Friends Around the Table

Offering family carers, and adults living rurally, relaxed and enjoyable creative get-togethers exploring food, culture and nature.


Friends Around the Table sessions are led by professional artists, chefs and food-led practitioners. 

Regular sessions in locations across Suffolk offering opportunities to meet new people, learn new skills and improve your physical and mental wellbeing through inspiring activities.

All workshops are free of charge, no experience is necessary and reasonable travel costs can be provided.

Participants are welcome to attend as many or as few of the workshops as they are able.

‘Lovely to share an activity. I went away inspired to do more’
