October and November Salons

Dear Sophisticated Ladies

Victorious Endeavours remains utterly committed to the pursuit of fun with a nod to adult curiosity. Knowledge is power and we can frankly seldom have enough of this! I am delighted to give you details of the next two Salons: Monday 24 October and Tuesday 22 November. The Salons are relaxed intimate affairs, carefully planned to ensure you all feel comfortable and are seated with fellow sophisticats with whom you have some common ground.  You will feel suitably spoilt and pampered as this is terribly important to me!

 For this autumn I have decided to introduce an element of provocation; guests who will bring new ideas and challenge us to think differently. Ignorance, in the true sense of the word, simply fails to arm the contemporary sophisticat when entering into intelligent discourse. Sophistication must surely have an intellectual edge if one to going to be able to raise a meticulously plucked eyebrow convincingly with a teasing level of menace!

 Victorious Endeavours Salons will take place at Woods Brasserie in Cardiff Bay (opposite the Mermaid Quay car park). The early evening slot of 6.30 – 8.30 pm and the £25 ticket price remain the same as before. I do hope you will be intrigued enough to join me this autumn! The Salon will continue to offer a two course light supper with welcome drink and coffee (over which our guest’s are engaged in conversation) . To book a place please email: victoriousendeavours@gmail.com  To encourage early booking the following will be offered:  until 15 October  book 2 Salons for £45

 Monday 24 October Kirsty Davies

 Kirsty is a dynamic woman passionate about democracy. She has been a liberal democrat councillor for Llandaff (Cardiff) since 2008 and is the Deputy Director of the Institute for Welsh Affairs. Councillor Davies chaired a Scrutiny Committee investigation in the trafficking of adults for the purpose of sexual exploitation. The Salon will explore the committee’s findings and look at how local democracy works in practice. When planning the programme this was the topic that many of you keen to find more about. My professional background has included work in the areas of rape crisis and domestic violence and this remains an area of interest for me.
