In the afternoon, everyone will be able to enjoy the luxurious Grove Hotel Spa facilities and relax in the tranquil countryside setting.

Commenting on this LATTE LOUNGE LIVE, Katie Taylor said:

“I am so thrilled to be holding our 2nd Live Latte Lounge with Liz Earle, who is someone I have always admired for many years and i am so grateful to her (and to all of our speakers) for giving up her time to come and help us celebrate our 3rd birthday and raise money for The Eve Appeal too.
I am also exceptionally grateful to The Grove Hotel and our other sponsors Sylk, TENA and Become for enabling us to host this event in such a stunning venue.

Last year we held our inaugural Live Lounge, hosted by Andrea McLane, to celebrate our 2nd birthday and to launch our website and I can’t believe how much we have achieved in such a short space of time.

Like Andrea and myself, Liz has also shared a very similar journey, when it came to being slightly taken by surprise with what we all know now were peri menopause symptoms, so I was absolutely delighted when she agreed to come along and help me host this very special day, knowing how much she could relate to everything we are all striving to do to support women through midlife and beyond.

Not only has our Facebook Group grown from strength to strength in this past year, with over 16,000 members now, but our year old website has also become an incredibly useful and much loved landing page and stand alone resource for all midlife women both on and off our Facebook Group.

In this past year, we also launched, what is now, a very successful Instagram account as well as a monthly Latte Lounge Podcast on Radio Gorgeous, and a regular monthly members newsletter, so we really have become a 360 degree platform supporting so many women in so many different ways.

This could not be possible without my incredible team of admins, our brilliant medical and legal advisors and our wellbeing bloggers and experts who all support the website and our members day in day out.”

Liz Earle said:

“I am delighted to be able to support this Latte Lounge event in aid of The Eve Appeal, The UK's Gynaecological Cancer Research Charity. From mid-life wellbeing and gut health to happier hormones and the menopause, I look forward to sharing the wisest ways I have found to look good and feel better than ever.”

The Grove Spa Director, Jamie Pagan said:

“We are pleased to support such a vibrant Facebook Group on what is their third anniversary. The panel of guest speakers attending on the day, including Liz Earle, will provide specialist wellbeing advice enriching the lives of all fortunate enough to attend the event. We look forward to hosting which will be a great day.”

Sylk Natural UK said:

"Only a third of menopausal women will seek medical help for vaginal dryness. There's still a stigma around women using lubricants and it's time we change that. Events like this shine a spotlight on the Menopause Journey and encourage open and honest conversation around the symptoms which can be hugely debilitating for some. Well done to The Latte Lounge for championing the Mid-Life Woman.”

TENA said:

“Despite the fact that one in three women over 35 experience bladder weakness, it remains a taboo subject. At TENA, we are on a mission to tackle these taboos and inspire women who experience incontinence to feel good about themselves. We’re proud to be partnering with The Latte Lounge to support The Eve Appeal and we’re thrilled to be involved with an event which helps empower women. At TENA, we champion such events and communities that encourage women to feel confident, happy and able to talk openly about bladder weakness.”

Become said:

“We are absolutely thrilled to be working with the Latte Lounge and supporting The Eve Appeal - With over 10 million women struggling with menopause symptoms (including hot flushes and night sweats) at any one time in the UK, we believe it is crucial to transform how modern women talk about, think about and take on their menopause. Events like this absolutely support these goals.”

Female led, FemTech Company Become™ is an innovative brand working to break barriers surrounding the menopause. We provide groundbreaking solutions to alleviate hot flushes and night sweats through our patent-pending Anti-Flush Technology™.

Our research, feedback and reviews prove we are helping to change the lives of women around the world with our range of intelligent, every day apparel.

Our product works in four unique ways:

It cools the skin: The soft, lightweight fabric is made with a flat thread and knitted on a cross section to maximise surface area to transfer warmth away from the body. Tiny channels in the material drive away heat and encourage cooling.
It wicks moisture: The fabric has two innovative coatings. The first works in much the same way as skin. As body heat begins to rise, it works hard to bring the temperature down by evaporating moisture away.

It releases heat back: The second fabric coating absorbs and stores the heat from the surface of the skin during a hot flush or night sweat, then releases it back during the chill that follows. This helps maintain a stable body temperature and lessens fluctuation.
It reduces odour: Our hi-tech fabric also controls odour. Traditionally used for extreme sportswear, an anti-microbial finish creates a barrier between the bacteria and the fabric, immobilising the odour source and locking it in.
