Lots of couples in Axbridge are concerned they have been unable to sign up for the Progressive Supper on November 16th.

The system used is an online booking site linked to the FaceBook site. However the organisers release the courses in batches to keep the numbers even as there is usually too many couples wanting to travel or to do a starter.

New batches are released regularly but if you have so far been unsuccessful then you can register your request to book a course the old school way. Either drop a written request through the door of 31 Old Church Road with your details or email harryfmottram@gmail.com

This year the event will be a fund raiser for the Axbridge Pageant 2020 held over the August Bank Holiday of that year. The Pageant has become world famous and is a massive event for the town with more than 200 residents in the cast.

The Progressive Supper starts and finishes at the Lamb Inn. Couples and you don’t need to be ‘a couple’ (so a couple could be two friends, a mum and a daughter, dad and his football mate, etc,) either travel and don’t provide a course or a host providing either a starter, main or sweet. There is lots of information on the FaceBook site with FAQs so do check it out for details.

The one thing you can guarantee is you whatever you pay and serve the evening’s collective meal will be as good if not better than a top restaurant for much less with the money going to the town’s pageant.

One of the fund raising aspects of the night is the raffle which raises hundreds of pounds for the pageant. Please consider donating a prize for the raffle – chocolates, wine, tickets – whatever you can rustle up will be appreciated. And bring cash as the tickets are £5 each on the night with the draw at 11.30pm in the Lamb Inn.
