TV chef Rachel Allen will be the special guest at the Kildare Enterprise Town event on Saturday, December 10.
The popular presenter and author will be chatting to exhibitors and attendees at the Bank of Ireland-sponsored event, which will take place at Kildare town’s Kildare House Hotel between 11am and 3pm.
The free event aims to provide a platform for local businesses, clubs, societies, schools, charities and community groups to come together and showcase of all that is great about Kildare town.
Enterprise Town days have recently taken place in Kilcullen, Maynooth and Celbridge.
The “ELF Factor” competition, open to local schools, is also running in conjunction with the event, where students are tasked to find the Boldest Elf in Kildare Town, photograph him or her, and post the image to the Kildare Enterprise Town Facebook Page. The winning image will receive a hamper and €100 for their school.
“Everyone is welcome!” said Kildare town’s Bank of Ireland branch manager Amanda McDermott. “It will be a community orientated expo with lots of family entertainment and kid’s activities too.”
Any local organisations who want to take part in this free event are asked to email Amanda.Mcdermott@boi.com for a registration form, or drop into Bank of Ireland in Kildare.
