Who's on the team?
The founder of The Summer House Weekend is Tobias Fauntleroy Slater, who previously co-founded White Mischief and Kinky Salon London.
Newman Alexander (formerly London Faerie) of Sacred Pleasures designs and curates the programme of workshops, talks and individual sessions with Tobias. Newman's aim is to create an expansive space where participants can relax, leave their everyday worries behind and step fearlessly into open-hearted community. Newman says: "I adore these country house events because they're places where we can love each other in whatever way feels right to each of us. They are tender, warm and magical while still being playful, creative and damned HOT!"
Other collaborators have included:
Rumpus Productions, curating and hosting the Saturday night party as well as providing production management to the event;
Irreverent Dance, curating and hosting the movement workshops;
Zoe Margolis, curating the talks strand;
Dr Clive's Circus, hosting the Friday night cabaret
Margot Magpie, curating the craft workshops;
Morning Glory, running sober dance parties for early birds on Friday and Saturday
In addition the team includes a wide range of people with experience in everything from event lighting and performance to roleplay and storytelling to spirituality and self-development.
