New Member: Laura Hadland

Laura is a Leicester food and drink writer – her blog Extreme Housewifery is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this month. Blogging has led her to meet some incredible people and find new opportunities in food and drink.

Laura undertakes as much freelance writing for a number of local publications as she can and regularly features as a guest discussing foodie topics on BBC Radio Leicester. She also runs regular wine, beer and spirit tasting events, including volunteering at her local vineyard, Rothley Wine Estate.

Laura’s company, Thirst Media, offers PR & marketing, photography, graphic design and social media management services to independent F&B businesses, so this is also a great way for her to create interesting content. It has been a year since Laura jumped ship from a 13-year stint as a Senior Museum Curator to focus solely on my business.

Laura is a member of the British Guild of Beer Writers and is currently studying for the WSET Level 3, having gained Level 2 with distinction over the summer.
