Phoenix High School

Phoenix High School – once one of the country’s worst – has seen a dramatic turnaround over the past 10 years, with one of the most recent catalysts for good being the development of the one acre site on which the gardens now stand. Salt Yard is excited to announce ‘A Late Summer’s Early Evening BBQ’. The event will take place in the wonderful fruit and vegetable garden of Phoenix High School in Sheperd’s Bush, West London.

Food and wine will be served from a pop-up kitchen and bar, with chill out music to accompany the evening’s feast. All the proceeds from this event will be donated to the school’s fruit and veg garden, thereby helping to keep this fantastic project going.

The event is priced at £35 per person to include all food. Drinks are extra and available from the bar. The event takes place from 4-9pm on Saturday 31st August.
