrace cafe gave a very welcome refreshment break before the grounds, gardens, church and lake were explored. We even managed a quick boat trip to hear more about the building of the gardens and lake. Great day out!

Always enjoy the quiz at the Parkside Tavern in Leeds. Friendly bunch of people whichever team you end up in and as a mid week event doesn't finish too late when you have to be up early next day for work

A Darker Shade of Murder at The Garrison Sheffield - 9th June 2017

The Garrison roast dinners are the best! The actors were just as good as ever letting us try to guess which of them did it

This was a great event and, although we got it completely wrong, we still had a whale of a time deducing and accusing! The food was great too! The only downside was the disco afterwards; I wouldn't recommend staying for that bit but it wasn't bad enough to ruin the evening.

The murder mystery at The Garrison was a very enjoyable night out. Everyone seemed to have a good time

Tennis Evening in Batley - 8th June 2017

Sunday Lunch at Ripon Spa Hotel - 4th June 2017

Thought last years Sunday lunch at the Spa was great but think it was even better this year. Lovely venue and superb food.

Food was very good and plenty of it. The surroundings were very civilised and pleasant. Sitting outside on the Terrace after lunch having the coffee and chocs was very relaxing (despite the Gardeners noise! All in all a very enjoyable day!

The food was excellent, the staff were very friendly & helpful, the even was well organised, and ran like clockwork

Croquet at Ripon Spa Hotel - 4th June 2017

This was a relaxed and enjoyable way to spend a Sunday. A good mix of people and the mixing up of groups made it very sociable.

The location and grounds were very impressive. The croquet was brilliant, didn't know what to expect and was more than happy with the whole experience, would definitely do it again.

Really great new activity to try, good to try something new on such a lovely sunny day

Spice managed to book brilliant weather for a perfect day playing croquet. We all declared we weren't competitive and would just have fun until the gentleman on the last lawn started moving the balls around!! Fantastic event with great company

Great day, helped by the beautiful weather possibly, but lovely venue.

Great fun!

Inner Hebrides Bank Holiday Sailing Weekend - 26th-29th May 2017

I was apprehensive about the weekend as I didn't know anyone and we were such a small group. It was a fabulous weekend, great boat and incredible scenery. John the skipper was fabulous, we were able to join in as much or as little as we wanted. The food was excellent and we were very well looked after. David (ex spicer member) was also really helpful, he was very patient and taught us a lot. Thanks for a fabulous weekend, lots of fun and laughter. I'm still smiling and will be booking more.

Seahouses Spring Bank Holiday Bunk Barn + BBQ Weekend - 26th-29th May 2017

Excellent co-ordination as always with Lauren. We are always so well fed and looked after. The resort was great and the trip to the Farne islands beyond expectations! I'll miss these weekends

Lauren was an excellent host. Great location.

The setting on the bunk barn is lovely with spectacular views to Bamburgh cattle. The walk leader has a lovely personality, extremely knowledgeable about the area and wildlife. Lauren's catering was outstanding as usual. Many thanks to Lauren and Tony for all your hard work. When are we going next year ? Bank holidays give us the most opportunity to enjoy this place especially as it can be a long journey for some.

Whole weekend was brilliant, good fun and good company! Loads to do in the area - can't wait til the next one!

A great itinerary with 2 really good walks and a visit to the Farne islands. As usual a great hosting job from Lauren!

A great weekend away in a superb location. So much to see and do in the area to suit walkers and non-walkers alike. Bamburgh Castle a reasonable 3 mile walk away and amongst others, Alnwick Castle a short drive away. The Inner-Farne boat trip is a must do to get up close to the nesting birds - just make sure you wear a hat and waterproof coat in case of attack from the birds protecting their nests! We were also lucky enough to encounter the seals and even a pod of dolphins came out to play. Amazing!

Serenity Weekend - 19th-21st May 2017

How informative, engaging, emotional (I would not say that it was 'fun' in the sense of the word fun as it was a serious event). It is such a shame that this event was the last one, as it was truly enlightening and everything I would have expected and wished for. Excellent! if it ever starts running again, I would be the first to put my name down to go again. Well worth the value.

