Zenios Loucas, owner of vintage Tea-room The Fourteas - which offers visitors a unique experience where they can step back in time to the 1940s - said: “The Fourteas is an affair that goes far beyond the food and the drinks it involves; as it refers to the glorious days of WW2 and the way we can relate to them directly, or via our parents and grandparents. During the Spring Feasts, and later on in the year, during the Anniversary of the VE Day Celebrations we would like to give people the opportunity to come and create their own story with the people they love while enjoying delicious food and an amazing range of exotic teas.
Stratforward BID Marketing and Events Manager, Tor Wilkes, said: “In the heart of Stratford we are lucky to have over 140 places to eat and drink! Whilst Feasts - Stratford’s restaurant fortnight - is running, there are even more reasons to come to Stratford, with so many special set menus and offers, it’s a brilliant time to try somewhere new or retry somewhere you’ve not been for a while. It’s worth going to our website to check out what’s on offer, as it is constantly being updated.”
And remember to save the date for the welcome return of Stratford Town Centre Food Festival on September 19 and 20 with over 120 stalls, taste and ale trails and free cookery and drinks demos.
In the Summer, the ever-popular Stratford River Festival will take place on July 4 and 5. Its entertainment line-up will soon be released! Both events are organised by Stratforward BID on behalf of 420 town centre businesses.
