    Construction of Temporary Cafe has started

    De Boer started construction today, Monday 5th November 2012, of the Temporary Cafe on the Picnic Lawn in between the Pelicans, Amphitheatre and Display Lawn.

    They will erect an Alu Hall structure, which will incorporate glass panels within its walls, and will be partitioned and fitted out by the client to create a large public dining room plus separate kitchen and staff area.

    The restaurant will open to the public on 1st December 2012 and is expected to stay in place for nine months and can be used for events.

    I presume you've both seen the plans for the actual restaurant/cafe as well.

    I was half expecting them to start in December on it as like I said above they are losing potential money.
