A thriving Southport catering firm has been chosen to be the appointed caterers for Southport Flower Show 2021.
The news is a huge boost for D’Vine, a firm which was among those in the events and hospitality industry which have battled through this year’s Covid-19 pandemic.
This week’s announcement of a Coronavirus vaccine and predictions of restrictions easing by Spring have raised hopes of crowds coming back in force in 2021 to enjoy big events they have missed this year.
Southport Flower Show is the biggest independent flower show in the UK, attracting visitors from around the UK.
This year has a ‘Life In Bloom’ theme and takes place at Victoria Park in Southport over four days from 19-22 August 2021, with special guests including The Hairy Bikers.
D’Vine, which is based in Southport, provides catering for all occasions and boasts 20 years of experience in hospitality.
D’Vine Events Manager Giles Gottig and Marketing Manager Caroline Douglas said: “After a turbulent year for the wedding and events industry, we have had to survive only on the corporate bookings that were allowed to go ahead along with our home delivery service.
“This news couldn’t have given us more to look forward to. Southport hosts such a wonderful Flower Show every year and I have always thought how great it would be for a local caterer to supply the event, especially as now more than ever supporting local is such a priority for everyone.
“2021 is set to be an excellent year for Southport Flower Show with some really exciting things planned on each day. We can’t wait to see everyone there!”
He said: “We are delighted to award the hospitality contract to D’vine Catering for next year’s Southport Flower Show.
“The quality of their food and service really impressed, and it’s great to be reinvesting back into a local company which wants to help us deliver the show in years to come.
“We have a superb range of hospitality packages now available via our website: www.southportflowershow.co.uk.
“Advance ticket sales for 2021 are very encouraging and there is a lot of interest in next year’s show, proving how much we have been missed this year.
“We would love to see more local companies getting involved in next year’s show, either by taking a trade stand or via sponsorship.
