£4 Advance from www.moles.co.uk £4 before 12 / £5 after 12.

If this is not your thing, maybe you would like to try Circo Bar (which is next-door to Slug & Lettuce too), where you can expect to find DJ's playing a variety of Soul, Disco, Beats, Balearic inspired beats and summer time treats and House classics, depending which DJ is on-duty on the night.

£5 entry after 10.00pm.

Time again to try-out (if you already haven't) your glitz just before Christmas really takes hold....!

With just 16 days to go till Santa visits, how about a night (and early morning) of music and dance in two hot-spots of Bath.

Meet-up at the Slug & Lettuce at 7.30pm and converse with friends with a glass of bubbly and enjoy the resident DJ, hopefully not playing too many Christmas songs, before we head-off to Moles (or Circo Bar) circa 10.00pm to dance and be merry till the early hours of Sunday morning.

So what are you waiting for... for a great pre-Christmas evening of meeting up with friends, having cool cocktails, chilled wine, cold beer and great conversation(s) RSVP ASAP to get your name on the guest-list....!!

Will anyone be brave enough to wear the 'Christmas' jumper...???

Pencil To Paint
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:
Line, measurement and proportion
Tonal value
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
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

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.
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.
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.
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.
