Welcome to The Refectory Table

We’ve created a range of courses designed to help you raise your profile and build your track record. You get the time and support you need to explore your own path for development, and the chance to learn and build great relationships.


Our approach is based in providing excellent content for small groups in relaxing and informal settings, plus the deeply social combination of the meeting of minds over good food shared at large tables.


Whether you’ve just started up, an established business or a seasoned professional, you’ll find that the ideas, inspiration and energy you’ll gain at The Refectory Table will give you a real boost.




We run sociable and relaxed creative business courses that help you get better at the business of being creative.


We take a different approach to courses - we run them in creative and friendly homes, including our own in Leicestershire, for creative people who want to find a fresh way of thinking about the way they work.
