We Free Things of The Bear We Are...
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
7pm


December 2nd.... Its now 2 days into the festive month... and by now you have probably heard too many Christmas songs already... so are you ready for some more conversation by candlelight...???

Lets eat, drink and be merry by candle-light at The Bear, 6-10 Wellsway, Bath BA2 3AQ... and experience three free things.

On arrival, you will receive a complimentary glass of bubbles, (I guess this will be Prosseco, but I'm going to push the management for the proper stuff) followed by free wine at the dinner table, one bottle of red or white or rose per three people - and maybe one or two or three extra ones ;-) ;-) and then followed by free-flowing conversations while we tuck-in to a three-course festive feast, which if you want to... you can carve your own roast of your choice.

The cost... including the service charge will be £32.00. Please note, there is no cost reduction should you wish to have only two courses, so if you don't want a starter or sweet course, share it with others.... :-)

For those of you who are interested in attending this great event, I'm planning to get the full amount of £32.00 from you by the 25th November so that, on the evening you need only to buy what drinks you may wish to purchase directly from the Bar. Anyone not paid by the 25th will be removed from the list to allow anyone on the waitlist to join us.

I will also need you to pre-order your food choices, as there will be no option on the night to change your mind and.... no option for anyone to turn-up on the night unexpected and ask to see if I can get the Chef to squeeze another one in... Sorry, he is bigger than me....! Lol!!. So when you RSVP, please message me with your food choices by referring to the menu below and tell me which course you would like, eg. Starter S2, Main M1 & Sweet S3.

I should also point out, that once you have paid and you have to back-out for whatever reason, it will be your responsibility to try and find a replacement to take your place, but as this event is limited to 28 dinners, there maybe a few people available on the waitlist to approach if this were to happen. If you are unable to find a replacement, then I will do my best to get you a refund, but I offer no guarantees that this will happen.

So in summary.... £32.00 for a 3-course dinner including bubbles, wine and great conversation and laughter... what's not to like...???? Get RSVP'ing ASAP to get your name on the guest-list... oh... and get you Christmas glitsy dresses on... Gentleman, its a trouser and casual shirt night... no chino's or jeans or t-shirts please, but if you want to wear a dress, that's up to you... Ha! Ha! Ha!

Dinner will be served at 8.00pm sharp. So don't be late.

If your driving, there is limited parking to the rear of The Bear, but parking can be found in the adjacent Bloomfield Avenue.... If your coming in from afar, via public transport, you can get the number 3 or 4 bus from the bus station and both stop right outside The Bear, or there are taxis....!!!

See you on the 2nd...... :-)

PS Anyone attending this event, will get a 10% off voucher for use at The Bear in January - March 2018, so don't forget to bring it along to the next 'Dinner by Candlelight' event in early part of 2018.

The Bear festive menu is as follows:-

Pencil To Paint
Eventbrite.co.uk
27th September - 13th December


“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This ten week course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
Topics will include:
Mark-making
Line, measurement and proportion
Perspective
Tonal value
Notān
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 to 18:00
Wednesdays  27 September; 04, 18 October; 01, 08, 15, 22, 29 November; 06, 13 December 2017
Membership - Bath Business Partnership
Eventbrite.co.uk
12th February - 2nd January


This is not a one off event. Membership is £600 per year and can be payable annually. This includes 4 dinners per year with guest speakers from the political and business world at each dinner.  There will also be an opportunity for each dinner to be sponsored. 
Bath needs small and medium size companies to prosper; they are the backbone of our economy. Bath Business Partnership has been established to promote the interests of businesses within Bath.
We believe it is vitally important that our politicians understand the wide range of issues confronting businesses. I hope you will become a member of the Bath Business Partnership and through meetings with the people that influence our business community from both the political and business world that you will take the opportunity to acquaint them with your company’s positions.
You will have an opportunity to express your views on the way government treats small to medium businesses, what restricts their growth and how the future wealth generators of the country are affected by legislation.
The Bath Business Partnership will also provide an exclusive forum for companies to promote their products and services and to network with other business people to share expertise and knowledge.
We will be seeking to appoint founding patrons to the club that are successful local business people as well as local members. 
For more information, please contact Léonie Spencer directly at bathbusinesspartnership@gmail.com

WHAT WILL MEMBERSHIP INCLUDE?
There are 4 high quality dinners per year in Bath. These will be held at prestigious locations. Club membership includes all food and drink with no extra charge, and the menus and bar are of a high standard commensurate with members inviting their clients, family or personal guests. There is no fundraising of any nature at the dinners.
WHO ARE THE SPEAKERS?
We have agreements from a number of high profile speakers from the political and business world to attend future dinners. These include:
11th May Dinner - Chris Skidmore - Member of Parliament (MP) for Kingswood, South Gloucestershire and Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Chancellor of the Exchequer. He is a regular guest on BBC political programmes, such as The Daily Politics, and sits on the Commons Select Committee on Education.
September 2017 - To be announced
December 2017 - To be announced
It would be helpful to know who our members would find it useful to hear from so we can take this into account when planning  future speakers.
CAN MEMBERS GET INVOLVED?
There is always plenty of time to ask questions and have discussions with our attending guests and politicians. There will be opportunities to sponsor dinners and become a patron.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE SUBSCRIPTION MONIES?
All proceeds after the costs of the events etc. go to Bath Conservative Association. We really believe that the Conservative Party is the Party for Business, and are very proud of this.
