Pearl and Groove is a flourless bakery, founded by Serena in 2013, who named the company after her parents (you guessed it, Pearl and Groove!). All the cakes and treats are gluten free, and some are even sugar, dairy & gluten free.

The ladies that run the shop are constantly getting creative in the kitchen and you will be hit by all sorts of delightful smells as you walk into the shop – so make sure to pop by some time.

Lovely experience learning about Calligraphy and getting the tools to take home. Bonus points for the cake and Prosecco :)

A great location and a wonderful guide. The art is more of a by-product since the focus is on mindfulness and life coaching. It was a thought-provoking session with lovely, like-minded people and a relaxing evening.

Really fun and relaxing glass in the cutest little bakery. Bella was a great instructor who let you get on unless you needed her help. The cake and prosecco were definitely well received and went down a treat. Only issue was space. Quite tight so you'd be knocking elbows with others. Def go back!

I have been to a number of Bella's fab life drawing classes and she is a wonderful host who is warm, friendly and encouraging. The life models are always lovely and the model last night was such a graceful and beautiful lady - she gave us some challenging and interesting poses to draw!

A fun and different way to spend a couple of hours, never done life drawing before but Bella was warm and welcoming and a great tutor. Would definitely go again. Cakes provided by Pearl and Groove were delicious!

Alice was thorough and patient. I would have liked to do more joint up writing so I could understand how the letter formations work in actual words as we predominantly focused on practising individual letters.But all in all - lovely atmosphere, with scrummy cake!

Fabulous workshop in a great venue. Alice was the most generous teacher with a great smile and enormous talent and Pearl and Groove was a welcoming and delicious place to be. Practice makes perfect though, so we also received a canvas bag of goodies.

This is a perfect beginners course Alice was super nice, helpful and fun. 55 pounds isn't cheap, but I think it was worth it as we got to keep the material and it was very personal teaching as there were only 9 people per class. The almost bottomless Pimms and delicious cupcake were a nice extra!

I really enjoyed this calligraphy class. Alice was patient and informative, and the two hours just flew by! My only criticism is that although the cakes looked lovely, all varieties contained nuts so unfortunately I was unable to try one. Overall though a great class!

I always wanted to learn calligraphy.! And Alice was perfect as a teacher. The fact that she was so patient and always leaning over your shoulder and trying to correct you when needed and giving you a few words of encouragement every now and then was amazing. The place and cakes were amazing!

Alice was brilliant! No stuffiness or pretentious air. She clearly genuinely loves calligraphy! Everything was explained clearly and we found Alice extremely approachable, patient and kind. She was also very prompt at replying to any emails I sent in the run up to the workshop. Thank you Alice!

I could not have enjoyed myself more. Not only was Alice an experienced and professional guide, she also built a relaxed environment that meant we all had so much fun. I could not compliment this class more. I hope that she releases additional levels as I will be practising at home and can't wait to learn more!

I really enjoyed the Modern Calligraphy workshop. The tutor, Alice Gabb, was excellent and we learnt the basic principles within the two hour session. It was also nice to get a goody bag and a basic calligraphy kit to take home. The glass of Prosecco and delicious cake helped too! I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to learn a new creative skill.

Obby had me at "Calligraphy, Cakes and Prosecco" and the evening itself more than lived up to expectations. Fun, challenging and creative way to spend an evening. The venue is super sweet (I'll be back for the cakes alone!) and Alice was such a delight and so helpful. Determined to pick up my nib and keep learning!

X-Fit for the mind exceeded my expectations, Charlotte really knows her stuff when it comes to pressures at work, and I left with some practical tools to help access my strengths especially when under pressure.
