Red Hat ‘meetings’ are called Hoots. We always have a Hoot on the evening of the second Wednesday of each month. We often add other outings, sometimes full day trips at the weekend, or midweek.
Hatters can organise Hoots too! Just let Queen Tess know what you are planning.

OCTOBER 2017 – Wednesday 11 October and Thursday 12th October
- Rutland Cookery School masterclass! This is a really hands-on cookery evening at the new Rutland Cookery School within Ashwell Business Park (Oakham), recently set up by chef Robin Stewart.
- Highlights from Robin’s career include a stint with the renowned chef Anton Mosimann at the Dorchester Hotel, and time in the Michelin-starred kitchens of the Connaught Hotel, under Michel Bourdin. Robin has also developed recipes for Waitrose, M&S and Sainsbury’s. This is a fantastic opportunity to pick up tips from a hugely experienced chef!
- Cost is £35 to include a demonstration of what we’re going to cook, the ingredients and time to cook it ourselves (with help if needed!) and of course time to taste and enjoy the results.
NOVEMBER 2017 – Wednesday 8 November
- Gin night! Artisan gin is all the rage and we have one of the most exciting distilleries not too far away in Leicestershire.
- Our tour of Burleighs in Loughborough starts with a welcome gin’n’tonic, lasts about 90 minutes during which we’ll become expert in distillation, history, botanicals etc and ends with a tasting!
- And even if you’re driving and so cannot do more than taste on the night, we also have the opportunity to buy a bottle or three to take home.
- Maximum number for this trip is 30 Hatters.
- The cost is £20: book with Tessa as soon as you like.
