I am Fiona and I run The Great Indoors Sleepovers in South Manchester
I worked in higher education for 16 years as a project manager before deciding earlier this year to make a change and join the Great Indoors.
Juggling family life with a busy, often stressful, full-time job was becoming increasingly difficult and I constantly felt like I was missing out on precious time with my children so I decided to take the plunge and say goodbye to the 9-5 to do something completely different! I wanted to do something that would allow me to work flexibly and spend more time with my family but that would also allow me to put my creative side to good use and the Great Indoors provided the perfect opportunity to do all of that.
I am passionate about providing your child with a sleepover party they will love and that will make you wish you were small again!
Our tents are lovingly handcrafted using the finest cotton and each one is different meaning your child’s party will be as unique as they are.
Unlike most sleepover companies we don’t do themes as we think your child deserves a party that has been created just for them. We are inspired by a carefree, relaxed bohemian style and team our tents with the cutest cushions and accessories, many of which are handmade by us, to provide you with a bespoke party that is both stylish and beautiful. I will discuss yours’ and your child’s tastes with you to ensure we create the perfect look - I don’t hide the fact that I am a perfectionist in everything I do and that includes making sure all the details are spot on to ensure your child has the most memorable of parties.
When I’m not planning or setting up parties I can usually be found out hiking, up a mountain or doing something adventurous. I love the outdoors and like nothing more than sitting around a campfire, toasting marshmallows beneath the stars with my husband, 2 children and our dog.
Camping is my happy place, something I’ve been doing since I was a baby, so it’s quite fitting that I now spend my working days assembling tents!
