Arts adds to pub experience

Arts adds to pub experience

Ross Saunders and May Davies of The Two Brewers, Chelmsford held a film and food evening to launch their function room as a space for theatre and the arts. The couple screened the Oscar-winning film Chocolat and served a three course chocolate inspired menu to showcase their food. Nibbles such as chocolate popcorn were followed by chocolate chili con carne with chocolate Petit Fours for dessert. The event proved a hit, bringing in new faces.  “People are looking for an experience when they go out and said they loved the evening’s uniqueness. Showing films and theatrical performances is a natural addition to food and drink and encourages customers to stay longer,” explains May. “We’re doing a great private function trade but hosting diverse events introduces different people to the pub.” The couple now plan to introduce children’s theatre and a film club screening classics.
