Today, the international award-winning company sells art and crafts products across more than 40 countries and has an office and global distribution centre in the North East of England, as well as an office in California.

To date, the business has proudly collected more than 30 awards for the company’s achievements and Sara’s accomplishments as an entrepreneur, in addition to a multitude of craft industry awards for its innovative products. These include an MBE awarded for Sara’s services to the economy in 2016 and a Queen’s Award for International Trade in 2020.

In April 2019, Sara became the youngest-ever female dragon to join BBC One’s Dragons’ Den and she danced her way to week seven on Strictly Come Dancing’s 19th series with her partner Aljaz Škorjanec in 2021.

Sara has written two books, her autobiography – We Can All Make It – and a step-by-step craft project book Craft Your Year which was released in October 2023.

She regularly co-presents on BBC’s magazine programme, Morning Live, and judged BBC’s Ultimate Wedding Planner with Fred Siriex and Raj Somaiya in summer 2023.

In 2024 Sara was awarded an Honorary Degree of Doctor of the University of York, where she first studied for her Bachelor’s Degree.

Alongside Vicky Pattison, Laura Whitmore and Alex Scott, Sara completed Comic Relief’s first all-female celebrity challenge in February 2024, trekking four days across the Arctic to raise money for Red Nose Day.

YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS YOU TO BE WELL!

Meet our Well-being Hosts

Business shouldn’t be all hustle, hustle, hustle. We also need to ensure that we take time to look after ourselves. At PeakeFest we are dedicated to helping you have a holistic view of you and your business.

Across these two days, there will be a range of wellbeing workshops and sessions which you can take part in free of charge, from meditation, breathwork, journaling and more.

Make sure you bring your yoga mat!

Within the Festival Grounds we have a beautiful wooded area where you can go and chill out, meditate and switch off.

We will also have a dedicated relaxation zone, so if you need time to step away from the action and have some time to chill out, be alone, have a nap, you can. We are passionate about making sure everyone will have a space to feel at ease.

Let me introduce you to our amazing well-being hosts and spaces below…

YOUR PEAKEFEST FOUNDER
NICOLA PEAKE

Nicolas’s mission is to connect thousands of entrepreneurs so together they can create a huge positive impact by growing their own businesses.

Nicola Peake, 44, from Bridgnorth, originally from Birmingham, is an entrepreneur who’s crafted a life she loves, having consciously created a business to fill her days with her favourite things – people, connection and incredible luxury experiences.

She’s on a mission to support others in business, to enjoy life, alongside building their empires, having experienced the flip side of the coin, when, despite earning 6 figures in a career she loved, at the age of 41 life didn’t feel worth living.

Coming from a 20-year career as a financial advisor before she entered the world of entrepreneurship, Nicola saw many examples of what success looks like -and has seen people from all walks of life defy stereotypes to create incredible wealth. She’s broken the mold herself, climbing through the financial services industry, starting out as a 20-year-old single mum in a male-dominated world.

She’s experienced success driven by her desire to always want more than she had when she was a kid. But she’s also seen people with lots of wealth be desperately unhappy, trapped by their career or business, and disconnected from life. She’s been there too, at rock bottom, with spiraling debt, loneliness and suicidal ideation.

After leaving corporate life with nice cars, big bonuses and luxury entertainment, due to a toxic situation, then running a 20K a month business from home which ended up making her miserable, Nicola realised that she craved connection and community and that without these 2 things, the money meant nothing.

Running a business where she was alone the majority of the time made her feel isolated, and was in huge contrast to what she’d loved during her career – working with, and helping people.

Nicola’s natural default is to be ‘sociable, loud and the centre of attention’ – she was always called a chatterbox in her school reports, but over the years she had found this caused negative judgment. However, when analysing her life and what she wanted from it, after hitting rock bottom, she realised she would only be happy if she connected with herself more fully and filled her cup based on her true characteristics.

Peakes Private Members Club was born focusing on business growth, building real relationships, collaborating, sharing successes, asking for help, networking, and enjoying unique experiences together.

Nicola admits to being ‘pretty rubbish in her own company’ and she missed many of the experiences that came with a high-flying corporate career – this business set about filling all the gaps she had in her life, and opening doors to other people in business who wanted a place to belong too.

This is now a successful community with 90 incredible business owners , who will ‘never again feel lonely in business’, and it’s a place that challenges ‘traditional networking cliques’.

Nicola wanted to go bigger, better, and create something truly phenomenal to impact and help hundreds, maybe thousands of entrepreneurs.

So, from this desire, determination and grit, PeakeFest was born….
