Bridge held an Evening of Entertainment on Wednesday 20th April.
Food was provided to all in attendance (burgers and chips) and all dietary requirements were catered for. Lots of non- alcoholic drinks were on offer, including mocktails, which went down really well!
This was the first time we had held an evening event and wanted to offer our members the opportunity to attend an evening social event without the temptation of alcohol being on offer, and to hopefully show that people can enjoy themselves sober.
Local acts including singers Lu Angel, Velvet Engine, Matt Murphy and comedian Pete Teckman, took to the stage to entertain the 80 strong crowd that gathered at their service in Gold Street, Northampton.
Feedback from attendees has been brilliant so far :
“I really enjoyed being able to enjoy an evening out with no alcohol in sight”
“I felt totally relaxed. It was a fab night in a safe environment, it showed us all that nights out can be done without drugs and alcohol”
“I enjoyed meeting new people and feeling free again”
“My mood was low and coming for the party cheered me up and even got me singing along!”
“Made me feel great and realise that we don’t need to be drunk to have an amazing time.”
Lots of requests to put on another night have been received and such was the reception, we are sure that it will have to happen again!
Big thanks to everyone involved in organising and attending the event!
