Latest News & Events


There was no slowing down at our last beans event for the year!

Guests were given a fabulous and full throttle account of what it is really like to be a stunt driver.  We were so excited to welcome Paul from Paul Swift from Paul Swift Precision Driving as our guest speaker.


Paul talked about his experiences being a driver and how he started out in a tractor at the age of 6.  His dad was into driving and it is very much a family passion.  Paul highlighted his families engineering background including various Darlington based companies where him, his father and grandfather had all worked. 

He talked about how he moved from being employed to taking the plunge into self-employment and his work on screen.  Paul showed videos captured during his time at Top Gear Live and other events across the world.  Paul talked more his time on TV and movies and shared some very humorous stories with the audience. 

It was interesting to hear about his journey and how he is now focusing on giving other people the opportunity to experience what it feels like to be a stunt driver.  Having been focused on providing entertainment Paul felt this was a positive way to go forward and establish an exciting business opportunity.

Guests enjoyed coffee, cake and chat before and after Pauls presentation.

We are already looking at ideas for 2020 beans so watch this space.

In the meantime, check out details on Pauls website about how you could try this out for yourself!
