Celebrating the vibrancy of Southgate Street

Inside BluBambu

BluBambu joined forces with five other Southgate Street businesses to showcase the lively array of new independent retailers that have been arriving along Southgate Street in Winchester, bringing with them luxe home interiors, fine art and stylish fashion. We did this by arranging an inaugural event, the Southgate Street Soiree – an evening that promised a rekindled discovery of Southgate Street, whilst enjoying a glass of prosecco, canapes and relaxed conversation.

It was a warm summer’s evening in the middle of a UK heatwave and guests were welcome to explore Southgate Street and see what was on offer throughout this cultural borough. We were also joined by the Mayor of Winchester, who came to meet the businesses and help highlight Southgate Street as a prime destination for Winchester’s shoppers.

The other businesses that took part included Claridge Fine Art, championing contemporary and emerging fine art; Searle & Taylor, a bespoke kitchen design service; Sass & Edge, an award-winning independent womenswear boutique, and familiar franchises Toni & Guy and Hotel du Vin & Bistro.

The Soiree was a huge success that attracted many Winchester residents out for the evening and we enjoyed welcoming lots of new people and raising awareness of our unique offering in the city.