Saturday Shuffle at Cosmopolitan Hotel Leeds 6th May 2017

The National Coal Mining Museum Tour and Lunch 29th April 2017

I had been wanting to visit the mining museum for years and finally got there thanks to Spice, it was a great experience and well worth the wait.

Excellent afternoon out, great company rounded off with delicious food...

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole event. I was made to welcome from the start, the tour was very informative and interesting followed by a nice lunch and then a wander round the rest of the museum at a leisurely pace....thank you for a great day out. I'm a new member and so far I'm very impressed with all aspects of Spice, for example I feel included and not just a face in a crowd, great choice of events, timely manner of communication, friendliness of everyone especially the hosts....thank you.

Spice Curry Club visits Aagrah Leeds 28th April 2017

very good value for money re food

The Aagrah never fails to disappoint with the amount and quality of food. The staff were very efficient and the atmosphere lively.

Great fun, educational. Good food and good company

It was lots of fun and very well organised.

Newcastle Easter Weekend 14th-17th April 2017

I thought there was a good balance between organised events and "free" time. Very much liked the mix/variety of evening events. Always felt the Jonathan and Jill were "loosely" keeping an eye on everything. All in all a brilliant week-end.....

To say that our hosts have only been "in the job" for such a short time, I can only say that I was beyond impressed with their communication and organising and organising skills. They were both so friendly at pleasant, yet took it all in their stride and made our weekend really enjoyable.

This event was a good mixture of local history, socialising and fun. The hotel was excellent, and having a view from my room over the river Tyne and it's bridges was a real bonus. The coordinators were helpful and friendly.

Very enjoyable.

Brilliant weekend, it was really well organised by Jonathan and Jill. It was great fun and I met some lovely people. I would certainly recommend it to anyone

Footgolf at Woodkirk Valley 9th April 2017

Spice couldn't have booked better weather, who would have thought kicking a football 100yrs could be so difficult and so funny. Great event with a couple of the holes very challenging good job there was no time limit.

Great fun event. Will definitely do it again. No real sporting skill needed. Just strong stomach muscles to cope with all the laughter.

Ramble: Trotters Gill 9th April 2017

This was a great walk with a bit of a challenge crossing the lime stone that made it more interesting and rounded off nicely with a well deserved drink at the local pub.

Pie Meal at The Hop Leeds 8th April 2017

Great event in a private area with excellent food and service. Lots of fun.

Flight Simulator Experience 8th April 2017

This was a great day being the captain of a 737 getting to take off fly and land the plane was a great experience, only one little bit of advice, there are about 10 people who go on this and everyone gets a fair amount of time at the controls, so if u quite far down the list you can be waiting a while so i recommend you take a book, magazine or something to occupy yourself til your turn.

Get Together at York Tap 7th April 2017

Good event for meeting local members and arranging other events together

Ten Pin Pyramid Leeds 6th April 2017

A great evening, the pyramid aspect meant you didn't need to feel bad for not been a fab player, good friendly fun. As a new member I am finding it a lovely fun and relatively easy way to make some new friends. Events are good value too. Thank you Spice Jonathan and Jill.

An enjoyable night out

The walk wise guides were very good they made the walks fun and pointed out local landmarks.

Fab walks , lovely view from hotel lounge , good company

Peddler Market in Sheffield 3rd March 2017

Hi all !Peddler market is every first Fri-Sat of the month. Since its getting more and more popular among Sheffield people I would really appreciate if you could add this event more often- especially during summer months, because Kelham Island is becoming one of those Sheffield areas where things are actually happening (in terms of art and music). We were not lucky with a weather ,which was very disappointing apart from that- fab event and the pub we went to afterwards is one of the most popular in the city at the minute. Really enjoyed it !

Ten Pin Pyramid Leeds 2nd March 2017

Very friendly, great value, well organised, and a lot of fun.

