About Us

Janice and Lorraine have been organising successful weekend retreats since early 2008 when they first launched GoGo Getaway. GoGo Getaway started with the aim to create the perfect crafting weekend with a professional, yet personal touch. Starting with just one event a year, it soon became clear that this wasn't going to be enough.

Before launching GoGo Getaway Janice shared her love of scrapbooking through magazine features and teaching at crops. Lorraine has taught at many events including the UK's first large scrapbooking event 'Bonanza' held at the NEC in Birmingham. Lorraine has also enjoyed writing articles for craft magazines and featuring in publications in the UK.

Niki joined the management team in 2016 and Janice & Lorraine have been thrilled about the partnership and the exciting ideas Niki has brought to GoGo Getaway ever since. Niki is currently on the Simple Stories, Bella Blvd, Hip Kit Club and Lottie Loves Paper, Design Teams where she inspires people constantly with her layouts and YouTube Process Videos.

Lorraine stepped back from management in April 2021 in order to concentrate on her career and family. Janice is due to retire at the end of 2021 leaving Niki at the helm.

Dedication to the finer details in event organisation means each Retreat runs smoothly, both before and during the weekend, leaving each and every delegate to enjoy the classes and other crafting opportunites on hand. Great class kits and bespoke class concept ideas are part of what makes a truly great GoGo Getaway Retreat, supported by comprehensive instructions and materials.

Having evolved and developed our events specifically to suit every level of crafter, we are proud to have recently celebrated our 10th anniversary GoGo Getaway in 2018. With a high volume of returning delegates year after year we believe that we have achieved the right mix and perfect combination for an inspirational crafting retreat.

GoGo Getaway...inspired creativity.
