The Mumpreneur Conference

The Mumpreneur Conference is an event that will recognise the achievements of our nations mumpreneurs and inspire more women into business. The day has been organised as a way for mums to get together and celebrate one another's achievements, no matter how big or small, as well as providing opportunities for these women to move forward in growing their business in a way that will fit around their family commitments.

What makes The Mumpreneur Conference different from other business conferences and events, is that this is organised by mothers for mothers, ensuring their needs are met, with a suitable day and location to allow business mums from around the country to attend, and with the days itinerary created to ensure the attendees get the best out of the day on both a personal and professional level.

Bishop Auckland Food Festival

The event is one the largest Food Festivals in the North East which last year attracted approximately 28,000 visitors.

Set in the grounds of Auckland Castle the officail residence of the Bishop of Durham and home to the thirteen Zurbar├ín Paintings hang in the Long Dining Room.  Painted between 1640 and 1645, they are of patriarchs, Jacob and his twelve sons. The twelfth son, ‘Benjamin', is not in fact the work of de Zurbur├ín, but of Arthur Pond, an artist, copyist and art critic of the 18th century.

Entry to the Food Festival is free with a park and ride service available from both St Johns School and Bishop Auckland College. 

Come and visit me at the Phoenix Trading Stand in the marquee.
