After popping up in Archbishop’s Park for a second consecutive summer, The Tyger Café will close for the year on 1 September 2015. The last day it will open will be Bank holiday Monday, 31 August 2015.
We had been planning to stay open until 30 September, but have now been given notice by Lambeth Council to vacate the building as work to upgrade the park facilities, including the current café building, is scheduled to commence in September. As the building will be redeveloped, any future park café will not open on this site.
SPECIAL “SAVE THE TYGER” OFFER – All Coffee just £1.50
To tempt you down to the café one last time, we will be offering all types of coffee at just £1.50 per cup all day on Sunday 30 and Monday 31 August. We’d really love it if you could come down to the café over the bank holiday weekend to say TTFN and give us your thoughts on what any future café in the park should look like. The upgrade work will include plans to provide a site for a new, larger café on the St Thomas’ side of the park where the current toilet block is, so visitors’ input here would be very helpful in deciding how to “Save the Tyger” in future.
We want to say a huge thank you to all our staff and volunteers who have done a terrific job keeping park visitors fed and watered throughout the summer. In particular we’d like to thank Natalie Bell and Debra Reis for taking on the running and management of the café and committing so much of their time to it, along with their glamorous assistants (to name but a few): Aisha, Alex, David, Mahima, Merryn, Moses and Nasreen. We’d also like to thank all the people who have partnered with us during the last few months and helped us put on all kinds of park activities and art shows.
Thank you all and TTFN
The Tyger Team
