All About Girl Tribe Gang

The Launch of Girl Tribe Gang

We had a great night at the launch of Girl Tribe Gang at the Everyman Cinema in Harrogate last week. The brilliant Catherine Gibbin Photography was on hand to snap the evening, so you can see first hand what went on.

Catherine Asta Labbett founded Girl Tribe Gang and it runs across the UK with Tribes in Ilkley, Leeds, Manchester, East London, Bucks and Sheffield – I’m the #TribeBoss here in Harrogate.

Girl Tribe Gang advertises providing an alternative to traditional corporate networking with ‘no suits, no hotels, no corporate nonsense, no breakfast meetings, no sticky name labels, no eating in front of strangers, no board tables, no awkward introductions, no men and no death by power point presentations’.

It was amazing to meet so many Harrogate #GirlBosses doing it for themselves! It was fabulous to finally get to put faces to Instagram names and find out who the real person behind the brand was.

We’re so lucky here in Harrogate to have such a network of supportive women in all walks of business locally and those aspiring to be in business for themselves too.

It was great to find so many like-minded ladies who all work so hard bringing their ideas to life to benefit the local community in so many ways!

What the Launch Party of Harrogate’s Everyman Cinema was like!

One of the super brilliant things about writing this blog is that occasionally I get invited to attend some exciting events!

Everyman Cinema Harrogate Launch Party

Well this event was a great one; I was lucky enough to get invited to the opening of the new Everyman Cinema in Harrogate  – the first new cinema in the town for over 50 years.

Chambord Cocktails – my new favourite 😜

We weren’t really sure what to expect when we arrived at all, but it seemed like a very swish party – there were people from London and everything 😜.

We were greeted with a welcome and an offer of a Chambord Champagne cocktail, which was very nice indeed.

As we looked around there were plenty of waiters on hand sailing around with trays full of filled wine glasses, ladened with bottles of beer or armed with dishes of amazing looking food.

Lots of drinks on offer all night long!

There was a band playing live music and the terrace area was open with people spilling out on to it to have a look at the views over Harrogate.

It was certainly a super party! The food and drink were plentiful and the hospitality was excellent! There was a welcome speech from the Mayor and important folks from Everyman. Everyone agreed the cinema was a welcome addition to the town.

The bar is huge, with loads of seating space dotted all around the 360 degree central bar itself. The terrace is a good size with extra seating outside, it feels about time that Harrogate had an ‘on trend’ bar to enjoy and this felt like it hit the spot.

The Pizza was amazing too!

The fit out was amazing, it’s all art deco, stylishly cinema chic with an easy air about it. I loved the cinema poster wallpaper. It has an air of nostalgia about it whilst still being effortlessly modern!

Look at this for styling! Love it!

We were treated to more Chambord cocktails and an amazingly delicious Halloumi  burger – which was quite simply the best vegetarian burger I have ever tasted (I’m a vegetarian – although not a very good one) can’t wait to go back to enjoy one again!

Then we took a tour of the cinema screens themselves. There are four upstairs which have the trade mark super comfy sofas, foot rests and side tables. Perfect for the on-site made pop-corn to sit on and the little box of really tasty jelly sweets!

Back downstairs there is screen five – which I believe is available for private hire screening.  There is also a fabulous art deco inspired private hire bar and function area which has a great view over the actual art deco of the almost 80 year old Odeon cinema.

It was then time for the films to start, they were showing five different films, we plumbed for ‘Captain Fantastic’ in the luxury of screen two. I settled down in to the softness of my sofa and leant across for my perfect gin and tonic! The way to watch movies in my opinion! It was lovely sitting next to Mr P together on the sofa enjoying a good film on a fantastic screen with amazing sound quality! The movie was great too!

Date Night with Mr P ☺️

The Everyman Cinema is going to be the perfect date night setting – a little bit of luxury and escapism all in one! Can’t wait to head back!
