Leading Ladies is our fast-growing network for like-minded professionals. A varied calendar of events for new business development or out-of-the-ordinary client entertaining.
Launched in August 2011, Leading Ladies now welcomes guests from all business sectors. We like to think it’s one of the most popular (and glamorous!) networks of its kind in the city.
Alongside enjoying great performances, meeting the stars, learning from guest speakers, trying out new venues, getting to know our clients better and bumping into other Leading Ladies from the business world, we also raise funds for the amazing work of Hippodrome CREATIVE.
Isn’t it time your name was on our guest list?

Leading Ladies at Purecraft Bar & Kitchen Thu 10 Mar 2016
Join us in the cellar at partner venue Purecraft Bar & Kitchen for our first ever beer tasting and food pairing event hosted by TV presenter, journalist & beer sommelier, Marverine Cole.
Come and meet other like-minded women in business, or entertain your clients discovering what goes into a perfect hand-crafted beer and what’s best to eat with it. Our tasting tutorial and food pairing will be led by Purecraft’s Martin Hilton who will introduce us to craft beer, its history and styles.
Together we’ll learn how to taste knowledgeably, pour confidently, and integrate beer with food creatively. At Purecraft Bar & Kitchen the emphasis is on the best locally sourced produce turned into great beer food with a modern twist.
Marverine will be sharing her expertise as a multi-award-winning beer writer and so-called beer ‘evangelist’ championing beer for women. Plus she’ll update us on current trends in the craft beer marketplace. It will be a fascinating insight from one of the UK’s leading female beer experts.
Tickets cost £35 to include a welcome beer, tasting tutorial & food pairing.
