‘Cook with Us’

‘Cook with Us’

As we start to change the way we meet, Showtime Event Group is making it easier to ‘stay connected’. Let us spice up your zoom work meeting or your next online drinks with family and friends, with one of our many ‘Cook with Us’ options.

We are now running these work shops every Friday for smaller groups of 6 or more, or if you have a larger group, we can facilitate an online ‘Cook with Us’ at anytime through out the week. Our dedicated event producers will work with you  to curate your event and any additional activity and entertainment.
