Gather and Grace opened the doors to their tasting room for our Derbyshire December Connect Reception and treated us to a mini Christmas dinner to get the festive belly started!

Guests were welcomed with Gin and Cranberry cocktails followed by a delicious parsnip and apple soup. We then moved on to the main course of salmon pin wheels and a delicious and creative Christmas dinner turnover then, to finish we enjoyed a gooey, home made brownie. The room was buzzing with the welcoming and friendly atmosphere that is now often associated with KuKu Connect Receptions with a great mix of business focussed and friendly conversations with familiar and new faces.

The Connect Receptions always follow the same format which is no pitches, no presentations and no push which allows for authentic conversations and organic relationship building. We were delighted to welcome many new members on the evening – Melanie Waldron, Emily White, Ian Francis, Ronnie Harris, Chantelle Choudhury, Jaz Greer and rebecca Emma Hutton. Our Derbyshire Connect Receptions take place on the first Wednesday of each month, 6-8pm and always at a different venue.
