Find a Supper Club

Find out where and when is your local underground restaurant/pop up/supper club

It seems that the Supper Club phenomenon is quite a Southern England thing... at least I haven't seen any Supper Club members much further north than Manchester.

Why might that be?

Are we too mean to invite strangers to our home?

There are apocryphal quotes heard from the Scottish such as these two

 

To a visitor to the house "ye'll have had yer tea then?" - meaning 'don't expect free food and drink from us

And a comment on the parsimony of the  Scots "every penny a prisoner".

 

Anyway enough of that - here in Cumbria we are generous spirited and it would be lovely to hear from other potential or actual Supper Club holders in this area!

Sarah!

How wonderful that you also have a Supper Club.. where are you? I'm in North Cumbria near Carlisle....... The Supper Club is a fantastic thing isn't it? What is the name of your Club..... and when is your next event?? Best wishes. Carolyn

Hi Caroline, we have just joined as fellow cumbrians, and I am going to have to amend my blog as I thought we were the only cumbrian supper club - good to find you! Did you have any luck with your Cumbria Life piece?I emailed them two weeks ago about the other, main, side of my business, CoolCrafting, but I haven't heard anything back as yet. I'm off to find out whereabouts in Cumbria you are now. Sarah

We're getting there slowly but surely Oop North. When I first started last September and I began telling people I host a supper club, the typical response was, "What's a supper club?". But now nearly one year on, it's great to see that more people are aware of the movement in Manchester and we have more and more people interested in getting involved.

Hey Debbie - that's great!!!! I agree, the idea just needs to catch on a bit. I'm trying to get one launched in Cumbria - you'd have thought it would be easy, given our great food marketing, but hey ho, taking some time!!! If you get a mo, let me know when your next club is! Thanks for your support - great to hear from you! :)

Oh yes are are terribly hospitabled. I have just written to Cumbria Life to suggest that they run a piece on Secret Supper Clubs. It would be a good place to market your book. Perhaps you could write to the editor too ( female and, I hear, very keen to bring new ideas to the publication).

Here is her email address: mary.ingham@cngroup.co.uk

I wrote last week but no reply as yet. I will re-send at the end of this week. The magazine is a glossy one and is taken by all the hotels etc in the Lake District, so a plug for the book there would be a very useful thing indeed!

Hope this makes sense!

Haha! Yes we need more oop north...I'm sure they are just as hospitable!

I visited Leeds: http://marmitelover.blogspot.com/2011/05/oop-north.html

and would like any opportunities to go to other parts of the country to spread the word about the movement and my book.

Actually, a burgeoning supper club scene in Edinburgh... there are four here. Mine, Charlie and Eveyln's Table, Kitchen Porters, Queen of Tarts...
