Weavers is one of Nottingham’s longest established family businesses and Philip, who is the fifth generation of the Trease family to be involved in the business, will speak about how Weavers has evolved over the last 175 years.  Originally starting as a public house, Weavers has become a well-known and highly regarded independent Nottingham wine and spirits merchant, supplying to the public and to the trade, with a shop on Castle Gate.

The business continues to innovate to give it fresh appeal to new and existing customers.  For instance last year it launched two versions of its very own Caste Gate gin flavoured with ground acorns gathered in Sherwood Forest.

Philip Trease, said: “I am delighted to have been invited to be a guest speaker and look forward to sharing our history and vision with members of Nottingham City Business Club.”

Ian Roberts, president of Nottingham City Business Club said: ‘’The club is always interested in hearing from successful Nottingham based family businesses with a long and varied history. I am very much looking forward to learning about the Weavers story and their plans for the future in this ever changing world.”

The event will take place at the Park Plaza Hotel, on Maid Marian Way, Nottingham with registration beginning at 11:45am. Tickets cost £27.50 for members and £39.50 for non members. To book a place, visit the NCBC website:
