WOW: Women of the World Festival

This is one for those of you looking for a slightly different way to spend Mother’s Day weekend. In the year that marks the 100th anniversary since women got the vote in the UK, and the year that the #MeToo movement shook the world, the Women of the World festival 2018 brings an incredible line up of speakers championing females and celebrating all that has been achieved. You and Mum can expect to immerse yourselves in a day of debates, performances and activism – that brings together artists, writers, politicians, comedians and more. For a Mother’s Day with a twist, book your passes here.

We’ve saved one of the sweetest treats until last…a Mother’s Day experience that starts with chocolate martinis (yes, really!). You and your Mum will enjoy a two hour, indulging chocolate crafting course led by Master Chocolatiers in London. Tuck into more cocoa samples than you could ever imagine and craft your very own flavoured chocolate slabs, experimenting with flavours like orange, fig, mint and more! You’ll both leave this experience with a discerning chocolate palate, and a scrumptious goodie bag with at least 15 of your own handmade chocolates inside. Book your tickets here.
