Fifteen Years Of Inspiring Imaginations Celebrated In A Very Unique And Sparkly Way

Winners of The Best Creation Station Franchise Awards Announced at the 15th Annual Inspiring Imaginations Conference. 

The Creation Station team and franchise owners from across the UK gathered at Cadbury House Hotel in Bristol on 21st and 22nd April, to celebrate 15 years of inspiring imagination at the annual Creation Station national franchise conference.

The day, gala evening and new booking system and website seminar, provided all franchise owners with the opportunity to celebrate successes, to learn about new developments and to share ideas together.

Sarah Cressall, founder and Managing Director of The Creation Station, said:
"When I started The Creation Station back in 2002, I never imagined the calibre of the team I would be working with.  Our Creation Station family has helped to inspire over 325,000 children and families, and with our new online booking system, it’s even easier for people to get involved and enjoy fun arts and crafts classes, parties and events delivered by our exceptional team across the UK."

The celebrations had an extra sparkle this year with The Creation Station’s #GlitterChallenge. The challenge was created to encourage people to wear something sparkly to brighten children’s lives and to nominate two friends with a £2 donation to raise funds for UNICEF.

The key note speaker was the brilliant Debra Searle MBE MVO. Debra resonated with everyone as she spoke about building resilience, managing a successful business and creating a fulfilling life.

There were also workshops where franchise owners got creative with the new Creation Station services now on offer. These include Tiny Treasures – parent and newborn craft keepsakes, adult and elderly Creative Crafters events and the new monthly Family Fun events.

The evening gala included an award’s evening recognising franchise owners who have contributed to their community or made significant developments in their business.

Fran Long, the franchise dedicated support manager, says:
Our franchise owners make such positive contributions to their local community,”  “We are really proud of the differences all of our Creation Station family makes, so judging the awards is really tough. Our one hundred and twenty-four franchise owners are becoming more and more successful and the calibre is really high."
