Springing into Summer

As I type we’ve enjoyed a glorious summer; it was last weekend on the 13/14/15th May.

Seriously, as happens every year, we have been informed we’re going to have a scorcher!    At The BriT we are ready, whatever the weather, to get involved in some serious summer month shenanigans.

As late May Bank Holiday approaches we look forward to our very first BriT dog show, Brufts (see what we did there?)  This will be a dog show with more emphasis on the silly and slobbery rather than the coiffed and preened.   Bring your pooch down for woof-based nonsense.

Later that weekend we also have Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist Allan Turner-Ward bringing his cheese-tastic roadshow to The BriT; we will also be having our sausage and cider fest, what’s not to like about that?

Modsummer Madness will takeover The BriT as we celebrate our longest day with a weekend devoted to all things ska and mod; if you haven’t yet caught Boy Le Monti or Reverend Toon you really should….heaps of energy, heaps of fun!

Following a stonking night last year, Terry Farley returns to the decks on July 2nd with the Hold Tight crew supporting; always a heaving dance floor for this night.

The following weekend we go wobbly for Wimbledon with all the big matches shown on our 5.5-meter screen.   Promotions involving strawberries and Pimms (although not necessarily together) will be running.

Other gems coming your way include Stevie G’s Soul Cellar, Little BriT’s Club every Wednesday, Evergreen lunches every Thursday, Afro*Disiacs Rum n Reggae parties and our monthly comedy nights.

The Hairy Man Festival ‘Trimmed’ will also be hosted by The BriT this year but more about that beardy lunacy next time………

A little BriT about us

The BriT, situated inside the old Britannia Pub, in Ashley Cross, with a capacity of over 300, is the largest venue in Lower Parkstone. It has a large outside decked area, for sunny afternoons and smokers, and a large car park at the rear.

The Venue is split into three different areas, The Westwood Restaurant, The Snug Cocktail Lounge and The BriT Bar; allowing us to utilize the space for numerous events, comedy, cabaret, weddings and private hire.

We are also a live venue, hosting numerous live sporting events on our 5.5 meter screen,  live music (featuring local musicians, as well as top end international artists) featuring a host of genres to suit everyone’s tastes; from jazz, swing, rock ‘n’ roll, acoustic, soul and local/international DJ’s to cabaret evenings with a touch of finesse.

The Bar is stocked with unique and interesting beverages and there’s a wine menu to suit everyone’s tastes and budgets. We stock a selection of real ales and boutique beers and boast an exciting cocktail menu to entice the Ladies who ‘DO’ lunch.

The BriT is influenced by the old style London pub, but with a modern twist. An alternative venue with a raw and eclectic edge, we will be everything that IS British!

The exciting and exhilarating aspects of this venue are that it transcends beyond just decorations and moves into real life; ultimately it’s all about people.

The Westwood Restaurant offers a ‘Best of British’ menu, using all seasonal land locally sourced produce. A mouth-watering taste sensation that will appeal to a diverse clientele, we will be offering good quality home cooked, fresh food, with an edgy rustic feel.

Our Best of British Menu will be available from 12-3pm and 6pm – 9pm on weekdays, 12-9pm on Saturday, and 12-6pm on a Sunday when we run our fantastic carvery.
