Join us at the magnificent Armathwaite Hall Hotel and Spa in Cumbria for the UK Spa Associations Spring Networking event. Set in the secluded splendour of 400 acres of deer park & woodland, bordered by the beauty of Bassenthwaite Lake and framed by the dramatic Skiddaw Mountain and Lake District fells. Armathwaite Hall, a former stately home is delighted to host this prestigious event.

Bringing you two informative and thought-provoking speakers. This time around our session speakers will be Danielle Alen, Director of Spa & Hotel at Lifehouse Spa and Hotel and Stu Henshall owner of The Alternative Kitchen.

Lifehouse is a Spa that has always strived to be at the forefront of the industry by exploring new ways to maximise their facilities and services. This year they will become the first spa in the UK to be ‘Dementia Friendly’. With dementia now the lead cause of death in England and Wales, it is something that will sadly affect many of us. As a designated place to go for relaxation and recuperation, a spa should be able to welcome those living with dementia, as they would those going through cancer. This is something very close to their hearts and they are passionate about equipping their staff with the tools to be able to fulfil their guests’ needs at every level. The response to their training so far has been fantastic and they are very excited to be working towards their dementia friendly status this year. Danielle will explain why they chose to launch something so different, what the impact has been like from the industry, press and consumer, how she makes sure that her spa leads the way in new initiatives and why it’s so important for Spa Operators to look for USP's in this competitive market.

Stu Henshall is a plant based food and beverage consultant and will be speaking about how he believes the surge in popularity for a plant based diet isn’t just the latest food trend but the future of food, our planet, and wellness.  He will be discussing the link between food and disease and how providers of nutrition in establishments can give a full package of wellness by revaluating their food offering.  If you are what you eat, then eat smart!

There will also be an opportunity to tour the Spa at Armathwaite Hall and to explore the beautiful grounds alongside a delicious lunch and the usual networking opportunities enabling you to meet up with old friends and make new industry contacts.

We look forward to seeing you in April.

Special Hotel Rates available for the event.
