Pop Up Business Café on Thursday 18th May at the Royal Oak

This is not our event but North Craven Networking Group is working closely with the Local Enterprise Partnership and How's Business to promote workshops and other events aimed at the local business community.

Have you ever wished that you had all the answers to your business questions in one place?

Well that's what a Free Pop up Business Cafe is. How’s Business are part of York and North Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership and organise many of these around the county and have lots of useful business info and events on their website at

We will have local experts waiting to give practical answers to your questions on a range of business topics. Totally informal, turn up when you like, leave when you like, come back again when you feel like it. It's a cafe, not a conference.

Please book through Eventbrite if you want to attend

North Craven Networking Group will also be having an informal networking mingle between 12-2 alongside the pop up cafe.

Thursday 25th May 3-6pm

An informal drop-in session for those interested in finding out about family history. Alex will also be able to show people how to use and Find My Past which can be accessed free in all libraries in North Yorkshire.  No need to book.
