Red Velvet Getaway

Friday 16th September-18th September 2022

Are you a woman in midlife ? 

Are your children are leaving home?

Maybe you are menopausal, at the end of a relationship, a job, maybe some other aspect of your life is shifting…

Could you do with a breather?

Would like to spend a relaxing weekend with a small group of other women at a similar life stage, listening to stories and having great conversations, with some space for personal reflection?

Do you fancy:

Cosy stories by the fire, a windy walk by the sea, delicious home made organic food from the garden, maybe a visit to the sauna… ?

If so you might like the Red Velvet Getaway. 

Led by me Marie Louise, a professional storyteller with a background in spirituality, counselling and music and a passion to be a kind of midwife for midlife, it’s a two night retreat where I share empowering stories for women, with songs round the campfire, a spot of bread making and some time to reflect on and celebrate womanhood and midlife.

It’s a chance to recharge your batteries in a safe and peaceful space in a lovely house near the sea in the beautiful East Neuk of Fife.

This is an opportunity for four women at a time. 

Each with their own room, and gorgeous organic fairly traded bedding and towels.

From the evening of Friday 16th September until the afternoon of Sunday 18th September 2022.

Cost £395 ( with an option to pay in 3 instalments at no extra charge)

We were delighted to present our show “Ladies Who Like It” as part of the Scottish International Storytelling Festival on Tuesday 19th October 2021 at the Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh.

Imagine a space where women could tell and hear
each other’s joyful, life affirming stories about
sexuality, shared with warmth, compassion and knowing laughter….

An evening of humorous, inspiring and informative contemporary collected tales about sex, and original songs, presented for the wellbeing and inspiration of other women, and for those who care about them.

Performed by Marie Louise Cochrane and Heidi Docherty, with
musical accompaniment from Suzanne Fivey.

Revel Sisters Marie Louise and Heidi invite you to an evening of stories, songs, poetry, fun facts and the occasional crocheted visual aid….

Our last show was “Midlife is a Cabaret” is at Rothes Halls, Glenrothes

Our aim is to explore and celebrate women and our sexuality in a life affirming, health giving, joyful, occasionally bashful, often cheeky way.

The Live show is available for women’s celebrations, festivals and theatrical engagements. We are based in central Scotland with good transport links to the world!

For details of forthcoming public events you can attend, or to book the show for your event please get in touch for more information

Who are these Revel Sisters…?

Revel Sister Heidi has been involved in a cornucopia of different roles from stilt-walking off Broadway and fire dancing at the Edinburgh Fringe, to expert macaroni artist supremo.  A founding member of The Parma Violents comedy duo, Heidi has been a radio and tv reviewer, voice over artist, and Fringe First comedy writer and performer. 

Revel Sister Marie Louise loves telling stories, writing and performing jazzy songs. She loves creating a space where truths can be shared with laughter and in solidarity. It seems the decision to ignore her first sense of calling to be a nun, has proved to be the right one….

What our audience say

Fantastic event, great food, great laughs.

Absolutely brilliant. Beautifully bold and inspiring. 

It was like all those things you have experienced as a woman being said out loud, great fun. I loved it.”
