Rum, spice, jazz, magic and networking were all the ingredients for our December Leicestershire Connect Reception.

Over 70 businesses joined us to Connect in the Lexus showroom where KuKu took over! RumBa brought their fabulous and portable tiki style rum hut and provided a selection of rum based cocktails, expertly mixed by Jethro – our new go to for any rum based drink. The Spice Guy wowed us with a cooking demonstration and an endless offering of freshly made treats all using English spices. John Constantine brought his box of tricks mingled amongst the crowds with his close up magic and Smooth Duo brought some class to the evening by performing live jazz throughout the evening, adding that little bit of extra atmosphere. Guests were also invited to test drive a brand new Lexus with a competition for the best driver to win a meal for 2 at Chutney Ivy.

As usual, there was plenty of friendly networking taking place the KuKu way with no pitches, no presentations and no push – just good, old fashioned conversation. At KuKu Connect there is always a friendly welcome and a room full of friendly faces so if you would like to grow your business or have been thinking about coming along to a Connect Reception then make sure you reserve your free first time visitor place by emailing [email protected]
