2013 & The Future

So we have neglected our bog (just a little) but it has been all change here at Crown and Country HQ. We have spent January and February planning and working hard on our new venture.

Since we are no longer allowed to run regular Prestwich Food Fest’s as we had planned (read more of the reasons why here ) we have been planning lots of new and exciting things.
Whilst we loved holding the Pop Up Prestwich Cinema it was rather costly (after licences and equipment hire) the tickets for you would have been too expensive for you (we hope to work something else out in the future)

So we made the decision to start a venture that we have wanted to do for years, due to Bury Councils Licencing Policies It cant be in Prestwich which we are very disappointed about as everyone in Prestwich was so lovely, responsive and supported us greatly.

We are so excited about our new venture but due to red tape we have had to keep it top secret but we are nearly ready, so stay tuned and keep checking back as we will be telling you all about it really soon.

In the mean time we will be posting lots of new posts here regularly so keep checking back.
