Hello, my name is Catherine and I have been blogging for three years.  Well, Catherine’s Cultural Wednesdays has existed for longer but after the first post I was so scared that the second one didn’t follow for over six months!  Nothing to be scared of it turns out.

This year I am really really pleased to be a finalist in the Brilliance in Blogging Readers Choice category. If you had told me that after the first post I would never ever have believed you.

Catherine’s Cultural Wednesdays came into being after I broke my shoulder. Isn’t that how all blogs start? Unable to drive or do any of the stuff that I usually did I started going up to London once a week to see something cultural. These became known as Cultural Wednesdays and one thing led to another.

If you are not a regular reader ……. Catherine’s Cultural Wednesdays covers arts, culture, family travel and books. Anything that interests me!

You can find me on social media at: Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Google+

What will I be wearing? Probably a mid length green pleated skirt and a black jumper with some discreet pearls, but that can all change.


  • Wear comfortable shoes
  • Take business cards
  • Don’t leave the cards in your bag, hand them out!
  • Talk to people you have never met before
  • Look at the agenda and workout what you want to do
  • Enjoy yourself!

    Yes comfy shoes all the way! It is my first event so I am feeling a bit nervous but it should be a lot of fun too
