A pub in ‘Doncaster, Missoula on Hall Gate is digging out the bunting and getting ready for some good old fashion English fun this Easter. As the nation gears up for six months of patriotism with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics, Missoula is getting its customers in the swing of things a little bit sooner!

The pub, which is owned by Stonegate Pub Company, is hosting a weekend of parties and events from Good Friday (6th) through to Easter Monday (9th April), culminating in a traditional family fun fete on Easter Monday. Antony Dawson, deputy manager of Missoula and event organiser is hoping the weekend, which also includes a glamorous ‘Ambassadors’ themed ball on Friday 6 April, will raise much needed money for South Yorkshire based cancer charity, Aurora.

“We’ve an action packed weekend planned with our Ambassadors masquerade ball on Easter Sunday complete with red carpet, beautiful dresses and even a special ‘ferrero rocher’ cocktail created for the event in aid of Aurora. We’re also hosting a big family fun day on Easter Monday, with masses of silly games and competitions for both children and the adults, our first barbeque of the year and few other surprises along the way,” said Antony.

“Several local businesses have already kindly donated prizes for a raffle so we’re on our way to helping Aurora. We’d like to invite the people of Doncaster to join us over the weekend, especially lots of families on Easter Monday for what promises to be a brilliant start to 2012’s summer of fun.”
