Popular LWIL on 3rd December is a sell out!

This year we have a real ‘Lady With Influence’ and are thrilled to announce that, Melissa Thorpe, MSc Head of Spaceport Cornwall, will be joining us at our Ladies With Influence Lunch (LWIL) at The Alverton, Truro on Friday 3rd December 2021.

Melissa oversees the entire Spaceport Cornwall project, guiding the team to a successful satellite launch in 2022 from Cornwall Airport Newquay. Together with launch partner, Virgin Orbit, this ambitious project will offer dedicated and responsible access to space, from an existing civilian airport. Melissa works across the launch environment to efficiently secure investment, regulations and the infrastructure required to launch, whilst communicating the space story to the local community.

This years Christmas LWIL the event has sold out in record time, however if you wish to put your name on the reserve list please send an email to
