The Stack Seaburn suffered a minor set back last week as they postponed their grand opening to the public. In a Facebook post on August 26, Stack Seaburn stated that, “we are devastated that Stack Seaburn won’t be opening this weekend, but we have to act in a responsible way to ensure the health & safety of our contractors, staff and customers.”
The establishment, which is situated on the beautiful coast line of Seaburn, will now open its doors tonight, Friday 4th September at 17:00.
Gemma Dishman, Marketing and Special Projects Manager told us that, “It feels like 2020 has been the year of set backs, so we were massively disappointed to have to postpone the opening of Stack Seaburn by one week. Everyone working on the project has gone above and beyond to try and bring everything in on time for the Bank Holiday weekend, but due to a number of extenuating circumstances it just wasn’t going to be feasible.”
In true British fashion, the weather played a major part in the delay of opening. Gemma said that this was due to the speed in which the tents could be put up, “We really didn’t want to open up without them as they complete the scheme and offer protection from the elements! It’s essential to us that our very first customers have an incredible experience and without the extra week this may have not been the case. By postponing the opening to Friday 4th September, we can ensure that all the tents are up and people can come and enjoy Stack Seaburn whatever the weather!”
Opening weekend is set to be a big hit with all bookings full, “we have allowed for a good amount of walk up so people can still come along on the day if they haven’t booked.We have a full line up of live music scheduled for the opening weekend and all of our street food traders are eager to start serving their delicious food.”
