Final preparations are being made for two major new events which are expected to attract hundreds of visitors to Mercia Marina.
Food from around the world is the theme of the StrEATfood Social which will see the best food from around the world on offer alongside world beers, rum, gin prosecco and cocktails.
There will also be live music, family fun and face painting at the free event which will run from 12pm to 10pm on Saturday, June 15th – the same day as Findern Village Fete.
Aaron Hunt, …, said: “Our customers can expect an experience full of taste and flavour from all over the globe done properly - the Street Food way! Brazillian BBQ colour, Pan-Asian flavour. Pulled meats to loaded fries, a taste of Mexico and enough sweetness to go with it from Brownies to Churros.
“World beers, lagers and ciders accompany great Gins, Prosecco and cocktails from our quality bars. All this with beautiful surroundings at Mercia Marina with background music from our live acoustic acts and DJ’s.”
Just one week later the marina will host a Summer Solstice event which will be held on Saturday, June 22nd from 3pm. As the light fades the fun begins at Mercia’s second all new event. The Lantern Company will be dressing the marina with giant Stonehenge like stones, you will see magpies, druids and solstice characters playing into the night to celebrate the beginning of summer and enjoying the good harvest of a street food style market that will go on into the night including entertainment, street foods from around the world and a selection of drinks, ranging from craft and world beers to gin, rum and prosecco. Dances of light, sweet tastes and sounds along with performances that are not to be missed.
Tony Preston, Sales and Marketing Manager at the marina, said: “These two events are all about delivering a different quality experience, enjoyment, and creating memories. This year’s Easter event was hugely popular and sets the trend for interesting and vibrant new events by the water at Mercia Marina and of course they are all free entry and free parking”
