Westgate Hall regularly welcomes social enterprise Bemix Discovery Catering  to our community venue in the heart of Canterbury city centre.

This wonderful group of people with and without learning difficulties, comes together every week to gain skills in cooking and catering.

Discovery Catering

Bemix supports they group to develop and prepare recipes, learn about healthy eating and use kitchen equipment. This leads to members working towards achieving qualifications in hospitality and catering and are supported to work at local catering events.

Bemix monthly pop-up cafe

We regularly host Bemix Discovery Catering’s monthly pop-up cafe. During the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, the group have continued to come together at a social distance, in our Covid-secure venue, to plan recipes for when they can get cooking again – we can’t wait to host the cafe again soon.

A trusted Covid-secure venue with community at its heart

Supporting our community is at the core of what we do and stand for – providing a trusted, neutral space for people to come together and thrive.
