Parkinson’s UK Launches Secret Supper for 2020
This week Parkinson’s UK launched Birmingham’s second Secret Supper with even bigger plans than the first event.
The press launch for Secret Supper 2020 took place at the not-for-profit real ale bar, The Good Intent on 4th December. Guests gathered to hear about the concept of the event, and to find out which restaurants will be involved in the next Secret Supper, taking place on 28th April 2020.
The evening, which will be held at restaurants around Birmingham’s Colmore Row district, has been curated with the hopes to raise awareness and vital funds for people affected by Parkinson’s. After a huge success with last year’s Secret Supper, hosted at restaurants in St Paul’s Square, Jewellery Quarter – the next supper has moved so that more people can join in the fun!
Secret Supper is an exciting and unique multi-dining experience that will see guests enjoy three courses, at three different restaurants. The first secret was revealed at the press evening, and potential guests now know there will be nine restaurants involved in 2020’s Secret Supper, three more than the first Supper! The restaurants serving up their culinary delights on the night will be The Lost & Found, Gino D’Acampo My Restaurant, The Alchemist, Gaucho, Chung Ying, Sabai Sabai, The Pint Shop, Purnell’s Bistro and Ginger’s Bar and The Botanist. However, guests won’t find out which three restaurants they are dining at until they get handed their top-secret envelope at the drinks reception on the night! The event is a great opportunity to dine in some of Birmingham’s best restaurants and to meet new people, all whilst raising money for a fantastic cause.
Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition for which there is currently no cure. It affects 145,000 people in the UK, with an estimated 12,300 people living with Parkinson’s in the West Midlands.
Barrie Smith, a volunteer and ambassador for Parkinson’s UK, spoke at the event about his experience with the condition and gave insightful information about the realities and daily struggles of living with Parkinson’s. The money raised from the Secret Supper will fund Parkinson’s UK’s pioneering research to find better treatments and a cure for the condition, as well as its vital support services for people like Barrie, ensuring nobody ever has to face Parkinson’s alone.
Tickets are now on sale and cost £35 per person, which includes welcome drinks at The Lost & Found and a three-course meal at some of the city’s most prestigious restaurants.
Gayle Kelly, Regional Fundraiser for Birmingham and the Black Country at Parkinson’s UK, said:
After the success of the previous event, I am so excited that 2020’s Secret Supper is going to take place around the buzzing Colmore Row area – there are so many fantastic restaurants involved and it will be such a great night and we will hopefully raise a lot of money and awareness for Parkinson’s UK.”
The drinks for the press evening were kindly paid for by local businesses, FRAHA Marketing & Advertising and Sonny’s Jewellery. Both will also be sponsoring the drinks reception which will be held at The Lost & Found on the night of Secret Supper 2020. Jewellery Quarter based marketing agency, FRAHA, are also providing PR & Media support for the event.
Managing Director at FRAHA Marketing & Advertising said:
We’re so delighted to be part of Secret Supper again. We’ve been working hard to ensure it stays alive and can be an annual event treasured by locals. The Secret Supper is a fun and exciting concept which will come together to showcase some of the best eateries in Birmingham.
We’d like to thank all local press and bloggers that made it along to launch night and all that are willing to help us spread the word. It’s with the help of others that we’re able to get the event heard about!
The first Secret Supper hosted in St Paul’s Square earlier this year was received by guests beautifully. We hope the next one can raise even more for Parkinson’s UK and create another memorable multi-dining experience for guests. The team at FRAHA are delighted and proud to be lending our support to such a great cause that affects so many families.”
