International total facilities management provider OCS has been awarded a contract to provide catering services in the Bar & Bistro at The Market Place Theatre and Arts Centre, Armagh, Northern Ireland.
The Bar & Bistro re-opened on 4th July under OCS management, with new menus, using fresh ingredients and local produce, for lunches, bistro meals, and pre-theatre dinners; a theatre coffee shop; a full bar service; weekend entertainment; and state-of-the-art facilities for meetings and conferences.
Jane Sheard, CEO UK Facilities Services for OCS, commented: ‘This is a very high profile contract where our catering team has already welcomed President Michael D. Higgins and hosted a VIP reception. The venue is key to helping to attract visitors to Armagh, and we look forward to working in partnership with the theatre team to enhance the theatre experience of both local people and visitors to the area.’
Director of The Market Place Theatre Jill McEneaney commented: ‘We are delighted to be working with OCS as we enter a new era for the bar and catering services here at The Market Place Theatre. The new Bar & Bistro is a key element of the overall theatre-going experience and one that audiences are already embracing whole-heartedly.
