Event description


Part of Bristol Walk Fest

Networking with Freelance Mum at the Farm!

Who says you can't (net)work with children and animals?

We are bursting at the seems with excitement and proud to annouce, we've launched our second group, at Windmill Hill City Farm.

At this meeting, firm favourite and fellow Freelance Mum, Helene Jewell, leads this fab workshop:

Pack up Your Troubles!

Freelance Mums go on holiday and pack all their troubles behind them.

What do you REALLY need to make your business fly? What do you need to leave behind?

In this interactive workshop, Helene Jewell, helps us prioritise what we need for US and our business.

Business focused networking, in a child friendly environment. It’s been going for nearly 3 years and is the Mother of all Networking!

As this event is part of Bristol Walk Fest - we're offering the chance to buy a 'double header ticket' for £12.50, a special discounted rate to attend both this event and Networking with Freelance Mum on Friday 12th May, at our brand new venue, St Augustine's Church, Whitchurch, BS14 0LL.

What is networking with Freelance Mum?

In short, it’s business focused networking, in a fun family environment where children are welcome. Children are encouraged! Yes, it is a bit bonkers, but with careful thought & planning, it works.


Sessions are carefully designed, so both the children & mums needs are looked after. We’ve been running for over 2 years and have got this bonkers mix down to an art!

Speaking of art, there’s always a craft activity for the little ones, provided by Luke Drew This – so you can listen to the guest speaker with ease.


It’s run by mums in business, for mums in business (and yes, we use the word ‘mum’, that’s our default setting, but dads come & are truly welcome).

We’re excited to annouce a brand new group and venue for Freelance Mum – with all the usual features, but in a brand new setting – Windmill Hill City Farm!

Going into our third year of events, we’re delighted to add this venue to the mix, as a regular new secondary group. We’ll be meeting on the fourth Friday of every month in this fantastic venue, which shares our approach and ethos.

So how does it work? Here’s a ‘typical’ meeting.

We know when you’re planning a day with little ones, it’s easy to suffer with ‘nap paranoia’, so here’s what it looks like:

10.00 welcome, chat and fun icebreaker, often led by Brave Bold Drama.
