GroceryAid Scotland has confirmed the spectacular Barras Art & Design (BAaD) as the venue for its inaugural music-based celebration of the convenience and grocery retailing sectors.
GroceryAid Scotland has announced the venue for its inaugural Checkout Scotland event with the unique musical celebration of the Scottish retailing industry set to be held in Barras Art & Design (BAaD) in Glasgow on 1 September.
On course to be the largest event in the Scottish local retailing sector this year, Checkout Scotland will be a fantastic opportunity for the trade to gather and recognise their colleagues’ efforts during the Covid crisis while supporting GroceryAid, our industry charity.
The event will see upwards of 700 convenience and grocery industry colleagues gather for a day of live music, DJs, food and fun with an array of big names and exceptionally talented artists due to be announced in the coming weeks.
The organisers can already confirm, however, that well known Scottish TV and radio presenter Jennifer Reoch will be hosting the event. Also joining the line-up are Clyde 1’s Breakfast Show presenters George Bowie and Cassi, ensuring a full dance floor as they drop the latest tunes.
Checkout Scotland will have exclusive access to BAaD which features several spaces which are ideal for a major event of this kind, including a large indoor area for the main stage, a first floor VIP area and large covered exterior space as well as several bars and kitchens.
Checkout Scotland will celebrate an industry that has shone during the pandemic, serving communities across the country with passion and energy. Critically, the event will also help raise awareness of the GroceryAid charity and the life-changing work it does for industry colleagues in need of a little help.
Producers and suppliers have already been exceptionally supportive, with AG Barr already confirmed as Headline Sponsor and Tennent’s signed up as Main Bar Sponsor. Several other major sponsors have also confirmed including BrewDog, Snappy Shopper, Mars, Highland Spring, Bobby’s Foods, Eldorado, Ian Macleod Distillers and Spar Scotland.
