The month of August is very much holiday time, whether you’re jet setting off somewhere exotic or prefer a ‘staycation’ in the English countryside! For those of us not vacating the British Isles, this time of the year always sees a plethora of festivals – some of them local to the stores too. Kicking off with the quintessentially British Countryfile Live at Blenheim Palace last weekend - only a stone's throw from our Yarnton store. The bank holiday weekend hosts the Reading Festival - just up the road from Three Mile Cross for those of you who want to 'rock'. On the same weekend is something for everyone – and near to the Oxford stores – Big Feastival is the perfect mix of music and food, just inside the Cotswolds in an idyllic setting. So something for all this August!
If you’re not throwing some shapes at a festival in Reading or the Cotswolds at the end of the month at least you have the August bank holiday to look forward to (26th August). Traditionally this is a rainy one but we’re hoping the sun has still got his hat on! In the stores you’ll find everything you’ll need to help you enjoy the break, from sunglasses, sun-creams and everything for a great British BBQ (including umbrellas of course…..)
With Summer in full swing we reckon this months prize draw may be just right! We’ve teamed up with our friends at Molson Coors to put together a lovely hamper of beers. Just go to the prize draw to find out how you can win this perfect prize.
Keeping with the summer spirit our free giveaway this month has a summer feel about it and may be a perfect snack for those picnics or just as a guilty pleasure! The Topped and Filled Strawberry Donuts taste delicious and are right in keeping with the summer vibe! To get your hands on one download your voucher when you log in.
So, whether you're sticking around this August or jetting off on holiday, have a good one, whatever you do.
See you in store
