Keeping guests well fed with tasty event catering options at Eastbourne’s Wyntercon
This year’s Wyntercon event took place in September at Princes Park in Eastbourne and provided families and local residents with fantastic entertainment, great event catering and more!
The event is a comic con style show and this year saw the event change venues. After three successful years of being held at the Winter Gardens in Eastbourne town centre, the event was moved to the large green space at Princes Park following the planned refurbishment to the Winter Gardens.
Andy and the rest of the Wyntercon team did a marvellous job at securing a big top tent to allow the popular show to continue to run, and also expand its offering. Naturally, the team needed event catering to ensure guests were kept well fed, and that’s where the team at By Ambience were thrilled to come on board!
Our event caterers were the perfect fit for the event, as not only do we offer tasty event catering menu options, but we also have a dedicated events team and can offer our onsite kitchen services which allow us to create a multitude of different offerings.
After a days’ build on site, we set up our ten metre long counter service with different serving areas for grab and go foods, hot meals and drinks. We had a variety of dishes on offer to ensure we were able to cater for many different dietary requirements and tastebuds, but also different meal times due to the duration of the event. We also built an on site field kitchen to support the cooking of the dishes to ensure a swift and efficient event catering service.
This was my first time at an event of this type and I was not quite sure what to expect apart from a lot of people in fancy dress. One thing I must say is wow – the effort that people put into it was quite impressive and they all looked the part. We met so many film characters –there’s honestly too many to list. We even had a team shot with a life size Jabba the Hutt, but don’t worry he is not joining the team! It was great to see so many familiar faces too!
