In a bid to save the hospitality industry and help it out of its current crisis, as well as understanding the confusion youngsters can feel when considering their next steps in life, Jamie Rogers of Twenty-Seven in Kingsbridge wants to offer a lifeline to willing youngsters who may find that the hospitality sector is ideal for them.

Following a rocky start to his own career (he spent time in a young offender’s prison) Jamie soon straightened up following a summer as a pot-washer at The Cricket Inn at Beesands, then as a kitchen porter and general dogsbody, realising that his destiny was to work hard and make a name for himself in the kitchens, ultimately as a chef.

If you are 16 or nearly 16 (or know someone) and you haven’t got a clue what you want to do with your life, Jamie is hosting a Twenty-Seven Workshop, in an effort to entice youngsters into the industry.
Every Saturday, from now until the end of the summer, Jamie’s offering 16 potential chefs and 16 front of house staff a hands-on experience in hospitality at The 27 Hospitality Academy. And will pay for the privilege. It’s literally a win: win situation for all.
Help us save hospitality! And come and experience restaurant life first hand!

If you feel lost and confused about your future or you know a young person who’s looking for a taste of hospitality or some guidance… Please email for more information.
