Poppy Pavillion provides perfect escape from the cold

As visitors flock to St George’s Hall to view the breath-taking sea of poppies cascading from its window, they now have the perfect retreat to shelter from the wintry elements.

Visitors are welcomed to pop into the Plateau Pavilion hospitality marquee where they can enjoy a variety of hot and cold refreshments, as well as breakfast and lunch.

And now the venue will be open during the evenings so you can view the spectacular poppies all lit up at night, then come in out of the cold and enjoy a warming mulled wine in the Plateau Pavilion!

The Plateau Pavilion is also a great place to pop in for a well deserved drink after a busy day at work, as well as being the perfect place to host your Christmas parties or corporate event.
The Pavilion is hosted by Gourmet Kingdom Limited, which has stores in Exchange Flags and Old Hall Street, and will be open for the duration of the Weeping Window exhibition at St Georges Hall from 10am each day.

Weeping Window is a sculpture comprising of several thousand handmade ceramic poppies which flow down the East side of St Georges Plateau. The artwork, by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper, is part of the 14 – 18 NOW programme marking the centenary of the outbreak of war and since opening on 7th November, has brought huge audiences to St George’s Hall.

Having successfully worked with St George’s Hall on a number of events over the last four years, Dean Bee and Andy Fernandez, the owners of Gourmet Kingdom have signed a contract with the Hall to run the hospitality marquee on St Georges Plateau for the three months the iconic poppy sculpture is on site.

Dean Bee, operations director of Gourmet Kingdom explained:

“We have been working with St George’s Hall for a number of years now with our catering business, Gourmet Catering and this was a huge opportunity for us to be involved in. We wanted to strengthen our relationship with Liverpool Council and go into partnership on such an iconic project as we believe our business can offer the highest degree of customer service which is important in business.”

The Weeping Window artwork will be on display until Sunday 17th January 2016, and during this time, visitors can pop into the Plateau Pavilion where they will receive a warm welcome from the cold and enjoy a variety of hot beverages, such as tea, coffee and hot chocolate, along with a huge selection of cakes, biscuits and sandwiches.

Or if you are organising a Christmas party or corporate event, then Plateau Pavilion is the perfect option. The Plateau Pavilion will now be open in the evenings from Thursday to Saturday, 6pm – 10pm giving you the chance to sample the expert hospitality of Gourmet Kingdom.

Andy Fernandez, who has been working with British Airways for 21 years as an inflight manager says:

“Customer Service is at the heart of everything we do in our business and is something we train all of our staff on regularly.

“Our staff wear a professional uniform and must be properly dressed for work each day along with addressing customers by names or sir or madam. Our staff have to learn and remember customer names and orders as it is all part of the customer experience.”
