The way Edventure does education is quite revolutionary.
Rosa, Edventure Start-Up Student
From having a vision to becoming a start-up, Edventure’s incubation process has been absolutely outstanding.
Dr Sam Evans, Owner of The Walled Garden at Mells.
How refreshing and different this night was to anything I had experienced before! A triumphant celebration of the diversity and multiplicity of small businesses and Frome, as well as a reaffirmation of the strength of community cohesion in this town and people’s desire to help their peers not only survive but thrive.
James Holcombe on The Local Entrepreneurs Forum for Frome
It was great to see Frome’s community coming together to support local enterprises. I love the fact that it wasn’t just about pledging financial support, but also offering time and resources.
Helen Fielden on The Local Entrepreneurs Forum for Frome
I’ve loved every minute of the course. Meeting lovely people and realising when you put your heads together, you can achieve anything, even in just 3 weeks!

Edventure is my second family in Frome. Being here has helped me to focus on developing a creative career. It’s full of people on my level who communicate well. Edventure is my second home.
