I really cannot believe that it’s been over three weeks since we traveled up to Chester to meet the gorgeous Sarah & team and shoot the photos for our Know Your Normal charity calendar. THREE WEEKS?! It feels both a life time ago and just like yesterday all in one. I’ve been a bit lapse in blogging more about the photo shoot itself due to an impromptu hospital stay because of two fat arse cysts having taken residence on my right ovary, so for that I’m sorry but I promise to fill you in on all the details next week.
As the shoot was coming to a close on the last day there was a bit of a break between lunch and the group shots and so naturally, as girls do, we all got nattering. Very quickly the conversation turned to the calendar itself and what the plan was when it came to launching. I’ll be honest, I hadn’t really thought that far ahead. I knew we’d get them on sale some time in late summer / early autumn, but apart from that my focus had been on arranging (and surviving!) the photo shoot. After lots of excitable chatter, we had decided that this thing we were doing, this great big bold and beautiful thing that had the potential to save other women’s lives, needed much more of a launch than just a quick online update. This calendar needed a party. The party of all parties to show the world what we had achieved and what we aim to achieve over the next year, using beautiful images and real stories of real women to raise awareness of two charities whose work really does save lives every day. And that was that, the girls had spoken, I was to go home and plan a kick arse launch for our kick arse calendar.
And so here I am, writing this. A public invitation to women across the UK to come along and enjoy an evening of all out girl power at the launch of our Know Your Normal charity calendar.
The party will start at 7.30pm on Thursday 15th September at Oakwood House Hotel, Maidstone, Kent after a one hour press conference to which we invite members of the press and bloggers.
Tickets are £25 per head. Women aged 12+ and babes in arms are welcome. Please ensure you bring some ID for the bar.
Your ticket will include…
Upon arrival you will be greeted with a glass of prossecco / non alcoholic fizz.
We will have a range of entertainment and some very special VIP guests.
There will be food provided and a full bar service.
There will be a raffle for which 2 tickets will be included in your entry ticket.
You will each receive A Know Your Normal goody bag filled with KYN bits and bobs as well as some make up and beauty essentials.
Your chance to meet the #KYNCalendarGirls and photographer Sarah Sadler and hear their stories.
And lots more to be confirmed.
You can buy your tickets here.
The calendar itself will also be available to purchase on the evening. If you are going to preorder you can opt to collect your calendar at the party.
More importantly, we invite you to dance to your hearts content, laugh ’til your jaw aches, drink & dine & share your normal. You never know, by doing so, you might just save a life.
We so hope to see you there.
