5 Newsy Nuggets!

Read all about it! We may be in Lockdown but there's still plenty to shout about, from hot virtual events and foodie goss to something we can book now to look forward to this 2021.

Yoga retreat from home

Yoga Jam is one of the highlight’s of the award-winning yoga studio Flow Tunbridge Well’s calendar but this year they’re taking it online so that we can still come together in the safety of our homes and take that time to prioritise our wellbeing.

There’s a great line-up of teachers with a mix of yoga practices as well as meditation, chanting, poetry and journalling. Kicking off this Friday until Sun 31 Jan 2021. The price is £120 per household so grab the kids and partners to get involved too! Find out more info here.

Plus, if Lockdown has encouraged you to have a complete life rethink and you’re considering a new career then you might want to know about Flow’s highly-regarded course: Understanding Yoga Teacher Training which starts this April 2021 at Flow yoga studio in Tunbridge Wells. Learn from the very best! For full details click here.

Virtual Race

The Castle Virtual Series is back! From Jan through to March, they are hosting three race weekends, to help keep you fit and connected as a community.

The Series will feature 27 races across 7 disciplines: triathlon, duathlon, aquabike, aquathlon, swim, cycle and run only. There really is something for everyone!

The next one is 19-21 Feb 2021. Think you could complete The Polar Bear? Go on, we dare ya! Register here.

Food News

Hot off the press! The judges have raised their Michelin paddles and the results are in. Our favourite rustic restaurant, The Small Holding has been awarded a Michelin Green Star in the Michelin Guide 2021! The award recognises restaurants with a focus on environmental practices. We know The Small Holding work directly with growers, farmers and fishermen, forage in hedgerows and woodlands and grow their vegetables and rear animals. Sustainability is at the heart of everything they do and we couldn’t be happier for them!

That’s not all, The Kentish Hare is one of the 16 new Bib Gourmand restaurants to win the highly sought after distinction. Looking forward to the days we can dine at these destinations again – and in the meantime check out their Take Away options.

Supper Club

Bored? How about joining in with the Alive With Flavour Supper Club? They are a fun, relaxed and informal learning experience with like-minded folk. Now all virtual, they meet on the first Wednesday of each month and share food techniques, food stories and lots of great tips.

The next one is the February Fondue! Supper Club on Wed 3 Feb, 7-8pm. Dust off your fondue set, grab a drink and join in on Zoom for fun with fellow foodies and a talk from a cheese expert from Slate Cheese in Aldeburgh, Suffolk.

Get all the ingredients delivered to your door ready for the virtual event. It’s £31 for a bespoke Fondue Box (easily enough for two people!) and this includes the Zoom session. It’s the closest thing we’ll get right now to Après Ski. Limited availability so be quick! Book now.
