Sam Conniff Allende  
Sam is a multi-award-winning serial entrepreneur, with 10 successful start-ups to his name. His new book Be More Pirate, or How To Take On The World and Win, published by Penguin Random House is a manifesto for each of us to create the sort of Good Trouble the world needs. 'Esmé, I'm loving this more every time I hear from you'


Friday night entertainment  - Rob Comic poet. 'He’s a performance poet, but don’t worry – he’s not shit.' Jimmy Carr

 Saturday's Workshop - Continuing the theme from Friday's workshop, Rob helps us to discover new techniques which allow us to think quickly and outside the box.

Rob Gee
Rob's live act uses a heady combination of poetry, comedy, storytelling and theatre to explore the world of chaos and adventure that lurks behind the veneer of everyday life.  'I’m enormously looking forward to being part of the Be More Pirate experience. There’s an adventurer in all of us and, when we give them confidence, anything can happen.'


Saturday night entertainment



 Sunday's Workshop - Gavin will allow you to creatively explore the freedom to step beyond your boundaries which the previous workshops have given you.

Gavin Mayhew  
'I just get excited chatting to you. I love the idea of using one's own body (or friends) as a reference to participating in arty movement and making something creative and vibrant' He has exhibited his art internationally and has worked on collaborative projects with other artists, dancers, and photographers throughout Europe. Other work focuses on the complexities of the human condition as shown through surreal expressions of people and sculptures, illustrating such emotions as love, hate, greed, wonder, sadness etc, and usually with a story to tell.
