The Co-operative Christmas Showcase

Last Friday, bloggers from around the UK gathered at our Angel Square support centre to attend our Christmas Blogger Showcase.

As well as sampling a sumptuous 4 course Christmas menu from The Co-operative Food, guests were treated to unique behind the scenes insights, an update on 2015 campaigns, blogger panel Q&A, a mug cake demo, cheese board and a special treat.

The event started off with a welcome reception with Christmas tunes played by harpist, Maxine Molin Rose. With Annette Joseph hosting, the guests were started off with tasting sessions accompanied by ‘behind the scenes’ insights provided by Simon Cairns, Kevin Sargent and Jennifer Long.

Between courses, Jo Middleton from discussed the work we’ve done together since the last event – via video, as she was off winning an award.

This year’s blogger panel Q&A featured Sián Russell from, Jane Arschavir of and Louise Hegarty of Hosted by Jordan McDowell, the panel answered questions from the audience ‘on all things blog’.

Christian Guerreiro showed everyone how to create their very own mug cakes before the evening was rounded off with a extra special treat for all the guests.
