Heyoooo pals! I’m popping on here for a quick post today- something that I wanted to alert you all to. I know a lot of you that read me posts are based in good ol’ Brum, like myself, and sometimes it’s worth checking out local events that the city is offering.
Since moving to university, I’ve become complacent in Birmingham. I know my favourite spots to go shopping, the good events venues to visit and my favourite restaurants to stop off at, but it means that every time I venture into the city centre, I miss out on a lot of what the city has to offer. And there’s an event happening this Sunday that you all need to know about.
On Sunday 4th Feb, at The Botanist (aka the beaut restaurant in town) St. Basil’s, a charity working tirelessly to help young people that are struggling with homelessness, is hosting a Mad Hatters Gin Tasting event. From 3pm-7pm, if you head down to The Botanist, there will be fabulous gin tasting, plus extravagant magicians, professional jugglers and characters from Alice in Wonderland all on hand to make your Sunday afternoon that little bit (rather a lot) exciting. Tickets are just £15 for this exciting fun-filled afternoon with gin, nibbles and entertainment included.
When the team at St. Basil’s got in touch with me recently, I knew I had to spread the word about this hugely important event, as the charity battles an important issue with people my age. Typically, when you think of homelessness, you think of people who are slightly older, and who were led down a wrong turn in the path of life. However, homelessness within young people is sadly a hugely prevalent issue, and it’s so important that charities such as St. Basil’s get all the financial support they can to keep doing their amazing work. So if you head down to The Botanist this Sunday, you’ll not only be brightening up your Sunday, but you’ll be brightening up the lives of those that St. Basil’s work so hard to support and bring change to.
So if you fancy the event, and you want to support a brilliant cause, have a wee look at the Facebook event page for further details on how to get your tickets now! I’ve also linked down below the Eventbrite page to get tickets directly! You definitely will not regret purchasing some tickets x
I’ll see you on Thursday with another wee post xxxx hope you’re all having a wonderful week!
