What's going on?
Recorders… massage… beer swap… Zumba… networking… jam making... talks… competitions… book swap… granny squares… yoga… photography walk… business networking... sports day… IT WON’T HAPPEN WITHOUT YOU!
We’d love for you all to come forward and offer your expertise or passion for a workshop or activity at this year's Tea & Tents to make it a weekend to remember.
You're in control: you choose the size of group you're comfortable with, tell us what you need from us to make it happen (inside/outdoors, electric, water, helpers etc) and how much you will need to charge participants (or if it’s free).
If you want to team up with other Tenters then please do. Why not run a competition as a federation, a singalong as a sisterhood or a make and take with your mum?
If you would be interested in running a workshop please let us know now by completing this survey.
The deadline for submitting a workshop has now passed BUT if you have a really clear idea and want to put it forward get in touch and we'll see what we can do!
If you’d like to offer a talk, then Speakers Corner is your thing, see below.
Calls for volunteer helpers throughout the weekend will follow once we know a bit more about what the programme is going to look like.
Speakers Corner needs you!
An essential ingredient in to the recipe of all that is Tea and Tents is Speakers Corner. Previously we’ve had everything from keeping chickens and marketing tips through to surviving domestic violence and dementia care. It’s as varied as you are!
We’d like to invite you to send us a rough overview your topic of choice (about 50 words or less) by 7 May (also extended deadline) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Themes of talks this year will be along the lines of (but certainly NOT limited to);
Following review of said submissions, expect us to come back to you after a couple of weeks to confirm the get go for your slot at Speaker's Corner. Please note talks are limited to 30 minutes including Q & A with some lovely helpers on hand to ensure that everyone's time is divided fair and square.
Never spoken before but fancy giving it a go?! What better way to give yourself a debut than to lots of friendly cheerleaders supporting you through each minute!? Many sisters have come before you and found such courage standing at the Speaker's Corner. Be one of those sisters, too!
We look forward to welcoming your entries to our inbox and arranging a Programme to rival our Hyde Park counterpart!
I can’t imagine my Summer without 500 awesome
Things to note
When we put the programme together, we'll double check against any Walesby activities you've prebooked (available soon) to make sure it doesn't clash so don't let that hold you back. Also, be sure to let us know if you're leaving on Sunday so we don't schedule your slot when you're not there!
If you aren't able to offer an activity or talk, we need your help volunteering for the weekend! It's a great way to meet lots of people and throw yourself in at the deep end to make the most of the weekend. We ask that everyone offers a couple of hours between Friday and Monday to help it run smoothly.
Thank you in advance for helping to make Tea & Tents 2016 the fabulous experience we are sure it will be! xx
