Hey! Welcome to POWWOW Loughborough – the meetup for people with something to say. To each other.

This isn’t a networking group. This isn’t a sales pitch. This is a community.

Come and make connections, build relationships with like-minded people who want to share their experiences of their business, their interests, their lives.

Every other month, come and listen to a couple of speakers share their story, get insight and inspiration and discuss amongst friends.

Come and have a powwow at POWWOW!

All About Desserts creates and supplies artisan patisserie: cakes, tarts, bakes and desserts to businesses and the catering sector.

Founder, Craig Barton, learned his trade in five star hotel kitchens in London, some of the most demanding in the world. He then spent many years running dessert production units so understands what chefs, buyers and his clients want from a supplier: consistent quality products, for the end user with a teaspoon of innovation for good measure. That’s why we couldn’t think of a more appropriate name for the business – for Craig, his working life has been ‘all about desserts’.

Bom Bom Patisserie

Bom Bom Patisserie is an artisan cafe located on the Forest side of Loughborough, owned by husband and wife, Dan and Marta. At Bom Bom, we focus on delivering great coffee, delicious sweets and stunning celebration cakes.

Our coffee is sourced from Hasbean, freshly roasted and ground on demand to deliver a finely balance espresso that blends perfectly with our organic whole milk or dairy-free alternatives.

Our sweet goods are freshly baked every morning and include gluten-free brownies (with different flavours each day) and flapjack, berry muffins, our speciality gooey cookies, rocky road slices and fresh pastries. All of this sits alongside our lunch options which include filled and grilled ciabattas and homemade soups.

Our cakes serve as the perfect centrepiece to any celebration. Delivering to weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and corporate events, we create elegant designs that we hope to showcase at each POWWOW event!

We photograph people, you know. We make them look awesome, even the camera-shy.
We will make YOU look awesome too. If you’re already awesome, we will make you look even more super-awesome!

With over 20 years’ experience in product photography, we can make what you make look it’s very best. From tiny, hand-made one-off pieces of jewellery to massive industrial machines, if you’ve got it, we can light it!

You must know some amazing places. We certainly do.
Maybe you work in one or own one? We’d love to photograph it for you. If you don’t have one, why not let us help by putting you on one?
