Auction to help Action!

by | Nov 28, 2022 | News | 0 comments

This year’s Hospitality Action Winter Online Auction will run between 28th November and 12th December, and the Source Roadshow is delighted to be supporting them.

In June 2022, the Source Roadshow arrived at Ashton Gate Stadium for the first time, bringing the best of the South West to Bristol’s food and drink buyers. This new trade show hosted 200 exhibitors showcasing food & drink, equipment and all the services a catering, hospitality, or food retail business needs.

Bristol artist Ollie Gillard of Gage Graphics was commissioned to create a large one-off piece of work for the show, representing the journey our food and drink takes from producer to consumer, which he finished live at the show. This impressive original artwork (approx. 3m x 2.5m) will be amongst the lots available at the Winter Online Auction.

The 2022 Winter Auction features some amazing money-can’t-buy treats for the special foodies in your life, whether it’s exclusive dining experiences in some of the nation’s finest restaurants, overnight stays, afternoon teas, hampers or golfing experiences. Every penny raised from the Winter Auction and Raffle will help hospitality families in crisis, many of whom face an uncertain festive season.

Hospitality Action is the national charity that offers help, advice, and support whenever times get tough for staff in the hospitality industry, to help get them back on their feet and enjoying the job again, or to prepare them for the next phase of their lives. It has been, and continues to be, a challenging time for the sector, and its work is more important than ever. It’s the perfect charity for the Source Roadshow to be supporting.

The Source Roadshow will be back in 2023, on Thursday 27th June at Ashton Gate Stadium. Visit for show news, and to register to attend. If you’re interested in having a stand at next year’s show – call 01934 733433.
