Friends with Benefits

Friends with Benefits

We launched our Friends with Benefits Membership Scheme during the pandemic, and it’s grown and grown since then. Now the challenges of lockdowns are behind us, we’ve been working hard to improve the Membership benefits and we’d love for you to be part of it!

Check out the three Membership levels below.
(Ambassador levels receive a 10% discount with our local indie FwB partners too – list here)
