Robin Fegen and Brandy Wright founded The Robin Collective in 2010 along with Elspeth Rae. The Robin Collective organises imaginative and engaging events, pop-ups and promotions. Holiday Inn is partnering with The Robin Collective to create 'Magical Mealtimes' - original and fun new items to encourage children to have some fun with their food.

What would you cook for the Queen?
Brandy: I'd ask her to cook for me.
