The Beverley Barn


Come and meet the Loose Women of East Yorkshire

Nearly 30 years ago the idea of a women’s social  group was discussed. Hull at that time was a different world and this informal uplifting chat by the founding members will give you an informative and at times hilarious insight into the business world at that time. These ladies have some amusing politically incorrect stories, bags of personality and business savvy, join us for an entertaining and inspirational night.  You will hear about the challenges of setting up Women In Business and how after a few years the Women Of Achievement Awards was created. Those early years laid the foundation for what is now one of the most popular and well attended business events in the East Riding. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about your group and to meet new and founding members.

This event celebrates our 25th Anniversary, fundraises for a fantastic local charity and is an inspirational story for the business community. Plus it’s a fun social event that connects, promotes and supports local businesses, Women in Business and the community.

Women In Business is a not for profit organisation and the committee are all volunteers, so ticket sale profit, raffle tickets and donations will all go to the charity. Florist Helen Jackson from Rosebud Flowers is providing complimentary dramatic floral centre pieces and the projector is complimentary from Rollits.

Tickets cost £18pp
