Cafe Bridge in the Bromley Area (13th Oct 2022)
Cafe Bridge in the Bromley Area (13th Oct 2022)

A café bridge event is a duplicate pairs bridge game set up over multiple cafés and restaurants. Pairs move to a new venue after each round, guided by a movement card or roadbook, while board sets remain on their starting tables throughout. The registration fee covers vouchers which are valid for refreshments at the venues. The Café bridge event has a social component and raises money for a good cause, and gains custom for local businesses. Café drives also help make bridge visible to the wider public, thereby encouraging more people to consider taking it up.

Two Charity Cafe [Duplicate] Bridge events this autumn, both in the London Borough of Bromley.  The first was on Thursday, 8 September at West Wickham and great fun to play in, followed by Thursday, 13 October at Beckenham. Both events are in aid of St Christopher's Hospice.
