The congregation of Inspiration 2021 Event cancelled

I have made the difficult decision to cancel The Congregation of Inspiration until further notice. I hoped with all my heart that this wouldn’t have to happen, but with so much uncertainty around live events and I feel that this is the only possible decision I can make.

I so want to bring you all a day of utter magic and to allow this wonderful community a moment to be together. We’re utterly heartbroken but will continue dreaming and scheming for the next CI, so that we are ready for the most incredible day, whenever it is able to happen.

The day brought the incredible community together to experience new ideas, creative inspiration and make new connections. But don’t just take our word for it…


The Congregation Of Inspiration 2018


The first Congregation Of Inspiration took place in 2018 and was the manifestation of years of dreaming, for a way to bring this utterly brilliant community together in one place, filled with inspiration, support and magic.

Bathed in colourful light twinkling with the sparkle from the disco ball and with colourful streamers overhead, over 100 small businesses joined together to hear from the likes of Julie Deane (Cambridge Satchel Co), Molly Gunn (Selfish Mother) and Otegha Uwagba (author). Here’s a taste of the magic…


Conversations of Inspiration LIVE

In 2019 we ran a LIVE tour of our podcast, Conversations of Inspiration, visiting cities across the UK and interviewing entrepreneurs from the area. We hope to visit many more locations in the future!
