Creating Content for Digital Marketing
Free of Charge thanks to the European Regional development Fund, Bath and North East Somerset Council and other members of the Enterprising West of England consortium
Please Note this workshop is restricted to businesses based in Bath and North East Somerset.  If you are based elsewhere please call us to discuss how else we may be able to help.
This workshop is for businesses looking to grow, raise awareness or enhance their digital presence, through creating compelling content online.
Marketing in the digital space offers many opportunities to business, but poorly planned and written content can do more harm than good to your business. Learn how to write inspiring and relevant content for variety of digital marketing channels such as websites, blogs, social media and email.
We will look at how writing the right things in the right place at the right time can help your website move up the Google rankings and be discovered by organic searches on line.
We’ll discover how powerful a blog on your website can be to build your presence and influence online. Blogging not only builds up a library of valuable information resource for your business, that can be shared and repurposed across Social Media and other marketing channels, but a website with a blog attracts 97% more traffic.
You will take away some simple, actionable strategies to get your business noticed online; starting with setting some intentions to move forward at this workshop.
The outcome of the workshop is to understand how Digital Marketing is much more than just a website; but using its potential to bring in, and retain, customers to grow your business. 
Please note that whilst this workshop will provide help with understanding how you can use your content on Social Media we do not go into detail on any particular Social Media platform or how to manage them.

Ancient Mystic Healing Circle
Metaphysical Meetup in Bath
7pm - 9pm


Sometime giving time to allow change does not always mean that change will happen, however if there is a shift in energy change will happen.
If there is an area of you life that is stuck i.e money, relationships, career or a deep calling for something new but not sure what it is, this maybe the circle for you. The work involves invoking change, growth and healing through Ancient Celtic Mysticism. Releasing ancestral repetitive patterns that no longer serve, or traumatic experiences and stagnant energies. Anywhere there is sickness or disease no matter what the cause. Open the doors and let in the light to heal release and transform to a new version of yourself. Any questions just let me know. Jane

Hi,

Badminton is booked for 8:00pm on Thursday 1st November at Kingsdown Sports Centre, Portland Street, BS2 8HL. All are welcome, it's a 60 minute long session and we may head to a nearby pub afterwards.

Please let us know if you are going to attend by Wednesday at the latest. we would prefer that we have at least 4 players, otherwise we may cancel the booking.

Note: When arriving at reception you will need to say that you're attending a badminton session booked by Nicholas. Also, they may require that you to sign up for a (free) Everyone Active membership.

Nicholas /
Matt ([masked])

FAQ

Q: How does it work?
A: It's pretty informal, but we would like to know in advance if you are going to attend. (If, by the day before the booking, fewer than 4 people say they are going, we may cancel the booking.) On the day, just turn up in the sports hall with your kit at the booked time and we'll play as many games as we can in the time, rotating through the available players after each one. Usually we play doubles up to 11 points, but this can vary depending on the number of players. Afterwards, we often go to a nearby pub afterwards for a drink and a chat.

Q: How often do you play?
A: Usually every two weeks.

Q: How much does it cost?
A: Between £1 and £5 per session, depending on how many people turn up, but usually between £1.50 and £2.50.

Q: What is the standard of play?
A: This is hard to specify, but it's mixed and generally not high, so a novice shouldn't find it too challenging.

Q: How many courts are booked?
A: Only one court is booked, but if there are more than 4 people we play to 11 points (rather than the usual 21) to allow waiting players to get a game more often.

Q: Who can attend?
A: It is open to all (and usually has a combination of men and women). Come along and see if it suits you.

Q: I'm new to the group, how can I find you?
A: Sometimes the expected court number will be specified in advance, otherwise if you don't fancy asking around, you can let us know you'll be coming and we can arrange to meet you.

Q: What parking facilities are there?
A: The sports centre has its own car parks and there is usually on-street parking nearby. There are also bicycle stands outside the entrance.

Q: Can I just turn up for the pub afterwards?
A: Of course, though we don't always go and the choice of pub can vary so it's best to let us know in advance.

Q: Do I need my own racquet?
A: Preferably, though you can hire one from the sports centre (currently for £2 with £5 deposit). For newcomers, someone may be able to bring a spare on request.

Q: What rules do you play with?
A: We usually play using 'rally point scoring', i.e. points are scored regardless of who serves, and when the serving side loses a rally, the serve changes immediately to the opponents. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badminton#Scoring_system_and_service.

Pencil To Paint: Sep - Dec 2018
Eventbrite.co.uk
26th September - 5th 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 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. 
The theme for this particular 10 week Pencil To Paint course will be 'still life' and we will look at how artists from Caravaggio to Cezanne used tonality, form and colour to compose their paintings.
Topics will include:
Mark-making
Line, measurement and proportion
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 - 18:00
Wednesdays:  26 September; 03, 10, 17, 24 ,October; 07, 14, 21, 28 November; 05 December  - 10 x 1.5 hour sessions)
