The spectacular launch of YourStreet Gift CardMay 24th, 2013
Saturday June 22nd 2013 brings you the exciting launch of the new and innovative YourStreet gift card. It is the unique, multi-store gift card redeemable only at independent retailers and services, developed by Anne-Louise Perez & Imogen McIntosh.
Anne-Louise and Imogen are delighted that 102 Cookery School at 102 Gloucester Road, will be hosting their launch. They see it as an ideal venue at the main cross road of Gloucester Road! From North to South and East to West ..everyone is invited!
Tom Herbert from the Baker Brothers will be starting things off and speaking at 11.30am. The festivities continue in great style with the community-based Bristol Samba. Drummers and dancers playing the energetic Brazilian based music, perfect for celebrating! Following swiftly on are speeches from our Bristol Mayor, George Ferguson, and UWE. Expect to hear too from a local trader!
The day will be a feast of food stalls and others served up by independent traders. Up to 24 stalls, with barbecue and foods from around the world including Mexico, Thailand and Turkey accompanied by exotic non alcoholic cocktails! Indulge in a cream tea while you sit and listen to the wonderful 20 piece jazz band The Sisters of Swing!
Want to learn something new the 102 Cookery School have invited chefs to do cookery demonstrations on their high tech new outdoor cooking station.
Art Rules will be offering workshops to children and adults. Learn about decoupage. Make a model frog or perhaps something for the home. Of course every party needs a face painter! We welcome Claudia Lucia, who will be offering face painting and body painting.
These are samples of what you can expect. And all under the cover of a giant marquee at 102 Gloucester Road.
Please come along, bring your friends and family!
