Future Red Hat Hoots

Red Hat ‘meetings’ are called Hoots. We have a Hoot every month, usually on the evening of the second Wednesday. 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.

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.

DECEMBER 2017 – Wednesday 13 December
Our Christmas Hoot co-incides with Miss Cellaneous’s “18th” birthday party, so we are holding a 1950s night at The Exeter Arms in Barrowden.

One thought on “Future Red Hat Hoots

  1. Hi Tessa
    I hope everyone had a great day at Hampton Court last Sunday.
    Just an idea unless anything else has been suggested for September 13th. How about another game of Petanque at The White Hart Lyddington followed by a super at the pub. Just an idea. Lv DJD xx
