Lockdown has been a bummer! Whatever your situation, everyone has been affected and its been pretty damn difficult all round, which is why its nearly time to celebrate the end of it.
But its not all bad. So many local businesses have used the time as wisely as possible and have come up with new ideas, campaigns and products to reimagine and reenergise our local hospitality landscape safely, and WLGT is no exception.
I have always wanted to create our very own Box Office … a place where you can only find the good things in life. And now we have – in collaboration with our local and independent partner venues. We will only be selling totally unique experiences, completely bespoke to WLGT and packaged up with a whole lotta love, exclusively for you.
We will be creating some very special safe, socially distanced happenings for you and your loved ones to enjoy as we come out of lockdown. Our tickets will be limited in number (when they’re gone, they’re gone) and will also make great gifts to those around you who have gone over and above the call of duty, including those very special key workers in your life.
What kind of Unique Experiences can you expect?
We launch with a Summer Picnic & Alpaca Experience at The Chester Fields Country Pub & Restaurant with Rack & Ruin Alpacas. This is a unique family-friendly experience which can’t be bought anywhere else and includes a fabulous picnic hamper using the best local produce from The Chester Fields kitchen, plus a super-cute Meet & Greet Alpaca experience just for you and your group.
The Chester Fields is set in one of Cheshire’s most idyllic locations overlooking the Cheshire plains, and Rack & Ruin Alpacas are the friendliest hair-bear bunch in town (we know, we’ve met them before). We only have a limited number of packages to sell in the first release so if you fancy this very special family date, then purchase your tickets before they’re sold out.
We will also be selling restaurant vouchers for a little bit less to be redeemed mid-week, so you can avoid the crowds and support your favourite venues at quieter times.
And we will be selling tickets for unusual and one-off dining experiences with very special bespoke menus, so if you love your food and drink and want to support local, then keep your eye on the new WLGT Ticket Zone to see what arrives next.
This is our way of continuing to support our amazing partners at a time when they need us the most, and to ensure our own business can restart and hopefully flourish too.
And if you have any ideas about the kind of local experiences you would like to support then let us know, we’d love to hear from you. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
