Pie Club

We all know that the first rule of Pie Club is that nobody talks about Pie Club. But what the heck, I’m in a rule breaking kinda mood and just feel the need to share the pie love with you.

Last week’s two Pie Clubs were a resounding success, proving that the simplest equations are the best. Allow me to demonstrate: B + + F = Good times all round (where B= Beer and F= Football).

There were lots of happy faces at The Comedy Store and The Frog and Bucket on 10th June and 15th June respectively, where footie fans swigged beer, munched on pies and cheered England on, all for just a fiver.

Admittedly, the happy faces may have had something to do with England’s two successive victories, but I’m convinced that the Holland’s Pies can take a large slice of the credit. The comedy that followed the Frog and Bucket event went down well too, with everyone hanging around after the game to soak up the good vibes despite the tempting sunshine outside.

Both Pie Clubs did a sterling job of raising money for Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy through admission fees and raffles, and the event at the Frog and Bucket even saw an impromptu auction, with a generous raffle winner donating his newly bagged Old Trafford hospitality tickets (courtesy of Chris O'Connor Promotions) to the highest bidder and raising a whopping £390 for Nordoff Robbins.

Since Pie Club has been such a success, there may be a sequel if England make it through to the quarter finals. Keep your eyes peeled for the return of Pie Club, and keep those fingers crossed for England!
