National Waiters Day 23rd June 2013 – Get Involved!

National Waiters Day is the brainchild of Fred Sirieix and is designed to celebrate all front of house staff – whether a waiter in a fine dining restaurant like Galvin at Windows or Rhubard in Edinburgh; a dub dub in TGI Fridays; a shaker in Ed’s Easy Diner; a mixologist in Salvatore’s cocktail bar; or a barista in Benugo.

National Waiters Day is taking place on 23rd June 2013.

This will be a day to celebrate all front of house staff and inspire people about careers in the Hospitality industry.

The day aims to change the perception of Front of House and Service as an unskilled job working long hours to one of a job that offers good skills, lead to a rewarding career with good progression routes and amazing rewards.

It will be a  day of celebration of the excellence, dedication, hard work and discipline of all 2.5 million working in the Hospitality industry in the UK.

The day will demonstrate the values of the profession with a range of activities and events – be part of it!

National Waiters Day Race.

On the 23 June 2013, in London, we aim to usurp them all by creating the BEST Waiters Race, taking place at Brunswick Square from 10.00am.  Race starts at 11:00.

The race invites waiters from all sectors of the restaurant, café and hospitality sector to take part and show off their combined skills of elegance, competition, and professional skills, by racing carrying a tray, bottle and glasses, keeping them in place for the whole race. The winner is the Waiter who crosses the finishing line first with tray and contents still intact.

More locally in Bristol, City of Bristol College will team up with The Bristol Hotel, part of The Doyle Collection to host a fabulous lunch served by students from the College on Tuesday 25th June.

Full details of the event can be seenon the National Waiters Day website here.
