For seven years now Christmas at the Spiegeltent has been held in Bristol. The temporary wooden structure sets the stage for cabaret acts and is beautifully decorated with stained glass windows and mirrors.
Growing from 200 guests for their initial show, Spiegeltent now attracts up to 1,000 guests who attend to enjoy an evening of food, drink and cabaret performances.
Garnering such success over the years the team decided to launch a sister event in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle in November 2019.
After another successful year in 2018 delivering the event with PKL, the Spiegeltent team chose to work with PKL again as the team expanded into Liverpool.
For the 2019 event in Liverpool both teams at PKL and Lowe worked together to deliver the project.
The addition of Lowe large cold rooms – the largest used to date by the team – provided the perfect solution for the catering team’s delivery plans. Through utilising large Jackstands of pre-prepared starters and desserts the team were able to serve guests more efficiently. Additionally, PKL’s kitchen and wash-up solution enabled the small team to seamlessly serve 1,200 customers each evening throughout December, across two sites.
Simon Davis, Director of Picnic Catering, said: “PKL and Lowe have been fantastic, their products have been really really good and are exactly what we want. They turn up and deliver the kitchen and cold rooms on time and if there’s ever a problem they come down and they fix it.”
Since PKL was acquired by Lowe in 2019, the two teams have combined their expertise and worked together on many successful projects on an international scale.
