Meet Up @ Marstons

Three WiRE women are working with Marston’s Brewery to run a monthly mixed networking group in Burton-on-Trent.

Elaine Pritchard, Cheryl Morris and Liz Strama (along with good friend of WiRE, Tilley Bancroft) launched MeetUp@Marstons on February 16, 2017, at the Marston’s Brewery Visitor Centre and almost 60 men and women attended.

Future meet-ups will take place on the third Thursday of each month, from 6pm to 8pm..

Elaine said: “We don’t plan to have any membership fees, or any exclusions. There won’t be any formal 60 second introductions. but it will be a chance to meet businesses of all sizes and enjoy a chat, a drink and a bite to eat in relaxed surroundings.

“We felt there was an opportunity in the Burton area to launch this type of no-pressure business gathering with a social feel and we’re thrilled to be working with Marston’s Brewery to bring it to the home of brewing!”

The launch event was attended by businesses from Derby, Lichfield, Tamworth and Newcastle-under-Lyme as well as Burton.

Tickets cost £10 and are only available through Eventbrite. The cost includes food from local small business Abbots Catering Company and a drink from the Marston’s bar. There is also unlimited tea and coffee.

Tickets for the next event, on Thursday March 16,  can be booked online at
