Independent Businesses Celebrate Independence Day!

As a celebration of Independence Day on the 4th July, fourteen independent local businesses are descending on Thrapston in a feast of health, style, well-being and beauty!

Smile & Style is fast becoming the ‘go to’ event for all ladies who enjoy taking care of themselves and further educating themselves about their health and well-being.

This season’s speaker is local hypnotherapist Caroline Prout who will be speaking about why willpower just does not work and how you can improve your chances of success in weight loss, create good fitness habits, enabling better sleep etc through really simple, yet effective techniques.

Thrapston Primary School is playing host to the event and the fourteen independent businesses will be showing everything from clothes, bags and scarves to perfume, make up, lotions and potions, as well as all this guests will be able to enjoy treatments of organic facials, nikken remedies, reiki and more.

Smile & Style is a ticket only event and with tickets at just £4 each it’s a real bargain – what’s more, each ticket is also a free entry into the prize draw to win treatments, vouchers and products from all of the exhibitors.

The event opens at 5:30pm on Monday 4th July but guests are invited to come and go as they please, to enable organisers to cater for parents, people in full time work and to fit in with any clubs etc.  The main timings are; Caroline Prout will do her talk at 7:30pm and the raffle will be drawn after this.  The rest of the event is time for browsing, shopping and sampling treatments.

Tickets can be purchased from Jollys Toys on Thrapston High Street, or by calling Helen on 07799 627789 – Find out more at
