Festive family fun...

It was great to have so many of you join us last Saturday for a brilliant, family-friendly film afternoon, our free screening of Elf.

Over 100 people came along to Coffee Box and it was a pleasure to serve hot drinks, movie-themed snacks including popcorn and chocolate, and Christmas treats during the night. We loved seeing you get into the Christmas spirit, with elf costumes all round, and the film wasn't just a hit with the kids, either, as our licensed bar gave the adults something special too.

There was a great buzz as we enjoyed the film with guests from across the town, and as the lights were turned up at the end of the night, many said how much they enjoyed themselves. If you want to enjoy more events like this, our next movie afternoon is at 4pm on Saturday 17 January, when we'll be showing Mr Popper's Penguins, a great family flick starring Jim Carrey. Save the date for a great opportunity to spend an afternoon with friends and family in our lively coffee shop.

If you're looking for a more traditional Christmas event, this Sunday (14 December), King's Church presents their carol service, The Greatest Gift, held at the Hastings Centre, with entry through Coffee Box. This is always a hugely popular event (the afternoon service is fully booked!) and we'd love to see you at the 7pm service. You can book your free ticket here.

Finally, don't forget that we are open until 3pm on Tuesday 23 December, so why not come in and make the most of our Christmas goodies until then? We'll be opening again at 10am on Monday 5 January, welcoming in the new year with our menus of hot and cold drinks, meals and snacks that everyone can enjoy.
