This week we’ve been busy thinking about Christmas at Deaf Institute (it’s never too early, change my mind); hosting an amazing charity Bongos Bingo event with our charity partner OnSide; and launching an all—new room in Rudy’s Birmingham for all your pizza party needs.

02. Look at our wonderful volunteers! Mission Mars employees from all our venues flocked to the Albert Hall last night to volunteer at our charity night in collaboration with OnSide: an incredible charity that changes the lives of young people through their work at their nationwide Youth Zones. The night was a roaring success, with Bongos Bingo, bands & DJs, a charity auction and of course the wonderful Beverly Knight. Photo Lydia Wakelam

Available for hiring for parties, events, eating multiple pizzas undisturbed… plus it has its own spritz bar, ping pong & miniature football tables, and projector sending vintage Italian films & football dancing on the walls. What a treat. Photo Lydia Wakelam
