Venue Insight December Issue
So then, Plan B. I’ll let our good friend Kate Nicolls at UKHospitality take the lead on the state of play with her regular column on page 6. To grab a small quote “Many will be wondering when the punishment will stop”, will give you an idea!
As you’d expect, the nation is now alive with Christmas events, themed attractions and NYE parties on the horizon. To touch on but a couple; Electric Winter is now lighting up Between The Bridges this festive season as London's favourite destination to get into the mood, lining the magical riverside location until the 22nd December. LWE have announced 'Love Unlimited' NYE extravaganza at Brixton Academy, celebrating all things house and disco. This one off event will pay homage to the huge dancefloors of the original discotheques from the past.
The festive period is great for venues as it generally means there’ll be an increase in customers, takings and profit. But there is also a general increase in risk. You need to be prepared for all the risks that may present themselves. Make sure an insurance claim doesn’t get in the way of all the fun by mitigating risks where you can. NDML offer some sound advice when it comes to being prepared for the busy and unpredictable festive season.
Brockmans - ‘The Properly Improper Gin’, serve up two beautiful drinks for the time of year, but it’s a devilishly difficult decision to choose which one. Do you opt for the clean, clear, classic ‘Proper’ Brockmans Dry Martini - pure as the driven snow and elegantly perfect; or the vampish red ‘Improper’ Brockfast Martini – a concoction that is wickedly delicious, sparkling red, and involves a heady mix of Brockmans Gin, Triple Sec, berry syrup, and marmalade? Probably best to have both!
I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank all of our readers, contributors and advertisers for the continued support during a very difficult time for the industry. I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.
