Weekly Bulletin Issue 106. June 12th 2014

Kick off your World Cup with Spice Capture the optimism of the first England match this Saturday by joining us in the bar of The Copthorne. We’ve had to bribe Sepp Blatter himself in order to bring you this special event where we can watch England v Italy in a private area on a big screen with suitably anglophile sausage & bacon baps all round! The excitement, the tension & (possible) misery of it all is far better when shared with friends! See HERE

Photo of the Week Steve Millington gets this weeks prize for sending in his pic on the awesome Lift Tower! See HERE

Get inside a Chateau If you are one of the lucky people who don’t have to work in August, why not take the opportunity to try one of the special events that we can only offer on a weekday daytime. One of these is the opportunity to discover Chateau Impney with a historian and enjoy a sumptuous “Chateau Afternoon Tea”. If you’ve ever seen this iconic building from the M5 and thought “how did that get there?” Click HERE

Let the Summer Fun Begin! The sun is shining through the Spice office windows to remind me of some iconic Spice Summer events that are just around the corner. This time next week, lots of members from all over the UK will be packing for our annual Spice “pilgrimage” to Centre Parcs in Nottingham for our legendary weekend of fun and partying. Click HERE The following Saturday we are hosting a Masked Summer Ball at Birmingham’s beautiful, Victorian Botanical Gardens. Click HERE Then, a couple of weeks later we’re all off to Pershore for the colour and carnival atmosphere of Spice Dragon Boat Racing. Click HERE Each one of these is an absolute Spice classic event and a highlight of the Spice Calendar. As I write, we have a few places available on each one, but you will need to act quickly if you don’t want to risk missing the unmissable. We wish you all a wonderful Summer of fun! As ever, this Bulletin is designed to give you a quick overview of what is happening this week in Spice. “Anything in blue - should click through”.

Quiz nights are always popular and over the next few months Alan Roberts is adding to the fun with a series of News Quizzes. A useful tip might be to keep an eye on news events a couple of weeks prior to each quiz! The news rounds also include charades .. oh and there’s food on offer. See all quizzes HERE