Sunday Brunch at The Rhubarb Shed Sheffield 26th February 2017

Good food, good conversation in a relaxed atmosphere.

Workshop: Reiki First Degree 25th February 2017

Although I had to drive for two hours to get to the Manchester Spice office, it was worthwhile. It was a very good, easy and relaxed training day.

One of the best parts of the training was the hands on practice, which shows individuals what its like to do Reiki but also what its like for the person you are practicing on. Providing an awareness of how personal the transition of Reiki is from yourself to others.

Well worth the two hour drive across the country! Perhaps, a session could be set up to take place in the east, York or middle of the north, Leeds way. I consider that would offer this training and the wellbeing days to others who perhaps cannot drive or afford to travel....Just a thought for inclusive activities for all.

Rhubarb Farm Tour in West Yorkshire's Rhubarb Triangle 25th February 2017

The knowledge of Janet at Oldroyds- and how she presented everything...informative and fun.

Surprisingly very enjoyable event

really unique experience. very knowledgeable speaker, learned a lot. Location good for people travelling a distance. Unicorn pub very handy for refreshments across from the farm.

The food was wonderful , staff excellent and so very helpful , definitely book the venue again for an eveing , thank you Jonathon.

Forest of Bowland Weekend 24th-26th February 2017

I thought the venue was a good selection for this time of year, given that the Event was not sold out. I think the YH was a little small, and had limited facilities in comparison to other venues later in the year. The fixed price Friday fish night was a good choice, and avoided complicated "Settling up" at the end of the meal.

Dinner Shuffle at Harvey Nichols 21st February 2017

Very good value and the peppermint tea was a lovely bonus ,great evening as always on shuffle thank you Jill

How to Become a Love Magnet 19th February 2017

Maureen is warm and skilled at what she does. She readily adapted to all the needs of the group and made the subject matter comfortable for all who attended. I was glad to meet her.

The Spice Yorkshire Winter Ball 18th February 2017

Returning from some time away to find that Spice is just the lifeline needed and nothing is too much trouble. Was feeling a little worried about returning but that feeling went as soon as I walked through the door. Enjoyable evening, roll on the next event!

Loved the little "touches" for example, the favors on the tables and also the decoration. Had a brill time. It's a great occasion to dress up, eat (and drink!) well and have a good bop!

Good organisation and great venue

A lovely room with beautiful decorations which made it feel special. A lovely mix of people too.

Jill and Jonathon worked very hard all eve

Thank you for a lovely evening at the ball in Leeds..The hotel , staff and food was excellent.

Fabulous evening

Excellent hotel, food, DJ and event organisation. Brill night out!

Another excellent spice ball.

Dinner Shuffle at Bill's Bar Sheffield 16th February 2017

The restaurant was fantastic and I knew some members so that made me feel comfortable but I enjoyed meeting members I hadn't seen before too. Would love to do it again but can you do one in Worksop where I live there are great restaurants here too!

I thought the quality of food was very good at Bill's (better than Silverstone's say). Atmosphere and service good too. A good venue.

The organisation of the event and the friendliness of everyone there.

Top of the Pops Night at the Mercure Sheffield 28th January 2017

Been on one of these before and absolutely love them

For the cost it was a fun evening, liked the videos shown at the same time. Good selection of music for dancing, food well presented and service pretty good once they got going. Venue well suite to such an event and at least they have a large enough dance floor.

Nice meal. More events like this with dancing pls (all agreed!) Everyone enjoyed it.

The top of the pops night was a really good event. The food was nice, lovely atmosphere, great dance music with all the old videos. Really enjoyed it. More of the same please!!

Ten Pin Pyramid in Chesterfield 17th January 2017

A laid back, no pressure evening. I've never played the game before and I'm a complete novice to bowling. It didn't matter one jot. In fact the worse the shot, the funnier it was. Loved it. Spice events co-ordinators are a welcoming bunch of people.

Newish group of people all got on really and enjoyed bowling as a group using this format
