I’m so happy to announce that British film director Ken Loach will be our guest storyteller at Campfire Bath on Tuesday 30 September 2014, 7.30pm at The Porter, Bath.

This is a rare and such a special opportunity to share a pint and listen to stories from an acclaimed British film director.

The event will raise funds for Bath City FC Community Sports Foundation, which brings the benefits of sports to children in Bath, of which Ken Loach is Chairman.

Ken Loach has had a long career directing films for television and cinema from Cathy Come Home and Kes to Looking for Eric, The Wind that Shakes the Barley and most recently Jimmy’s Hall. He is also known for never selling out to Hollywood and speaking out on issues in Society that matter.

Drawing on stories and experience from film, his work in local community and society Ken will be sharing stories of ‘Collaboration’. The importance of collaboration in creativity, whether that is creating a film or a local community or wider society, and the role we can each play in choosing collaboration over competition.

Ken Loach, said: “Words like ‘collaboration’, ‘teamwork’ and ‘community’ have been devalued through overuse. Yet our society has become fractured and divided. I look forward to discussing how we can resolve this paradox, with a few stories from behind the camera thrown in!”

Campfire Bath tickets cost £12.50 (earlybird), £15 (general admission) and can be purchased here.  Get them now as it will sell out.

Campfire Bath was set up by Emma Horn, producer, Simon Tapscott, Do Good Things, and myself, to bring inspiration, collaboration and storytelling to the people of Bath doing good.  Previous guest storytellers include John Cullum sharing stories and insights on TALENT after nurturing the natural talent in two boys – Ben and Jamie Cullum – to become world-class musicians.

“The greatest gift from True Business has been simplicity. It has allowed my offerings to emerge and they are all things I never thought I’d be able to do as work. Photography and taking people into Nature feel so obvious as they are part of me. The business I needed to bring to the world has now been allowed to emerge.”

Edward Pike, Spiritual Mentor, Photographer & Writer

“My PR plan became the creative, energetic heart of my project. What emerged was surprising, energising, and far larger than I expected. This has given me the courage to do effortlessly what I previously believed would be challenging. I cannot recommend Kat more highly. She is world-class.”
