As well as being purchased, recipients have been keen to spend their Love Bristol Gift Card too. One of the most popular Bristol venues for people to spend their Love Bristol Gift Cards in July was harbourside multi-arts venue Watershed. Ellie Kirby from Watershed said:
“It’s so exciting that the Love Bristol Gift Card has had its most successful month to date, locking money into the city, and we’re thrilled that people are spending their cards with us at Watershed.
“One of our key organisational values is inclusivity, so we’re constantly striving to ensure our venue has something for everyone – from our 3 cinema screens, accessible and baby screenings, live music, creative tech studio and locally stocked café and bar. There’s lots happening in August too, with a family Pixar cinema season with tickets at £5 for everyone, kids’ space and kids’ menu, plus cocktail happy hour every day between 5pm and 7pm.
“The Love Bristol Gift Card has a great offering and we’re proud to be a part of it, supporting our city. I think the gift card puts venues on people’s radar that they might not have visited otherwise. Once they’re through the door, they have the opportunity to see what’s on offer, hopefully becoming regular customers. We’d love to welcome even more people into the Watershed to spend their Love Bristol Gift Card with us.”
