Festive Fun in The Park

We love the festive season at the Kiosk, so we've put together an exciting schedule of celebrations to help keep you feeling Christmassy. Don't forget you can borrow a hot water bottle to keep you toasty whilst you enjoy your drinks and cakes - being warm definitely helps generate Christmas Spirit!  Oh, and thermals are not essential, but they certainly make a difference!

We will be kicking off our celebrations by supporting the brilliant Santa Run, a 5k sponsored run raising money for Keech Hospice Care which takes place at 11am on Sunday 9th December along the Embankment. If you are participating, and you pop along to the Kiosk (before or after your run!) in your Santa costume, we'll give you a free hot chocolate as a reward, we'll also donate 10% of the days takings to Keech. It's going to be a great day for participants and spectators alike!

Then at 9.30am on Monday 10th December, we'll have the first of our Christmas Storytime sessions with the statutory milk and biscuits for the kiddies and delicious gingerbread lattes for the grown ups.  In the afternoon, the little cherubs from Years 3 & 4 at Bedford Prep School will be heading down to the Kiosk to sing for us from 2-3pm.  There are going to be about forty of them serenading us - we can't wait!

On Saturday the 15th December, we'll be joined by the possibly slightly less cherubic (!) Eagle Choir (find out more about them here - ) from 12 until about 12.30 pm. Buy a Mince pies & mulled wine for £2.50 to really get you in the mood.

On Monday the 17th December, Storytime will be hosted by the magical Kris from Frog's Chorus and then, continuing with Carols at The Kiosk, we host the marvellous Castle Lower Choir on Tuesday 18th, from 12.45 until 1.15pm.  Hopefully by this stage of events we will all be well and truly full of Christmas Spirit - and we're not just talking about the mulled wine! 

Speaking of Carols - if you come down in December with proof that your name is Carol - we'll give you one of our famous MarshmallowMountainHotChocolateExplosions on the house!!! 

And last but by no means least, we'd like to wish all of our wonderful customers a very Merry Christmas by inviting you to join us for some carol singing, mulled wine and mince pies on Christmas Eve from 4pm. Pick up one of our Christmas cards next time you are passing which includes information about all our events as well as a very special Christmas recipe for our legendary Malteser Squares! 

Happy Christmas!
