Abbey Gardens launch competition to rename catering kiosk

Abbey Gardens, a Sodexo Prestige venue located in the centre of Bury St Edmunds, has recently launched a competition for the general public to rename its catering kiosk. The competition winner will be treated to a table for four for pre-concert dining at the Apex Lounge.

The award-winning gardens are bordered by the River Lark and features ancient monuments and the Bury St Edmunds Cathedral. A popular destination to soak up the summer sun, the beautiful garden includes a wonderful aviary, bowling green, water garden and impressive flower gardens.

Steve Smith, General Manager of the St Edmundsbury Collection, commented on the renaming of the kiosk: “Building on the success already achieved by the kiosk at Abbey Gardens, made possible by the great local support we have received, we thought it was only appropriate to give the community the opportunity to rename it.”

The renaming marks the one-year anniversary of the kiosk, which has enjoyed great success since its opening in the summer of 2013. Situated near the Aviary, the kiosk has a great offering of refreshments including delicious ice-cream, sandwiches and beverages. Surrounded by the attractive nature, the kiosk has a quaint seating area for visitors to sit and indulge in the scenery while enjoying their refreshments.

The competition, which closes on 29th August, is being run through social media channel Twitter. We are looking for a unique and exciting name for the kiosk that is fitting with its environment and builds on the community spirit. Participants are to give their name suggestions by tweeting at @SodexoPrestige, using the hashtag #namethekiosk. The ten most popular names will be chosen by the team and the winner will then be drawn. The prize includes concert tickets and a table for four for pre-concert dining at the Apex Lounge, providing the winner with the opportunity to experience the delicious food before enjoying a concert at the award-winning venue in Bury St Edmunds.
